Leonard Garcia Comments On WEC 48 War Against Chan Sung Jung (Hospital Pic)

The picture above was taken at the hospital where both fighters were taken immediately after their fight…

Leonard Garcia comments on the war he had with the ‘Korean Zombie’ Chan Sung Jung at WEC 48.  Both fighters provided fans with one of the most craziest slugfests in mixed martial arts.  For those of you who missed the WEC 48 ‘Fight of the Night’, I highly recommend you watch it as soon as you get a chance.

From Leonard Garcia:

“For me to be able to put on shows and fight and have guys who are gonna fight me like that guy, that’s a dream come true for me. I always said I wondered what it would be like to break my hand in any round and have to continue on in the fight. I told Coach ‘I think my right hand’s broken’ and he was like ‘It’s gonna be broken until the fight ends anyway so you gotta go in there and finish.’ I felt like he hit me with some shots that would have put anyone else down and I hit him with some shots that would have put anyone else down. He’s a great fighter, I think he’s gonna grow a lot. I heard some boos in the audience. I’m not here for judge’s decisions, I’m here to make fans, to give the best fights to my ability and that’s what I felt like I did tonight.”

    I strongly agree that garcia fought well against the korean zombi,as well against nam pham,but I also believe that there was a definate err in judgement in bothe fights wich leads me to believe that there is something fundamentally wrong with the integrity of the over all way fights are being judged.Perhaps there should be a post fight commision where the judging panel must submit a detailed account on the merrits of each fighter complete with video analisis and voice over to support the judges findings.Another thing would be to have a panel of commissioners who reserve the explicit right to over turn any decision if it is believed to be that the judging panel has failed to recognize something pertinent to the outcome of the fight.this could also be effective in the event that the possibilty of the ref missing a maliciuos conduct or breech of fight conduct where a fighter is decided for or against unjustly due to the misconduct.making the entire procedure open to the public from start to finish in detail in its entirety will then perhaps take the suspicion out of the game and keep it on the up and up where everyone is subject to the same fair ruling procedure.As it stands,the whole thing is really starting to stink very badly based on these two decisions alone.Is the fight game seriously okay with this and is it going to do anything about it.I feel for the fighters who are forced to live with these decisions,as I am sure everyone knows who has seen these fights that they really were dealt with in poor taste.
