The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has officially decided to implement the use of instant replay in mixed martial arts according to a report from Fighters Only.
NSAC executive Keith Kizer spoke about the new rule. “The commission adopted a regulation today which will be implemented within the next 30 days to allow the referee to review a ending of a bout – if he so desires – to see if he wants to change the call.”
The instant replay rule will be used in those situations when there are questions surrounding the ending of a fight. Kizer explained. “It will be on the immediate ending of a fight due to injury and the referee feels that it would be beneficial to him or her to review the tape to see what the cause of the injury was,” Kizer said. “What caused that injury – was it a foul, was it a legal blow?”
