    I replied to a guy who said "I'm comfortable with dropping your opponent being a 10-8" by saying that I'm not comfortable with it. I wasn't claiming that what I said was the actual criteria, I was stating that the actual criteria, is in my opinion, a bit retarded.

    I thought Carwin/Brock R1 should have been a 10-7.
    Doesn’t affect the outcome, but Brock did nothing and that fight could have been stopped.

    I think it’s in the books as an official 10-8.

    That should have been a 10-7 based on the wording of the criteria.


    I am fine with the more liberal use of 10-8 rounds since the new rules were brought in. A fighter shouldn't have to damned-near kill his or her opponent to get an extra point in front. That's silly. A fighter dropping his or her opponent and then controlling them and nullifying their offenece for most of a round should be a 10-8.

    Yoel/Whittaker should have been a draw, though obviously that wouldn't affect who was champion.

    Agreed. Knockdown in boxing is vastly different. There are flash knockdowns in boxing all the time but, there are also many more rounds. In addition mma has a lot more variables, a lot more reasons to not have your base set etc.

    Rd5 Romero was close to 10-8 but, anyone saying 3 was is delusional.

    How and why should he defend a third time?? He beat Romero 2 times and that with injuries.
    Gay Jesus could not even make weight and he should fight again?
    Romero should atleast beat 2 top 10 MW fighters, then and only then he can think about a title shot again.
    Whittaker with both healthy hands and legs will have an easy fight.

    10 - 9 close round
    10 - 8 dominant round
    10 - 7 getting beat up and almost finished for 5 min

    thats how it should be

    Pretty much, for me things as just swapped over now that instead of favoured fighters getting 10-8's more easily as was the case its now unflavoured fighters who don't get them.

    I originally wanted Romero to win and imo he did, but honestly fuck it he missed weight for a goddamn title fight. The most disrespectful thing you can do. I'm glad he lost.

    As far as 10/7 rounds go, Edgar vs Maynard round one was a 10/7 imo.


    Carwin missed way too many shots against Brock for me to call that a 10/7. At the time it looked brutal but upon rewatching it you can see how little of that gnp really landed on anything but forearms.

    That’s the simple version, but it can get more complicated very easily.

    What if one guy “outstrikes” his opponent with pitter patter, gets a couple TD’s, presses his opponent against the cage, for 4 minutes....

    But for one minute he gets rocked, floored, put on rubber legs, and nearly finished?

    Pride judging would give that to the guy who almost got the finish (see Hendo vs Ninja Rua).

    But the post Tuf generation of fans adhere to this idea that if one guy is winning 90% of the time (or 80% in my example) that he deserves to win the round.
    Wand vs Bisping led to a lot of debate regarding this.

    LOL you're saying punk losing those rounds was the equivalent of what happened with Romero and Whittaker? You just made yourself look stupid AF, CM punk fought like he never had a day of training in his life. Whittaker had decent output in every round, minus the last half of round 5 but Romero wasn't doing anything but hugging at that loint

    It's crazy to me that people want to call it a 10-9.

    Have to agree that 10-8 rounds and Haley's Comet have something in common.
