Keep the 10 point must system.

5 well trained judges instead of 3.

Judges held accountable for consistently bad scorecards over (x) amount of fights.

So I guess?

But, yeah... more 10-10's and 10-8's would make the 10 point must system much more practical in MMA. We agree on that. I already said that earlier, in fact. I just don't know how you convince judges to award them.
I was talking about not capitalizing my i's.

And no, the clause isn't wholly independent because you are indirectly or directly the subject of each.

Don't be so defensive. Just take this opportunity to expand your vocabulary and grammar. It's not going to hurt.

Let Matt Hume take over scoring/judging in MMA.

Anyone suggesting keeping the 10 point must system or adding 1/2 pts needs to be kicked in the balls.

The main issue as it stands right now, is that there are not enough scoring distinctions.

The more scoring distinctions that are possible, the more likely it is that random weirdness will get canceled out, and the more likely the final score will move towards the "true" score.

So, go to the half-point system, and add 2 or maybe even 4 judges.

I would also argue that judges should view the fight through a monitor (do they do that sometimes?), but that is just me.

Ultimately however, nothing will help significantly if the judges don't know what they are looking at and/or they are not accountable for silly verdicts (R1 for GSP doesn't cross that line IMO, even though I do think they got it wrong).

Illinois doesn't score grappling? This report is 2 years old, has anything changed?

Eliminate judges and make the fights go on until the fight is finished. Include an extra octagon so the next fight could continue simultaneously as scheduled.
Or eliminate the judges and rule every fight not finished a draw.

Well, no. "You" is the subject of the first clause. "Idea" is the subject of the second. There's nothing "indirect" about either. In fact, I'm not even sure what you mean by an "indirect subject"; I've never heard of such a thing. Perhaps you are thinking of an "indirect object"... but that doesn't fit either. It could be you mean "you" is the "implied" subject, in the way that "you" is the implied subject in a one word imperative sentence like the sentence, "Jump!", but that would be wrong as well. As I already stated, there are no implied subjects here, just "you" and "idea."
