I don't get this narrative that Romero's round 5 was a 10-8 round. Anyone else?

    Of course it was a 10-8. Of course Romero won.

    But it’s close enough that I don’t really care. Thems the breaks.

    Plus good fight.

    The arguement is tjat michael jackson got a 10-8 and the womans fight had a judges score a 10-8. Its inconsistent with what we saw that night.

    It’s just Yoel fans trying to find a way to justify him losing the decision.

    You see this a lot on here. People are quick to give out 10-8s if their fighter needs one.

    I just can't decide if TS is a dedicated troll or really doesn't know any better. Consistently uninformed/biased/delusional posts.

    You’re right OP

    Whittakers round 1 and 2 were just as decisive as Romero’s round 4 and 5 And should be scored evenly

    Lmao

    New rules were in effect. It was clearly a 10-8.

    I personally didn’t score it a 10-8 but I can totally see why some would. Think that it could have been scored either way. Third was a 10-9. Rob was dropped but mounted good offense. I would have been fine with a draw, also fine with 48-47 Whittaker. I think that while Romero came closest to finishing the fight he lost 1,2, &4.

    Dominance is 10-8. Near stoppage is 10-7. Would have been happy with either scoring. 10-9 is impossible

    Watch round 5 without commentary - dont reply unless you've actually done this. Its definitely a 10-9 round to Romero. Could be a 10-8 but its definitely closer to a 10-9.

    I did not see the fight and don't want to watch it now, since I know the result obviously.

    but from I red and heard from you guys I am kind of disappointed. Dana was asked a really good question at the post fight press conference. Was that a 10-8 round and if not, then what is a 10-8 round? he only said that was a 10-9 round to him, but did not bother to answer the second part of the question. I know, it is not his job to score a fight, but it looks like a lot of people actually don't know anything about the scoring system or how it should be used.

    I've been repeating this all over and over again, that more 10-8 and 10-10 rounds should be used. I am affraid that with this kind of attitude there will be no progress, but we will see more and more BS decisions.

    At least we'll still have some reason to be mad.

    It could have been one but Yoel was so tired himself by that time he had nothing left to finish it.
    Even if it had been a 10-8, it would have still only given him a majority draw.

    Like a lot of scoring in MMA fights, it's debatable. I don't think, personally, it warranted a 10/8 but I get the argument.

    So Conor’s round 2 was a 10-8 despite that at the end he was in survival mode.

    Because MMA shouldn’t be judged as point karate. Romero marched right through that wimpy shit in round 1, but Whittaker was flopping around like a fish when Romero landed his bombs in round 5. Is it really that hard to comprehend?

    No. He fought back in both rounds. He got dropped near the 2:30 Mark of round 5. You cant ignore all the offence Whittaker scored with against Yoel prior to being dropped.

    I didn't watch it live and after hearing about it I assumed it was going to be a lot more brutal than it was. I kind of wanted him to rock him just 1 more time to really confidently call it a 10 - 8. There was like a whole minute where Yoel just held him.

    its doesnt matter how other fights were scored, you judgeevery fight objectively, thats rule numbher one.


    It was a close fight that could have gone either way, so they gave it to Whitaker.
