    Did I have Reyes winning rounds 1, 2, 3? Yes.

    Did the better fighter win the fight? Yes.

    I feel like winning the 5th should count as though you won 2 rounds. Would this lead to more draws? Yes and i am fine with that. Its okay to have more draws. A lot of fights end evenly so why be forced to choose a winner?

    As much as we all dislike Jones, did you REALLY wanted to see him to lose this way? Razor close decision where Jones showed championship heart in the championship rounds while the other guy was on his bicycle? I dont.

    Yes, if it were a street fight and the guy losses the last 5 minutes of the fight, everyone would say he lost the fight. The scoring system is outdated and needs a revision.

    Why not have it count as 3 rounds

    The best fighter won AND beat up the other guy. The judges got it right. The haters are wrong as usual.

    The fighters don't train for a street fight they train for a 25 minute fight this debunks your argument. If it was a street fight you could soccer kick and stab somebody with a knife and 3 tools in a suit wouldn't be writing numbers down on a piece of paper and a pen.

    Some fights it seems like the right idea that the fighter that looks better in the final round should be the winner. Some fights contain rounds that a fighter got saved by the bell though. Some fights are close to being finished and if there was no break the fight probably wouldn't change directions. The independent scoring of rounds eliminates some of the luck factor as well. With 5 rounds each scored independently its almost like 5 different fights. A fighter might manage to find themselves in a good situation in a round or 2 but over the course of 5 rounds the better fighter will usually win the majority of the rounds.

    A touchdown in the 4th quarter should not count for more than a touchdown in the 1st quarter.

    In street fights...people also start rushing in and jump the guy whos wining the last 5 mins of a fight to help there boy and those people call him the loser for getting his ass kicked by three people..so yeah..

    street fighting rules should totally be used in MMA a real sport lmfao

    Why should you get more points for using your cardio late when another guy uses it early. So late cardio surpasses early pressure. Stupid, a round is a round!
