    So in a sport that scores fights round by round, you want the decision of the last 2 rounds to effect the first 3?

    Yeah sounds genius

    @Al Stone @KBE6EKCTAH_CCP

    Fans dont see this but Jones starts every fight with a 2 round lead, the judges just dont write it down.

    Before the fight started judges has it 2-0 Jones.

    Reyes won rounds 1-3 making it 3-2 Reyes.

    Jones won rounds 4-5 making the final score 4-3 Jones for the win!

    According to sherdog jones lost his past 6 fights so it evens itself out

    The SBA theory mentions a one round advantage, but there is room for interpretation of course.

    In any case yes you have the mechanism covered and I don't see a problem.

    Now let's discuss Fighter Kevin Lee Vs Islam.

    Let me start by breaking down the 100% fallacy of your notion which will display that I am not a genius but you just may not be on the level. It's really quite elementary. A fighter who starts slow and picks up his momentum is TYPICALLY looked on more favorably than a fighter who started strong and fizzled. Any fight fan that analyzes how fights are typically judged knows this. Any dominant champion knows this and utilizes it to his or her favor. Just because it hurts your gina wont make this go away my son
