Instant Replay in MMA?

LAS VEGAS, NV - NOVEMBER 30:  Mixed martial ar...

Instant replay in sports is nothing new - but it is new to MMA. Even though the State of New Jersey approved the use of instant replay a couple of years ago (or more), it has only been used a couple of times.
 

If the Illinois State Athletic Commission had already approved it, Referee Mario Yamasaki may not have disqualified Erick Silva for hitting Carlo Prater on the back of the head at UFC 142 this past weekend, and the fight may have ended differently. 
 

Yamasaki is a great MMA ref, and a very classy guy. Per BloodyElbow.com, he was a guest on Portal do Vale Tudo's podcast yesterday and addressed the subject of instant replay, which was not available to the referees at UFC 142 in Brazil:

"To err is human and it is no shame to admit that you made a mistake and change your opinion." he stated. "I think it is great for the referees (the new rule) and give us an opportunity the take a better look in what happened and finally make our decision. The athletes work so hard to fight at the UFC that they deserve it.

"(Erick Silva) showed class and maturity. He could have made it a circus with the interview after the fight, but understood the situation and behaved like a real gentleman. He is a great kid."
 

"(Joe Rogan) was doing his job and it was my mistake of staying there in the middle. I should had left before that."


He also talks about the importance creating a Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission, and subsequently training MMA referees and judges for Brazil. Please go here to read more.
