CABMMA’s complete statement (courtesy of MMAJunkie.com):

The Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) has done a relevant research and analysis of precedents involving government and independent regulatory bodies to decide on how to proceed in Leandro Silva-Andrew Dober´s case. There was no international jurisprudence found and record of overturned result based on an incorrect judgment call of the referee, when specifically not related to misinterpretation of the rule.

After receiving a detailed technical report from Mr. Eduardo Herdy, referee in charge of the bout mentioned in the case, which in the end clearly states that his stoppage was to preserve the fighter´s integrity, being that his highest responsibility when it comes to the duty of a referee, he has admitted his professional mistake and is willingly in favor to forgo his authority in the bout.

Due to the factors involved and after receiving Mr. Andrew Dober´s formal appeal, CABMMA has defined a fourth provision regarding the change of decision after contest or exhibition, which follows below.

“The Executive Committee may, on an exceptional basis, revert a decision to “no contest” if it determines that a good faith judgment call of a referee was mistaken and therefore considered a self-evident error. Such decision may be taken provided (i) an appeal is filed with the commission within 72 hours of the relevant bout, (ii) the appeal is accompanied by a video (or link thereto) of the bout showing the challenged judgment call, (iii) upon request by the Executive Committee, the relevant referee presents a written justification of his judgment call and (iv) after analysis of the relevant video and justification, the Executive Committee determines that the judgment call was in good faith but considered a self-evident error.”

In addition, based on the success of the New Jersey State Athletic Commission and its resource to help prevent similar cases by the usage of instant reply, CABMMA will study the possibilities of using this same resource in future events where promoters have the infrastructure to provide so. New protocols are, as of this moment, being analyzed with the purpose of identifying such palpable errors during the events. It is important to state that Mr. Larry Hazzard, Sr. (Commissioner) has shown CABMMA a new perspective of conducting events in Brazil, creating a safer and fairer environment for MMA.

Regarding Mr. Eduardo Herdy, CABMMA is thankful for his professionalism in recognizing this error, helping the entity evolve in its regulatory affairs in Brazil by seeking the development of higher standards and demonstrating his commitment as an official referee of the sport.

Consequently, after reviewing the case, the Executive Committee presided by Mr. Rafael Favetti (Chairman & CEO) and Mr. Cristiano Sampaio (COO), has decided to overturn the result of Leandro Silva vs. Andrew Dober bout and is officially determining it as a NO CONTEST.

One has to wonder if there wasn't such a big stink about this fight and the questionable decisions of that ref would they have changed it to a NC before all this? Personally i think the big backlash over how corrupt this makes Brazil and the commission look is the only factor as to why this fight was changed. Other wise they would have just told Dober so sorry but no.


Maybe i am wrong or reading into nothing but i really do feel that way.

Oh that's for sure what happened. Why else make a "special" rule out of no where, especially after stating that nothing would be done due to no rules/regulations were being broke. Even though I'm pretty sure they were.
The rules state: (i) it determines that there was a collusion affecting the relevant result

I think that after Dober and the rest of the MMA world found out that the Ref trained with Leandro Silva, collusion was a pretty obvious choice... to anyone who isn't Brazilian at least...

They're just covering their asses with this new rule, hoping to avoid a true investigation, proving that there was corruption and collusion.
