    10-7's? They better be rare. The opponent can rally with 10-9's in two rounds and still lose the fight.

    They should put together a video of rounds that illustrate the new scoring criteria.

    They really, really need to do this.

    I heard they're giving Woodley a new skin next patch.

    Currently Paragons and Smite. Used to play Dota / Dota 2.

    Would love to see effective striking become more important, octagon control become less important, and for there to be a lot more 10-8 rounds.

    Hopefully that's what these new rules do, but I'm not too confident much will change.

    Applied retroactively for example, I'm sure Dodson comfortably beat Lineker then.

    Of course there are countless others.

    How is smite these days i played it a bit during beta and when released but its been a few years

    Was pretty cool i loved that crocodile with the charge and displacement guy was beastly

    Maybe they will do albino woodley and then he would have deceptive explosiveness to any newcomers

    Leonard Garcia getting twistered = Defcon 1

    Holly losing two in a row = Defcon 2 and 3

    Jon Jones getting suspended = Defcon 4

    This = Defcon 5

    So true! In what other sport do the referees warn people after they break the rules? Have you ever seen an NFL referee allow a touchdown even though there was a flag for holding by an offensive lineman? Breaking a rule should cause the fight to be stopped, and for the rule breaker to have a point taken away. Fighters will learn real quick to cut that crap out or risk losing points and possibly fights.
