Timekeeper oopsie

When does a difference of six seconds in an MMA round matter? When that round is the first round of Gerald Harris / Maiquel Falcao, where Falcao locked in a fight finishing choke and Harris was saved by the bell.

    LOL I made the same video and was 5 minutes from uploading it. What a way to waste of 10 minutes of my life!

    Something tells me Harris was the “favourite” to win not just in the odds.

  • RaginAsian says:

    You could’ve saved me 4 and a half minutes and said fast forward to the end.

  • Letibleu says:

    Timekeeper should be asked if he or anyone he knows had any money on this fight…

  • greenseed says:

    ragin: if you couldnt figure that out on your own then you deserve to lose 5 mins!

  • agentsmith says:

    Now I understand why they make the on-screen clock disappear after the 10 second mark… cause they don’t want to draw attention to the fact that the horn may or may not sound exactly at 0.

    Also probably because the on-screen clock is not directly connected to the official timeclock, but I like my first insinuation better.

  • agentsmith says:

    I would’ve been cool with them shaving a good 4 minutes or so off of round three though.

  • jbreau says:

    There’s a couple spots that seem fastforwarded in the actual fight, we noticed that while watching the actual PPV… don’t think it’s a time-keeping issue.

  • SST says:

    I was telling everyone at the bar that Falcao was the new Wand, then he decides to coast in the 3rd round.

  • cochra27 says:

    That’s sort of a big deal.

  • Millertime says:

    Jesus Christ who is the nerd that does that?

  • P W says:

    Does anyone know for sure if the on-screen graphics are directly synchronized with the official time keeping, or if it’s more like a rough estimate?

  • Blackula Jonez says:

    Even if they are not they should be synchronized.
