Good. There needs to be a stronger precedent of overturning bad calls. Too many times the commission stands by a bad decision.

Let them rematch and sort it out.

NJSACB did the smart, right thing here. Huge credit to Nick Lembo.

I don’t think it was so much a bad call as an incorrect call. I’ve reffed 100s of fights and it’s impossible to be in position, always, to see everything. Use of the word “bad” to me implies Peterson did something wrong, whereas I see it as he simply didn’t see it.
