Brian Stann admits he is a close friend of Tom Watson’s, who was defeated by Nick Catone Saturday night at UFC 169.
However, Stann also brought into question the scoring of takedowns in an MMA fight.
Catone earned a split decision, dominating with takedowns but allowing Watson to pick him apart on the feet.
“A tough one to watch with my good friend Tom Watson,” Stann posted on Twitter. “You gotta wonder how heavy those takedowns should be weighed in this sport.”
Scoring has been brought into question numerous times over the past few years in MMA, including during title fights involving the likes of Georges St-Pierre.
Stann is a retired MMA fighter, currently working for FOX Sports as an analyst.
