McAndrews tapped forever before the ref stopped it. This is getting crazy. On top of the shitty reffing that impacts the match ie dave gilrein getting stood up 3 times during his fight, twice while he had the guys back, and was working a choke, and once when he was fully mounted with 15 seconds left in the round. I understand if they are falling out of the ring, but they weren't tangled up, and the fact that they were stood up impacted the fight more than being near the ropes.....anyway...on top of that (and that was one of many examples) fighters are getting hurt when these guys ref. The admit they have no idea what's going on when the fight hits thr ground, and it's only a matter of time before someone gets seriously injured. Ryan was out forever after that choke. There is no reason a guy should have to choke someout out, then sweep them, and get up so the ref can see the guy is out. This is fucking ridiculous! This is my first post about this, but I've fucking had it!
Kevin-Good luck with your talks, and if there is anything we can do to help, let me know. I know a petition is gay, but we may need to get something like that going so these guys realize how much the fighters, and anyone who understands the sport hate some of their refs.
These guys train way too hard, and it's not fair that they should have to deal with incompatent officials.
I smell a huge write up coming.
