    I don't think you were actually if my memory serves correct. It's a bad sign that it potentially could have happened twice!

    Anyone who thinks the promoter is doing the right thing here needs to stop following and/or working in MMA imo

    It sucks. Pretty sure a similar thing happened with Ali Arish too, but that got reversed again:

    The Eddie Podolski fight was changed to a NC after pressure from one side, but then changed back when people called them on it.

    My personal favourite has to be a friend of a promoter being asked to step up and judge on the day of the show.

    The dude got slowly more hammered throughout the evening and when a local favourite who he knew had a submission locked in, he proceeded to get up from the judging table and shout "Snap it!"
    Tremendous.

    I think the Sherdog Fight Fighter team refused to recognised the promoter's amended decision once they knew what had happened

    It's a shame it's happened now. What if Artur had won would the result stand?

    Are they saying that the judge scored it wrong or just his involvement with a competing team? As surely if his score corroborates with the majority and looks as though it has been scored effectively, based on the fight that occured, then result should stand. By all accounts if 2 judges had it to Artem and 1 a Draw then he only scored it the same as 1 other 'reputable' and 'non involved judge'

    Fair play to Sherdog, they must have watched the fight

    Does anyone here think Sowinski should have won the decision, that was there watching or has watched the video? I havent talked to one person who scored it for him

    You could maybe have a 10-10 in there but even a round to Sowinski is reaching in my opinion

    I think once even Gary got asked to be a judge, crazy!

    I wondered what John's take on it was. It seems to have blown up in their face a little and their rep damaged.

    Bullshit call imo. Regardless of who the judges were the promoters made that decision and should stick by it.
