Has any fighter ever lost a 10-7 or even 10-8 round and then won the fight by decision?

    Just thinking about the scoring and it's been stated before that the 10 point system doesn't seem to work for MMA's 3-5 rounds. Unless you completely besmirch your opponent the rest of the fight a 10-7 round is a guaranteed decision loss or at best a draw with a 10-8. So, what's the point? There's no way to come back from such a points disadvantage in such a short timeframe. At least in boxing you have 12 rounds to come back from.

    Did Dan Henderson get a 10-8 round against bisping in their second fight?

    I think getting the score right should take priority over allowing comebacks.

    Frankie Edgar lost what was arguably a 10-7 and went on to score a draw in the 2nd match against Gray

    Frankie vs Gray is the closest I can think of

    I mean a 10-7 basically doesn't exist in MMA. I can't remember the last time I saw one.

    10-8's are a bit more common, but yeah it's pretty much impossible to come back and win a decision after a 10-8. Both due to the score, and the fact that you're probably pretty beat up and demoralized after taking the beating. We've definitely seen some comeback finishes though after a fighter has been on the wrong side of a 10-8.

    Edwards lost the last round against Diaz 10-8 (or at least he should have).

    You always have time for a finish, which is fair if you got your ass kicked so bad your opponent got a 10-7.

    It seems a lot more common that a guy loses a 10-8 or 10-7 then comes back and gets finished in the next round. This actually happened twice to Hector Lombard in a row. He beat the living shit out of Magny and Henderson then got stopped the round after.

    I didn't see the Lombard-Hendricks fight, but maybe it happened in that fight? Hector lost by decision but he seems to usually win the first round 10-8 before gassing. Maybe someone who saw the fight can chime in.

    Brock finished by submission. But that was what came to my mind first as well.

    Dan Henderson vs Jake Shields also. He literally mauled him the first round, then got utterly dominated on the ground.
