Forrest got the crack because zuffa and everyone else thought he'd get slaughtered, which would impress the fans and make Shogun instantly recognizable as the guy who reenacted the prison rape scene of American History X, starring Forrest Griffin as Ed Norton.
Is it possible that Shogun looked bad because Forrest is good?

And a gavel, don't forget the gavel.
SamboSteve: Fair enough, I take your point and agree. It is hard for a refree, judge etc. to go against the wave of expectation/popular opinion wen it's a close call. A jury is kept away from the media coverage of a trial so they are not swayed by what the press reports but a fight judge/ref is constantly exposed to the "propoganda" from for examle the UFC. Using the Hammill Bisping fight as an example, if you're constantly told Bisping has better stand up you'll believe it and once you believe someone's better you'll see things that might not be there.
So should we treat fight judges like jurors?
I don't like the ten point must system becasue there's too much impact from calling a round wrong. In a 12 round boxing match one tight round that is called the wrong way is less likely to alter teh outcome than one miss called round in a 3 round MMA contest.
