    Thats how its done in Sumo and they do great that way.

    Can anyone tell me why the first 2 rounds on official scoring where computer printed while the last 3 were handwritten? Never seen that before. Looks strange

    Eddie's bang on the money, that one judge in particular clearly didn't have a fucking clue what was going on all night. Corrupt or incompetent doesn't really matter at this stage but he should never be allowed to judge a fight again. Veteran fighters would at least have a clue.

    Fighters aren't exactly reliable themselves..

    We will continue to complain and whomever you put there will screw up sometimes.

    Sometimes epic screw ups

    So are all the refs great? Pretty much all of them are ex fighters but they get plenty of criticism.
    Having ex fighters might be better or it might not. All that's needed are competent judges. Where they get them from doesn't matter. Their performance should be reviewed and if they're terrible/getting scores wrong then they should be dropped.

    They should have DC Judge everyone of Jones' fights.

    The problem is that fighters could be impartial because they may have a relationship with one of the fighters fighting.

    I don’t think you have to have been a professional fighter to judge. The problem is that the guys they’re sending out to to judge don’t know what they’re watching and are scared to make big calls. You can know what you’re watching without having been a fighter.

    Let the Yakuza come back and assist with the judging, PRIDE style

    Everybody wins...

    Fighters are punch drunk idiots. I’m sure these decisions would be worse that they already are.

    I would say it was a good idea but Not all fighters would make good judges the same way as not all fighters make good trainers.

    I would consider being a referee a much more difficult job than being a judge.

    You don't even need to know what you're watching. It's not like judging is hard. Someone that doesn't know anything about MMA judges correctly 99% of the time. It's a fight, you can tell who won a round by just seeing who kicked more ass.

    Fighters will have inherent biases too. Imagine these no wrestling ass wannabes hating ass "insert fighter's name didn't beat me they sniffed my crotch" type fighters judging. It'd be a disaster.

    A complete noob can sometimes score better than a judge but it’s obviously not the answer.

    Train better judges, because it's clear Soliz never read the mma judging criteria, and then have more judges on a fight.
