My best guess? Holm getting the nod over Tate has something to do with planning for UFC 200.

Steve Mazzagatti needs to be banned as a ref. All that eye gouging should have been stopped earlier. Also I like the points Luke made regarding how good Rousimar is. Even though he is so good he needs to be banned.4 years to life IMO.

+Luke Thomas The hypocrites that run SB Nation treat it as a gang banning people who
insult their friends or make astute observations while everyone on there
uses sexist remarks, offensive remarks, etc. over and over again. How
about being a man and cleaning up the forums instead of being a little
bi*#h. I was banned for calling Dave Sholler "mentally challenged" for
not having Ronda Rousey in his top 10 MMA fighters in the world. Seems a
pretty ignorant, naive, or sexist opinion at this point to think that
and I called him out and got banned. Now they keep banning me for
telling this story. Only cowards and morons use censorship and are not
able to handle criticism. The gang/bullies that run this site use bans
and censorship to edit people who voice dissent or differing opinions.
You could try being an adult and defending your position instead of
cowering behind some minimum wage comment section bullies. I thought you
were supposed to be journalists here? Real journalists welcome desent
and astute, critical observations. They do not resort to bans and
censorship simply for having a critical opinion (and a well founded one,
how much more does Rousey have to do to get sexist mens respect like
Dave Sholler?) And if me saying he was mentally challenged/sexist for
not respecting Rousey what does that make the people who ban and censor
those with that opinion? "Journalists"?, more like low intelligence,
fascist, bullies. Real journalists love questions, and thinking, not
banning people and using censorship. Pathetic and cowardly, shame.
