A man has taken an illegal blow to the head and is likely concussed. The fight should be stopped. That is, unless, you are Jorge Ortiz and you give an obviously hurt Mirsad Bektic five minutes to recuperate.
With some of the recent horrors of officiating and fighter safety, one would think it would be a no-brainer to call off the Bektic-Chas Skelly bout after an illegal knee from Skelly scattered Bektic's brain. This is especially true in the wake of a fighter's death in South Africa and a fighter collapsing from the stool in the RFA organization.
Instead, Ortiz risked Bektic's health by allowing him to continue and take more shots to the head. Luckily, Bektic won the fight and didn't take too much more damage. However, things could have been a lot worse and Ortiz should be ashamed of himself.
Ortiz was also super late in stopping Alex White's drubbing of Estevan Payan. Payan was clearly in la-la land, but he received about five or six extra shots to the dome before Ortiz stepped in to stop the bout.
It was just another blunder in the rough night of Ortiz.
Not only that, but the judges delivered some interesting scorecards throughout the night. Many people had Ray Borg beating Dustin Ortiz, but two judges saw otherwise. It was a close fight, not a robbery; however, it set a standard for later fights.
Jordan Mein clearly won two of three rounds against Hernani Perpetuo, but one judge gave Perpetuo two rounds. It was a decision that left many scratching their heads, even though Mein escaped with the win. It could have been worse.
Luckily, most of the decisions were clear cut. The judges couldn't have screwed up most of the decisions unless they were holding an envelope full of marked money.
These issues may seem minor, but given how misscoring one round can change a fight, they seem like a big deal to me.
