Fight Opinion Radio: Episode 15

By Zach Arnold | April 21, 2006

Print Friendly and PDF

This week’s show is sort of a therapy session for our co-host Erin Bucknell, as we review the UFC 59 event that took place last weekend and the (to some fans) unfortunate loss that Andrei Arlovski suffered at the hands of (the new UFC Heavyweight champion) Tim Sylvia.

In addition, we take a look this week at some of the recent bizarre decisions made by judges appointed by athletic commissions in America in regards to MMA fights (Bonnar/Jardine, Tito/Forrest, etc.) Rob Sayers contributes his list of suggestions this week on how to improve the overall quality of MMA judges.

Also, some thoughts this week on the yakuza scandal in MMA (in Japan) and what it means ultimately for the future of the fight industry in that country.

The 15th edition of Fight Opinion Radio is now online and available to download. Here are your options for listening to the show:

One Response to “Fight Opinion Radio: Episode 15”

  1. You mentioned multiple times that you were criticizing the “UFC judges”. It bothers me when people make comments about “UFC Judges” because the judges are not owned by the UFC. Thus, they aren’t “UFC Judges”. Please don’t further this misunderstanding. Thank you. Other than that, it was a good show! BR
