This.

They seem to count anything that lands as "significant", which is ridiculous.

I just take it as another opinion. On occasion I have a look at percentages of landed strikes or take downs to justify what I was already thinking.

It is nearly impossible to make judging completely not arbitrary. Couple that with how complicated MMA is, in the end you just have to be ready to agree to disagree.

I used to blindly never question them until I saw that shit on Gus-Jones.

Same here. They counted basically all of those little leg kicks (oblique kicks) that didn't really affect or slow Gus down at all as "significant strikes". Then, somehow, they took more than 70 strikes landed away from Gus and took 0 away from Jones, instead, they added extra strikes to Jones' tally. What a joke.

Probably about 3/4ths the time, they are usually pretty good though they seem much less accurate for much older fights like Penn vs Serra.

Well I guess they both land significant strikes here, eh? ;)
