    Fresno was a big surprise with all the shitty uncalled-for standups and the shitty judging.

    Now, I for one, enjoy the fact that empty TDs don’t account for as much within those new rules and also stand ups if someone is stalling, but these fucktards in Fresno took the new rules too LITERAL. They’re just so inconsistent and incompetent.

    Now with that said, how the fuck are we or even the fighters going to figure out how to win a fight?

    New rules didn't change the scoring of takedowns or when standups should happen. Fresno was just some old fashioned incompetence

    Most people (UFC commentators and fighters included) don't know how little the new rules actually changed. They:
    1. Changed the definition of grounded fighter
    2. Allowed refs to take points for extending fingers towards the eyes
    3. Slightly more clearly defined a 10-8 round
    4. Made grabbing the clavicle legal

    Any reffing or judging abnormalities you see are due to different refs/judges having their own interpretation of the vary vague and subjective rules

    it is obvious that refs don’t have the balls to deduct points. Basically they’re saying go ahead and eyepoke as much as you want, i’ll keep giving you warnings. Same for fence grabs and groin shots.

    Rules without enforcement aren’t rules. Just recommendations.

    Its all subjective, Northcutt was taken down in the first minute and stood up in the last minute of the round and many Sherdoggers still say he was gifted free standups
