Well....One Judge Got it Right.

28-28 all day. That was the definition of a 10-8 for Robertson in the third.

Amiright? Phone Post

I don't think so. A good round but not a 10-8 Phone Post

we will never get a concensus on the 10-8 criteria it seems.

 

A few events back similar round dominance in three fights got no 10-8's. It's totally ridiculous and values close rounds the same as dominant ones and robs fighters of the opportunity to make up ground by performing better in one round.

 

Drives me nuts

How is not, by definition, a 10-8? What significant offense did his opponent offer? Phone Post

Right! Phone Post 3.0

The 10 point must sucks for MMA, but it would be nice if they used it properly. Who cares if we get a few more draws now and then.

The judges are so dense and the scoring so subjective. Now there is a score card that reads 29-28 29-28 and 27-30 for the woodley/shield fight? No consistency, no accountability. Fucking garbage.

Haha thought this was about Shields fight and giving props to the 30-27 Phone Post

Good card. Bullshit judging. Phone Post

Truth!  Unfortunately, unless the round is a bloodbath that nearly results in a death it will be scored 10-9

It was 10-8 im sure. I will rewatch tomorrow and offer my fans opinion Phone Post

10-8 yes indeed

That's bullshit and needs to be addressed.

"Stealing a round" with a little action at the end should not net you the same result as the rapage that occurred in the third round of that fight. Its insane. Phone Post

ttt

it was pretty close to a 10-8 third round IMO

although it was only the last few seconds, Pierson ended the round on top and throwing punches. I think that nullified that possible 10-8 and made it a 10-9

10-8 should be very rare. The impact of a 10-8 round in MMA is far greater than in boxing due to the limited amount of rounds fought.

It shouldn't be rare just because there are only 3-5 rounds.

You honestly feel that it is right for a fighter to "won" if he barely eeks out 2 rounds, but gets smashed, rocked, almost submitted, and completely dominated in grappling the other round?

Makes no sense to me. Phone Post

They should add at least a .5 scoring system to it.

10/10, 10/9.5, 10/9, 10/8.5, etc

1/2 points just complicates it unnecessarily. Just use 10-8 + 10-7 properly. Then announce the scores between rounds so fighters know what they have to overcome. (That's a debateable concept though) Phone Post

</blockquote><br />It should work with the current system. Judges are just scared to give out 10-10's and 10-8's.
