    So anders had a fairly solid win this past weekend over this Perez character. One judge had it 30-26 while the other two had it 30-25 and 29-28 .

    All three of those scores are pretty drastically different from one another including the 30 26/ 30 25 scorecards. Those are some pretty significant differences in opinion on judging the fight. Have the new rules allowed for even more inconsistent decisions and will it negatively impact future scorecards? I think most fans including myself were excited that more 10 - 8 rounds and 10 -7 rounds were going to be handed out ,as well as agreeing with the new judging criteria ,but seeing a score card like that can't help but make me feel a little concerned going into the future.

    Obviously this fight it didn't matter it was a dominant decision, but based purely on the points it looks concerning for more subjective fights. What's your take on this ? Just weird judging ? A problem with the new judging criteria?

    I deleted my DVR of the event but I swear on two occasions I saw the judges laughing and talking to each other (facing each other) while the fight was going on! One judge looked to be on his phone at one point.

    No idea wtf the judge saw that scored the fight 29-28, my God. Anders beat the guy down badly.

    I haven't seen the fight but I noticed the scoring discrepancy in the re-cap as well. Seems odd, but business as usual unfortunately.

    They told the judges the new rules were into effect and they took it to the extreme. These judges have a 4 year old brain.

    Not sure the point of this thread.

    Marlon Moraes vs John Dodson had cards going 30-27 in each direction. That's a much wider discrepancy.

    Never leave it in the hands of the judges, doesn't someone keep saying that?
    He knows what he's talking about.

    I have tried to explain it countless times that more variables in judging only adds controversial scorings. It is simple math, but people just dont seem to get it.
