    Despite the noons/couture decision being bs, i noticed the scores didnt add up. Arent the totals supposed to be added at the end. 29-28 twice for couture, then 30-27 for kj. So kj had 86 to ryans 85. Or am i completely wrong about the scoring system? If so wuts the point in giving points? No pun intended

    I have always been pretty sure it was just judged by rounds and have never even thought about it being by points until now. I think the points are there for deductions and dominating rounds to help prevent draws I guess

    You are completely wrong

    2 judges gave the fight to couture
    1 judge to noons

    2>1


    Also couture won the fight anyways

    correct. that's why there's 3 judges so it can't be a a draw.. unless a judge scores it a draw.. somehow..

    You dont add the points to determine who won the fight. As long as two judges gave you the fight, then you win. Hence, there are 3 Judges.

    Point deductions

    See tito vs rashad 1

    I thought the exact same thing, why have a point system whereby a round is decided by whoever gets the most points, and then at the end of the fight the guy who ends up with the most points LOSES! lol

    2 vs. 1 judge, not adding of points.

    And yes, KJ obviously should have won that fight...

    then what's the point of giving fighters 10-8 rounds as opposed to 10-9 rounds?

    He's saying you dont add the points from all the judges together. You add the points from each individual judge to see who that judge has picked to win the fight.

    You lose three rounds wih 10-9, make an epic comeback and get two 10-8 rounds for yourself - and judge says you win the fight 47-46, even though you have won only two rounds out of five.

    Situation I've described is artificial, but you get my drift, right?

    Yea, that judge gave you the fight, but there are still two other judges. If one of them scores it the same, then you won the fight.

    no, not judged by rounds. That's why buffer says "Judge X scored the fight 29-28 fighter A". Key phrase: Scored the FIGHT.

    Because even though they don't add up all 3 judges points together at the end of the fight, the judges still add up their individual scores from each round to determine who they thought won the fight, so a 10-8 round would heavily influence who they thought won, & the fight is ultimately decided by 2 judges to 1, despite what the 3 judges accumulative points add up to.

    I can't believe how many people don't understand the 10point must system.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/10-point_must_system#Scoring

    With regards to the comment I'm quoting, you're incorrect. While a number of organizations in Japan judge the fight as a whole, the unified rules that The UFC employ score fights round by round.

    Or in a real situation

    Bj vs Fitch


    Bj wins first 2 rounds and then takes an epic beating in the 3rd which is scored 10-8 so the fight ends up being a 28-28 draw

    Because he did it was a close fight
    But he clearly won round 1

    And 2 and 3 could easily be 10-10
