    Boxing and MMA are two different sports with totally different scoring criteria, did you know?

    Round 1 should have been a 10-7

    Need decimal points to confuse judges even more. I give that round a 10-8.8

    The fact commentators bring it up so much now is pretty disappointing.

    10-8s were always pretty obvious, as it usually was when one fighter got absolutely dominated. It's fucking ridiculous Paul Felder doesn't seem to know how to score a 10-8 well. More unjustified 10-8s seem to be given out now than ever.

    Which is crazy, considering it has been constantly addressed by fans, media, fighters, commentators, and promoters since the inception of MMA judges.

    Boxing is out of control in almost every department.

    Agreed. It would also be nice if they quit saying "he's hurt, this could be stopped" after every decent strike that lands too.

    I was giving an example using historical knowledge of the system. Get banned again you scrub tool.

    i always liked in mma that someone can get dropped or rocked and still win the round. but there does need to be something set in stone. imo its comon sense what should be a 10-8, but i guess thats to much to ask these days

    The problem is nothing is consistent, the rules change state from state, and some judges just put marbles up their ass

    Yes this is really annoying. My pet peeve is when they start saying "oh that's really deep" and sometimes before they even finish saying it the fighter is out of the sub already

    10-8 shouldn't be limited to only striking you can get a 10-8 round via grappling dominance but it usually requires multiple sub attempts and a lot of time on top in side control, back control or mount.

    8's need to be way more common and 7 should be the new 8.

    Sure, a certain amount of fatalism is necessary in sports, and probably in much of life, but saying something is opinion doesn't mean it should be entirely subjective. Opinions need to be based on some sort of metric, or we are dealing with caprice instead of opinion.

    If one fighter knocks another down with strikes and has more significant strikes in a round, it is a solid opinion that this is better than a round in which there is little action, but one fighter lands a short combo or a takedown at the end to seal the round. And yet both are scored the same by the rather silly MMA judging system. Words like dominance are what we use know, and they are simply too broad to yield good results.

    A better definition for 10-8 round would be a round where one fighter won by a solid, but not dominant margin, but within that round hurt his opponent substantially at some point, either knocking him down, or visibly rocking him.

    Or we could have a different scoring system. I really don't feel like a 10 point must system is meant for 3-5 rounders.

    You're not wrong. I guess I was just expressing my sentiment. I would like judging to get better, just not holding my breath. lol

    This is why judging is all over the place. This is clear as mud. It is up to individual interpretation. It is no wonder the judging is so f..ked up.

    I can't believe what I'm seeing... Or maybe I can, it's sherdog afterall.

    You guys want these terrible judges to give MORE 10-8s? Ah, yes, let's give these shit judges more leeway to get the get the scores even more wrong. This is exactly why the new judging system should have never been implemented.

    They know what they're doing. They're priming us to get used to even worse scores
