Should being clearly hurt by a strike be an instant 10-8?

    Boxing scoring has points lost per time being dropped, should MMA have something similar? It would at least make scoring criteria a bit more concrete

    Depends on how the round looks. Can't have a 10-8 just based on one single strike alone

    Idk, that's part of the problem. I guess you could say they either stanky legged or got dropped in some way that can be ruled wasn't a "trip" à la boxing

    Dropped or wobbled 2 times should warrant a 10-8.

    being taken down early and controlled the whole round whilst the fighter on top is active should warrant a 10-8 round.

    Mma has longer rounds and much more going on ....I don’t think you can go 10-8 every time a fighter gets hurt .....

    No. There should be no such thing as an automatic 10-8. We just need better judging and more accountability for bad judges.

    Scoring needs to be less like boxing, not more. In a 3 round fight a 10-8 is a huge deal.

    Even with a definition you'll end up with three different opinions on the scorecards.

    Idk why people want to take that fight from Forrest. He's like the Rocky of MMA who, a lot of people argue, may have saved MMA in the west with the TUF finale

    Nah I'd prefer more 10-10 rounds for bullshit rounds where nothing happened. That would solve point fighting overnight. Also, sudden death rounds for instances where there's a draw (as 10-10 rounds would create more of them of course).

    Boxing leaves it to the ref to decide, so MMA could potentially also do that

    No, and the fighter could still lose that round

    Imagine the scorecard for Sonnen if he didn't get himself triangled for Silva. Would've been the most lopsided scorecard in UFC history.

    What does that have to do with anything?

    Fight was razor thin and probably should have been a draw. I had Rampage winning but havent seen the fight in years.

    The fact Rampage was champ and they gave Forest the win was pretty shady.

    I think there should be more 10-8 rounds, but i also think we need competent judges. But to me i really don't think judging a fight is that hard. I have been watching MMA for years now and there only has been like 3 fights i truly say idk who won. Some of these judges scores i hear sometimes i'm like WTF!? Even judging on the winning fighter when i agree is absurd.
