New Scoring System in UFC?
Wondering if you guys think UFC needs a new point system, I think overall, mma is to complicated to use a standard 10 point boxing style.
I think I point system like the use in grappling tournies like NAGA would be great and you'd see better decisions. 2 points for takedown, position change, etc.
What you guys think?
However flawed the 10-point-must system is, it's better for MMA than a point-per-technique system.
a point per technique system would be absolutely horrible.
i still think pride judging is the best.
Keep it the way it is, just require judges to actually know what the **** they're looking at instead of bringing over Boxing judges who have no clue.
just cause judges are required to follow 10 point must and a 2 drink minimum...
Yes a point per technique system would be bad, for I could see it favoring grapplers, who might get the fight down and just change position a bunch of times with half-hearted sub attempts, so that by the time they got back to their feet, the striker wouldn't be able to catch up to take a decision.
But I do think that judges knowing what they are looking at would be a starter. If a fighter continuously takes his opponent down and controls the pace of the fight with little action or counters on his opponents behalf then he wins the fight IMO. Just because the other guy landed a few more punches that get shrugged off, and the takedown guy didn't finish the fight on the ground doesn't mean that he deserves to lose *cough Bisping, cough*
Knowing is not enough, you must apply...
...Willing is not enough you must do
They should leave it pretty much as it is.
Only change I would suggest is to allow 10-10 drawn rounds.
Is there a way we could get damage meters? That would be awesome.
Also, would it kill the judges to use 8's more often? I've seen quite a few fights where one fighter dominates one round, only to have it erased by an uneventful nearly even loss.
Regardless of whether or not you were joking, you should go stick the business end of a knife into your asshole now.
