The only way that you could not think it was a dominant round to Hendricks is if you were a GSP fan and were bias, because that was clearly a dominant round for Hendricks.
"dominant" means the opponent had nothing. no moments, not a second was he controlling the fight. Watch the final 2 or 3 minutes of round 2 again and tell me what Hendricks was doing other than get jabbed in face.

I'm not wanting to know HOW they should score it based on the current way they use their stupid scoring system, I'm saying how they SHOULD use the system so as to avoid ridiculous decisions that don't properly reflect the way a fight has transpired.
It's not "Well that was a 10-9 round, and anything slightly more definitive is automatically 10-8."

There's a certain threshold to be reached. A 10-8 round is supposed to be a big deal. That round wasn't. Solid, clearly Hendricks, but not by a massive margin.

Does that not fit the MMA format? Perhaps. The 10 point must system was designed for boxing, where championship fights used to be 15 rounds, and are now 12. Perhaps MMA needs a different system, make theirs a five point must (so people don't get it confused with boxing scoring), and give out bigger differentials.

Still, I think that most of the 10-8 arguments stem more from butt-hurt than actual dominance.

Fitch spent 4:30 minutes of a round in mount pounding on Erick Silva and that still was still a 10-9

This point system is just flawed shit, fights should be judged as a whole.

What? What you just listed wasn't a problem with the point system at all. It was judges not doing their job. If you dominate like that for so long it's a 10-8.
