    if one fighter is:

    -Champ
    -Conor
    -A big star that makes money
    -A girl with boobs/avg+ looks/instagram following
    -Key to a specific market/demographic
    -Up for a potentially lucrative match

    Then assume the judges may award that fighter any round which is even remotely close +/- 1.

    Add it up.

    Could that fighter win?

    Then assume there is a possibility they will win.

    I’ve believed for some time that Jones would never come out on the losing side of the judges scorecards. So I was not surprised at all. Also not disappointed.

    Someone has to finish that guy. It’s that obvious to me. And I barely care anymore. The last few years have taken a great deal of my enjoyment for this “sport” and just sucked it right out.

    By never allowing Joe Solis to judge any fight ever again. He had Jones winning 4 rounds to 1, Ewell winning a shutout, and had Krause losing round 1. Guy is a joke. He's right up there with Cynthia Ross and Adalaide Byrd. Disgraceful.

    To qualify for a judge in Texas you need to watch a couple of fights on YouTube and to know the difference between standup and ground game.

    Texas always had its share of bad MMA decisions, like Hernandez Trinaldo or Northcutt Gouti. They mostly cheat to help the Texan, just like when Soliz gave the first round to Giles. Can we consider it an improvement that they also make bad decisions when there's no hometown fighter?

    I thought it was a pulse and a library card. When did they raise the bar?

    They also have a rep for shit boxing decisions, again in favor of the hometown guy.
