    I was browsing this site, and it seems like almost every aggregate overall score also agreed with what the media experts judged also

    Or even better, imagine if MMA experts/MMA media experts judged the fights, and we took the average of like 15 experts instead of 3 boozoo judges

    Some of these judges have no idea what they're doing and it needs to be fixed

    Look at Benson Henderson, he lost Edgar II, Melendez and Josh Thompson

    And these just arent random undercard fights with little meaning, but title fights/#1 contender fights

    Benson was considered a LW great at the time, but as you see with his downfall and lack of success recently, maybe he wasnt that good anyway, but was gifted decisions

    This is better:

    Use 7-9 judges. All former professional fighters. Have them watch the stream (not live, as that biases judging) so they don't hear crowd noise and cut out the commentary. If its a 3-4 or a 4-5 split on who won a particular round, that round is scored as a 9-9 draw.

    Problem solved imo.

    Imagine someone like Conor losing 50-45, then legions of Conor fans voting for 50-45 Conor.

    People especially in groups are panicky, emotional, and stupid.

    We should just have them decided by straw polls on the sherdog forums.

    Bad judge decisions are a part of any sport. As long as it's not corruption, people just need to let it go.

    BJ doesn't lose his LW title to Frankie. 1st fight didn't even deserve a rematch.

    BJ vs Maynard, UFC 118.

    The judges can save 1 round but rounds 2 and 3 are decided by YOUR vote.

    There not gonna pay for 7-9 judges. And who knows that may complicate things even more. I just think regular 3 judges need to be educated on mma before being allowed to judge.

    The media also does the ranking system in which they fuck slap up, The media does not need to do anything because they get swayed into ranking somebody high in hopes they do an interview with them and help their dying outlet. The media will drop to their knees for ratings and big interviews is one way they get them.Karyn Bryant is the worst on how she kisses their ass to their face hoping to get them on MMA H.E.A.T.

    Well McGregs rarely goes to decisions

    And when he did, the second Diaz fight, the media and MMA Decisions scored it 48-47 McGregs which was fairly accurate or 47-47 Draw

    How much do judges make?

    The media experts watch the fights anyway and would judge for low cost

    Yeah the system certainly isn't perfect, but it would be good enough if the judges they had weren't complete idiots

    I do like the idea of more judges, I think five is sufficient, they are in a room, alone, except for one of those red jacketed fellas, watching an uncommented live stream of the fight. They have no phone or other outside contact.

    Scoring needs to radically change too. The employment of a ten point must system is holding this sport back.

    I guess you can't get rid of rounds, but you can get rid of their role in scoring. There should be a range of points a fighter can score, and they are cumulative and the final count is what matters.

    Round scoring could theoretically look like:

    Rd1: 22-3
    Rd2: 11-15
    Rd3: 7-12

    The result would be 40-30. Anyway, back to work

    I think TS is referring to media outlets on that website, but I could be wrong.

    Anyone can be biased. MMA media can be particularly bad.

    Calm down with your hero worship. It was an example since Conor is a very popular fighter.

    So Diaz/Conor 2 is 48-47 Conor. Say that Conor attacks the media Herr Drumpf style, and they vote Nate to win.

    Put your fucking hero worship aside no one is slighting McGregor.

    They can, but when you look at them in total, it will likely give you a more unbiased outcome than just three judges.

    Another option could be having more judges in total, because as we have seen with MMA, if just two judges are off that night, the wrong guy wins. With 5-10 judges, the chances for error are smaller. MMA Media can be bad, but when you consider the Adelaide Byrd and Cecil People types, who solely got the job because they are connectedpolitically. they make a Schulb like Marc Ramondi look like Bruce Lee.
