    According to God Bless the Ring (hat tip: Hiroshi), the finish of the Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Kazuo Misaki fight has been overturned.

    Misaki was declared the winner by brutal KO in the fight. However, the decision has been officially changed.

    Although Akiyama did get KTFO, Misaki did forget the rules and I think the fight being ruled a No contest was the right decision.

    unfortunately, misaki is signed for the next Sengoku, so no rematch anytime soon

    me and my roommate watched it live and right as the kick happened, i said it was an illeagal blow. I think they knew it aswell at time because they didnt show 1 replay of the kick but every other fight they would show at least 1 minute of highlights in the fight. This 1 they just moved right on.

    So we should overturn winners of football games if replays seen after the game prove a different ruling?

    that's stupid.

    QFT, but if they didn't rule it that way initially doesn't mean it should be "fixed" after the fact

    If the ref doesnt rule it an illegal blow they shouldnt go be able to go back and change it later. That would be like realizing a fight was stopped prematurely and having the fight continue on later. Just like a baseball umpire, a MMA ref is part of the sport, and the fact that he is human and makes some mistakes is part of the sport as well. We could have a laser controlled strike zone and pressure sensitive bases that would never make a mistake, but that takes away from the sport. So does going back and chaning bad or missed calls by a ref.

    at the most they maybe should allow changing the results within 24 hours, but to change it after a month? :wtf:
