The Jinh Yu rig was in, absolute robbery. "Unanimous decision"

T.J. DeSantis, you suck and shame on you , Julie Kedzie, because you're a fighter and should know better. NONE of the 5 rounds were clear at all so to act like it was obvious, to call it a robbery, or for T.J. to say after the final bell and before the decision was read that "Frey didn't have a claim to any more than 1 round" should be considered journalistic malpractice. 

This fight is a great example of why pure rd by rd scoring is bad especially when there is apparently no consideration for the fight as a whole. 

Needs to be a town hall style meeting between the fighters, refs, AND judges before a fight card where the fighters get to ask questions and the judges tell the fighters what their criteria for winning the fight are (and this should definitely include the words "towards a finish") 

And is it really that hard to find announcers with an open mind?

I just got to watch all of Invicta FC 30. I was really impressed with Alyse Anderson and her submission over Alba. I've been watching Zappitella for a while now, and though I picked DeCoursey in the fight, I thought she'd be able to win, and boy did she, Zappitella made a big statement in that fight. Geltmacher blew through Kennison with ease, and Brogan Sanchez surprised me taking out Maverick. Spencer did what I thought she would and I think they need to run back Frey and Grusander.
