Add one extra judge

If 3 out of 4 judges give a close round to the same fighter than that is that.

If they split on the round and the fight is a draw, then have a 3 minute overtime

If there are an even number of close rounds that are split then the decisive rounds decide the winner. I'd rather have 1-2 rounds in a 5 round fight be even and go by the definitive rounds then controversial rounds. And it is a lot harder for 3 out of 4 judges to get a round completely wrong.

The pride judging criteria is the answer.

Also have judges get graded and only the best can judge title fights. Just like in the NFL or NBA, only the refs with the best performance ratings over the course of the year can ref the playoff games let alone the championship game

I know they look at fight film but the should have to watch fights live and judge them and then have other people confirm they scored the rounds correctly. And they need to watch and score a minimum of so many rounds before being certified.

So a 29-28 fight could easily be scored 29-29? ...?

The only criteria that needs to be added is no longer letting boxing judges judge MMA bouts.

99% fucking fixing points system threads are criminally stupid.

Well done TS, under your system Saturday would be a draw.

And so would half of controversial decisions.

So you've created a DRAW system.

WHY CAN'T PEOPLE THINK.

Probably because it's one of the stupidest things a judge can do

Can't we just tell judges to not be scared to score 10-8 rounds?

I mean we have a scale of 1-10 to grade a fighter, I find it dubious that each round should be so close that one fighter is barely better then the other.

A damage rating? Nah, that's a disaster waiting to happen. You think fighters are gun shy now? Just wait until they have to worry about cuts and black eyes.

Get rid of "Octagon Control". It means fuck all. Stop scoring takedowns, as if they were knock downs. Start rating defensive maneuvers, like stuffing takedowns, and avoiding submissions. Also, start rating aggressive maneuvers, like sub-attempts, and effective clinch work.

Overall though, the best solution would be to get judges who knew what the fuck MMA is all about.

The problem is the house and the org pressures judges to not score close rounds 10-10.

Making judges "pick a winner" in toss up rounds allows for the house-favorite fighter to get the win in close fights, as that's the fighter that 90% of the judges are going to pick in a coin-flip.
