Over the weekend, UFC president Dana White made sure to express his frustration with the Nevada Athletic Commission after awarding Timothy Bradley a victory over Manny Pacquiao inside the boxing ring. During Tuesday’s UFC 150: Henderson vs. Edgar II kickoff press conference, White continued his quest for the use of technology when scoring fights.
“All other sports, everyone has used technology to make the sport better, except for combat sports,” White said. “Let’s get some instant replay. Something needs to be done, but they don’t listen to me; what difference does it make?”
White has talked about the use of video to overturn a bad or missed call. He said refs are not all bad, they could just use some help in making decisions.
“(Bad decisions) happen every week in the UFC,” White said. “It affects records, places in history; it’s a big deal and needs to be fixed.”
When asked which state has a good commission, White mentioned New Jersey, adding, “it seems like they are trying to work to make things better.”
