    Just curious how come in MMA they do not show score cards after the round. It is not like judges score the fight in there entirety like Pride. So why do they not show the cards after each round. It would not only keep the judges accountable but also change the dynamics in a lot of close fights. Fighters would also have a better idea of what each judge is looking for in judging criteria while also being held accountable. Imagine in the case of Gusstafson vs Jones or a Machida vs Rampage those fights could have been a lot different depending on if they would have known the score and how to fight each of those rounds.

    Can judges change their mind after the round has ended? that could be a possible reason, or they never really thought about/bothered with it

    I'm not sure they never specify that in the rules.
