Why no 10-8 rounds in Fitch-Maia?

Taking the back for 4:50 isn't a 10-8?

Was wondering this too. Thought first was definitely ten eight.

You are correct... Complete domination means nothing.

No 10-8 rounds for Maia?

Maia dominated the first two rounds of that fight completely. Why don't the judges give the same respect to grappling domination as they do to striking domination? I was sure that fight was going to be 30-25 on all three cards and was shocked to see it was a unanimous 30-27. What say you Sherdog?

judges who aren't aware of the criteria.

that was overwhelmingly dominant grappling, which equals a 10-8.

He didn't threaten with any serious submissions or come close to finishing the fight with strikes. He did have dominant ground control, but to me 30–27 was the correct score.
