Strikes thrown by the 10-9 club, including but not limited to fighters such as MM and Edgar.
(Stop with the Gray Maynard KO and the Benavidez face as evidence of their striking abilities, these guys buzz around like flies, they keep connecting and they're very difficult to swat)
The only significant moment of Gray/Frankie #2 was when Gray was beating the crap out of Frankie in R1. Then there were 4 more rounds, and somehow the fight was scored a draw.
R1 should have been 10-0 or 10-1. What did Frankie do to get 8 points? The 10-8 courtesy score allowed him to play patty-cake and get a couple of surprise TD's (for no reason and of course every fighter he takes down escapes within 2 seconds).
The only significant moment of MM/Benavidez was when Benavidez floored MM, mounted him, and went for the guillotine.
The only significant moment of the Machida/Page fight was when Machida rocked Page, floored him, mounted him, and then attempted the armbar.
Somehow, all these 10-9 BS, with rounds that are basically even, somehow overrides the true result.
Fightmetric needs to DIE. Most misleading way of analyzing a fight.
This 10-9 crap needs to DIE.
If one fighter get destroyed bordering on a stoppage/sub/KO, then the round should be 10-2, not 10-8. LOL at "9 OR LESS".
The patty-cake style of fighting with light taps and useless TD's needs to DIE.
The least Zuffa could do is put all of those fighter into a separate league, where they could compete with each other to see who can win the most 10-9 rounds, who can get the most TD's, who can play patty-cake better, and some of you "real fans" can appreciate how those 'fighters' "dominate".
