Indeed, it would happen though, or the other way round. Someone wins one round, draws the next round and when mounted thinks at worst they have gained a draw. Obviously I know not many people would think that wayThat would be a very sloppy and negative way of thinking.
I think sometimes it just takes experienced judges, not the scoring of it.
Did you see TUF the other week? Not sure what went on there, but apparently one judge ruled the contest 10-8, when the guy who scored 8 dropped the guy onto his back in that same round!!!I think sometimes it just takes experienced judges, not the scoring of it.
I think the TUF judges are pretty experienced ones too (I would guess by the way Matt spoke to them), Matt Hughes went ape shit.
when home shows get judge, mostly home fighters get favouritized by the decisions, because sometimes the home crowd can influence the judging
You'd think not. I would have thought if you get dropped you automatically score a 9 that round, whether the other person scores a 9 or 10 depends on the rest of the round, but how on earth they scored it 10-8!? Crazy.Obviously not that experienced then eh!
It happens though I guess... I am sure something will be changed over the up-coming years. The thing is I guess you don't want to make it like points jujitsu or something or it gets 'too' technical and overly complcated. MMA right now is simple, fans can follow it easily (new fans included) if the scoring gets to a point where every little detail is analysed it takes away the fans ability to judge a contest and will probably be counter-productive.
I have so many other things to think about, I never see a fight in full without being distracted.
so, my answer to your question is, I cannot comment on the judges 100% due to not watching the fights 100%.
