One comment I heard about scoring was really interesting. Instead of scoring 10-9 for a round as a whole, judges should score 10-9 for striking, TDs/grappling, and control separately. You don't take away the 10-9 system and each judge will give 3 10-9s per round.

so you dominate striking for 4:30 seconds than get taken down and it is a tie.

It wasn't my idea but I guess that's a problem. I would say 10-8 for striking and 10-9 for wrestling if that was the case but judges still wouldn't get it right consistently. There will never be a perfect system but something has to change.

I like it, but for all fights, not just 5 rounders.

I also like the idea of 2 referees. One ref outside the cage to act as a second set of eyes. 2nd ref wouldn't have the ability to stand fighters up, just signal illegal techniques.

You deal with statisticians on a regular basis and don't believe in them? Sounds weird. I have a strange belief in statistics and would be interested in hearing why you don't. Kind of a math geek.

This. 3 competent judges would be fine. Or at least 3 incorruptible judges.

5 judges is a pretty good idea.
