    We really need to get consistent judging. It’s gotten worse over the years, especially with new rules and old rules

    Unify the rules already. Get it figured out. Millions of dollars are invested into this sport.

    Fix the problem.

    I still think pride scoring is superior to anything these crackpots have come up with

    Round by round scoring doesn’t work with mma. Who won the fight? Keep it simple

    Who was the closest to getting a finish? Who did the most damage?

    Not sure how I feel about it winning with Whittaker and Gadelha and losing with Benavidez, Arlovski and Anderson.

    imo that's the best scorecard. i can see an argument for Yoel stealing round 4 but it's more accurate to give that round to whittaker and a 10-8 for round 5

    Yeah, I kept checking and it dropped to +100 and then -120 right away.

    Honestly. If I was a judge I might have scored Rd 4 a 10-10

    I'll take the win and I don't think it was a crazy robbery. But I would have felt better on Romero at the end

    I live bet Whitaker after round 4 at + odds as I thought he was **probably** up 3-1, at worst 2-2. After the fight I was HOPING I'd at least get a push. I don't know how that's not a 10-8. I straight up won a bunch of $ I probably didn't deserve to win. I need to remember this when I feel like I've been robbed. It goes both ways.

    by the way thanks for the positive feedback on my blog everyone. analytics look really good so far with minimal promotion so i'm looking forward to keeping it up throughout the summer and beyond.

    i feel very fortunate but that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to "luck" and "robbery" decisions for me. been on the wrong side more often than on the right side.

    hell i could use the same type of luck in other sports too...

    Damn. Had a multi on gadelha, holly decision, whittaker and colby decision. Changed colby for rda last minute and missed out on a couple thousand bucks

    MMA judging sucks

    Had Whittaker bet but feel Romero deserved the win.

    I thought it was a draw. Round 5 is 10-8, Romero won round 3, and round 4 tightened up with Romero's strikes in the last 45 seconds.

    Did not have pre fight action on it, but live bet Whittaker going into round 5 at -120. Won most of my money tonight putting the house on Mike Jackson when I just decide to go big right before the fight.
