Default Cote vs Sakara

Reading post fights articles & such

the only thing i read is this :

The referee was horrible

i personally find that Sakara was horrible

Dan mirgliotta said he warned him 2-3 times

i just find it unfair that the ref gets all the bad press & Sakara get away with it

Sure but you step in after he took a couple of punches to the back of the head not after 10 punches to the back of the head

Confused and sad ending to what was looking like a great fight for as long as it would've lasted.

my 1st reaction was to blame the ref, no doubt about it

i mean if you take the fight of Erik Silva vs Carlos Prater
where silva got DQed after 1 or 2 punches, its crazy to think that Sakara got away with so much

but when i think about it its much harder for a ref to do the right thing in these kinds of situations, its happens real fast

& as a specator its hard to really judge whats hapening & whats being said
My conclusion is that Sakara im mostly to blame in this & no-one even talks about it
I just hate fighters who do sucker moves like that

I still think Miragliotta is mostly to blame.

Heck Sakara and Miragliotta are both to blame, I just think the ref had the control (and plenty of time) and leverage to correct the situation, so he had a greater responsibility.

I think Sakara was really careless, but shots to the back of the head happen all the time. The ref saw them, and did nothing until it was too late, then stoped the fight after Cote was already TKO and he probably expected Sakara to get the win anyway.

Now that's world class ref douchery. In all seriousness, I don't think Miragliotta's a douche - I just think he froze and made a bad decision.

Which still doesnt make it right. But because of bad reffing, everybody loses.

Miragliotta's credibility is shot, Sakara loses, Cote gets an unwanted win (which by the way, the only way they could do "damage controll" on Miragliotta's bad judgement - was to rule it a no contest, but instead they gave Cote the win, making hometown judges - and Canada - look bad). And all the fans who came to watch a great match lost out too.

All in all, a crappy job at reffing and wrong call by judges in not ruling it a no-contest.

I dont remember Dan doing major mistakes in the past...

The only thing that comes to mind is the eye poke he gave to Heath Hearing
That was hilarious
poor guy
