why not use all 10 points??

Someone please explain this to me... why the hell do we have a 10 point must system if judges NEVER use all 10 points?? When someone gets completely dominated, shouldn't that be a 10-1 (or 10-0) round?? Instead, a complete domination is 10-7.. which means it's effectively a 4 point system...

There's been talk of implementing 1/2 points.. WTF?? How 'bout we just use all 10 points?

They should just call it a 3 point system, that is what it is.

Has a round ever been scored 10-7?

I agree completely.. if you simply survive a around (with ZERO offense), you get at least 7 points.

I know the 10 point system is a carry over from boxing - which I don't know much about.. is it the same there? Has there ever been anything less than 10-7 in boxing?

dunno.. I figured it could have happened given we've seen plenty of 10-8s..

according to the official rules of boxing, the minimum number of points can not be less than 6

Then why even have 10 points? As far as I'm concerned, that's a 5 point system....

The scoring system really makes no sense.
