    Dodson has absolutely refused to engage his opponents and literally runs away sometimes and if Wood struggles to land I can see New Mexico giving Dodson a “hometown” decision

    Thoughts?

    Wood is the blue chip prospect. Dodson is the name opponent. If anyone wins a close decision it will be the prospect.

    Dodsons fight will be 1 hour before the main card. Jim miller’s fight is also on the prelims

    Is there any evidence that the 'hometown decision' actually exists anymore? Let's say in the last 5 years, since foreign cards have matured?

    I'm 100% certain that fighters have won a bad decisions / close decisions in their hometown. I'm sure sherdoggers can give me examples. I can give examples. That's not my point.

    Lots of fighters have lost bad decisions / close decisions in their hometown, and there have been bad decisions when there is no hometown favorite. These numbers would have to be compared to any decision which favored a hometown favorite to know.

    So the question is, statistically, have hometown fighters won more bad decisions / close decisions than non hometown fighters?

    Because let's face it, if there are 20 bad decisions with no hometown fav and then 3 bad decisions against a hometown fav and then 1 good decision for a hometown fav, we all know the typical sherdogger will rant and obsess and rage over that 1 good decision in full denial that statistically nothing funny has happened.

    Miller comes to bang so wouldn't mind him being on the mian card. Dodson on the other hand...

    I'm not sure about statistically but I remember Diego Sanchez getting probably the most hometown decision of all time after Ross Pearson kicked his ass for 3 rounds.

    Absolutely.

    But he also got one against Kampmann in Kentucky. Not on the same level (on a scale of 1-to-bonkers the Pearson fight was a 9, Kampmann probably a 6), but somewhere along the same line.

    Wood is a very exciting prospect, surprisingly well-rounded for a British fighter as well. Hopefully Dodson doesn't ruin this fight.

    Dodson...from a glimmer of hope in Dodson vs. DJ 1 to being someone absolutely nobody wants to watch.

    A damn shame.

    Just trying to make the point that they are 2 examples of controversial decisions, 1 hometown and 1 not.

    If you think Kampmann was a 9 and Pearson was a 6 I'm cool with that - it only strengthens my argument :)

    I haven't watched either in years.
