I've been noticing something more and more frequently in MMA scoring and it happened twice last night. We all wish that damage was a criteria in MMA scoring and all see problems with the ten point must system. We also recognize that there are far too many bad decisions rendered. That said, I've been noticing more and more of a certain kind of bad decision that you'll never hear me complain about. It happens when a point fighter, who otherwise should have won on the cards, takes a great deal of damage in an early/mid-round. When this happens, it seems to sway the judges against his point fighting style in later rounds. According to how TD's and ground control are usually scored, our point fighter should have taken more rounds than his opponent but having absorbed significant punishment in an earlier round, his TD's are scored as less valuable in later rounds. Happened with Mo/Page and Chandler/Brooks last night and, I have to say, it's a development in MMA scoring that I really like!
