The rounds are scored. However, what the fighters are doing to win the round is not really objectively scored. Basically, the judges watch the fight and decide who they believe looks like it's winning the fight, and they give that fighter the round. It is mostly based on subjectivity. Meaning, there are no points for strikes to the limbs, strikes to the body, strikes to the head, clinch against the fence, TD, must be defended submission attempt, back-take and etc. It is all based on the judges' subjective experience and feelings of who looks like the winner of each round. This is a huge problem that needs to be corrected. What the fighters are doing to win the round must be scored objectively and not with subjective language like effective striking and significant strikes.
