I like Rogan's "why don't we have 7 or 10 judges" suggestion.Need more rounds for less decisions. 7 for champs, 5 for regular fights
Theres no reason to not have more judges, but more rounds would make the rounds worth a lesser percentage of the fight too. In boxing a round is 8% of the fight, here it was 20%I like Rogan's "why don't we have 7 or 10 judges" suggestion.
10 judges, aggregate score, rather than rounds won, and I think you would cut down on the crazy variance.
The boxing ten point system doesn't make any more sense for real fighting than the wrestling point system would. I can see how adding scoring guidelines like they have in other combat sports that would help quite a bit. A back take should be worth more than laying and praying in someone's guard. A legit submission attempt, set up and executed properly, should be worthy just as much as a slip knockdown or big punch that lands.
That's fucking stupid. If it's an even fight, sure take that into consideration. But if Reyes outstrikes Jones by a large margin and clearly does more damage, then to me, Reyes controlled the octagon that round, even if he was backing up.
I mean, just because a dude is moving laterally while another is coming forward doesn’t mean the former isn’t in control. That’s how Ali an Holmes both fought. Reyes was totally in control the first 3 rounds, even if he was moving around.
