Randy Couture: Some judges don't understand the scoring criterias in MMAPosted on November 30, 2010, 05:28 AM by Anton Gurevich
UFC Hall of Famer and one of the most decorated Mixed Martial Artists of all time, Randy "The Natural" Couture, voiced his opinion in regards of the current situation with Judging in MMA. Forty-seven years old Couture stated some of the judges don't entirely understand how to score MMA fight, giving the recent fight between Lyoto Machida and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson as an example.
Meanwhile, Herb Dean opened a school for MMA Referees and Judges. The school is recognized by the Association of Boxing Commissions, and recently graduated its first class. Here's what Herb Dean had to say about his idea (Yahoo! CageWriter via BloodyElbow.com):
"The sport is growing and there are so many fight cards being held all over the place and there is always a need for additional good officials. There's no such thing as too many good officials and even the officials who are currently working need to consistently work to make sure they're up to date with the techniques that are being used."
