Bobby Green Trashes the Current State of UFC Judging

Bobby Green Trashes the Current State of UFC Judging

After an [incredible Fight of the Night](https://www.bjpenn…

“I DON’T FEEL LIKE WE HAVE GOOD JUDGES. I CAN’T EVEN CARE WHAT THE JUDGES THINK. SOMETIMES, THEY’RE TOTALLY ON, AND SOMETIMES, THEY’RE TOTALLY OFF. THAT’S THE WAY IT IS IN OUR SPORT. WE DON’T GET ENOUGH CREDIT FOR WHO’S PRESSING THE ACTION. A LOT OF TIMES, ONE GUY CHASES THE OTHER GUY AROUND, AND HE TICKS AND TACKS AND RUNS, BUT HE DOESN’T GET THE CREDIT FOR BEING THE AGGRESSOR. EVEN THOUGH WE SAY WE JUDGE UPON AGGRESSION AND CAGE CONTROL, THEY DON’T GIVE ENOUGH CREDIT TO THOSE THINGS. BECAUSE IF I DON’T PUSH THE FIGHT, THERE IS NO FIGHT. WE’LL JUST BE STANDING THERE LOOKING AT EACH OTHER. BUT NOBODY UNDERSTANDS THAT. UNTIL YOU’VE FOUGHT, YOU WOULDN’T UNDERSTAND THAT.”
