Today the commission in Brazil decided to overturn the referee’s stoppage in Silva vs Dober fight. On the surface this seems to be a great thing. But as the day has progressed I’ve started to see other things come out of it. Specifically other fighters lobbying to have other commissions do the same thing in their fights. I’ve seen fights overturned for many reasons, drugs, illegal blows, but never due to a referee’s decision. This is an issue that has played out in football and baseball in the last decade, but should this be something we allow to happen in MMA? Should we take the decisions to stop a fight out of the ref’s hands? And what else could come of it if we do.
