(You guys know this thing doesn’t even count, right?)
When the Nevada State Athletic Commission ruled yesterday to change Karo Parisyan’s decision win over Dong Hyun Kim at UFC 94 into a “no decision” on account of the various painkillers running through Parisyan’s veins at the time of the fight, I wondered the same thing I always wonder: how does this affect me?
As you may recall, I put a bet down on Kim when I was going crazy in Vegas the day before UFC 94. I lost and was forced to dance for nickels under a bridge just to get enough money to make it home. But with the bout result changed, did the MGM Grand now owe me my money back? Were they also on the hook for the price of the tetanus shot I had to get when I got home (those nickels aren’t clean, no matter what anyone tells you)?
I didn’t know, so I called the MGM Grand. Turns out, they didn’t really know either. After a lengthy back and forth, they gave up and told me to call the sportsbook at the Mirage, whose policies the MGM Grand follows on this sort of thing. So I did. I called the Mirage and got transferred around a bunch. I got told several different times that the sportsbook didn’t take calls, but my question confused enough people, and eventually they put me through to the sportsbook, where my hopes were immediately shot down.Read More ADD COMMENTS (39) DIGG THIS
