The Octagon 43 tournament is over. Patrik Kincl and Karlos Vemola took the main event and the champion remains unchanged. Kincl won on points, although many believed that the judges would give the match to Vémol. The situation has now been explained by the points judge Vojtech Novak.
The scoring of judges in MMA is a constantly discussed topic. Almost every tournament of all different organizations we see a moment where fans simply disagree on who should have won.
This is no different with Oktagon, where this topic has long been discussed and even promoter Ondrej Novotny himself has admitted that he is not always satisfied with the performance of the judges.
The most controversial match at the tournament with the serial number 43 was the fight between Robert Pukac and Miroslav Broz, while the latter himself claimed that he expected a draw.
The second moment was in the main match, where David Kozma, for example, saw a win for Karlos Vemola. So as you can see, the wrestlers themselves often don’t understand how to score what.
This is what the referee Vojtech Novak, who was one of those who decided for the win of Kinclo, tried to explain. Why was it so?
“Yesterday showed again how complicated or simply misunderstood the rules are in MMA. After the 50 – 45 verdict in my case, I saw surprised faces all around me, be it amongst fighters, coaches or others in the bubble around combat sports.
The interpretation of the effectiveness of striking and grappling was accurately demonstrated in this Kincl vs. Vemola 2 main event. Vémola had the pressure, he had the activity, he had the center of the cage, but the most important thing he didn’t have was effective grappling, much less striking.
His TKD attempts had no impact, damage or potential path to end the fight. Whatever you want to call it, it wasn’t there. I tried to find anything to rate in Karl’s favor, but I couldn’t find anything that qualified,” Novak wrote on his Facebook.
He then explained that even judges can make mistakes, of course, but some reactions are simply exaggerated. Such actions by judges are clearly welcome and if we read such words more often, it will undoubtedly move MMA forward.
