By

on

Dana White voiced his displeasure with the refereeing at UFC 96.  Yves Lavigne admitted his mistake in the Pete Sell/Matt Brown match, and Rick Fike is taking flak for what many are calling premature stoppage in the Aaron Riley-Shane Nelson fight.  Chicago’s MMA brings in veteran referee Rob Hinds to discuss the situation with a critical eye.

Second guessing the ref on a difficult call is easy to do when you are on the other side of the fence.  As Hinds points out the action is taking place much faster in person than it appears on television.  He helps bring perspective to the “craft” of good refereeing.
