    and should not be an indication of winning. That said, fighters shouldn't be punished for exploiting loopholes. Judges just need to be more educated and the criteria needs to be more clarified.

    your spinning it...if you let the round be so close that a single take down late can swing the score of that round in their favor you have already fucked up. Stuff the take down. Its not a loop hole, its a wrestling based game plan,take him down without enough time for him to get up, its smart.Quit with this just bleed shit lol

    Agreed but we've been demanding judges be more educated since the early 2000's. Look where we are now unfortunately, still on step 1.

    there shouldn't be judges in the first place and if the fight doesnt end in a finish both get -50% off their purse

    If everything was close before the takedown, why wouldn't the guy who scored it get the round over the guy who got taken down?

    Sounds like he did more and should be rewarded for it.

    How would a fight be called off then? I've always liked the idea of most fights getting 1 15 minute round while main events get 1 25 minute round.

    I meant if a fight was to go on without judges involved. I should've worded it better lol.

    Whats even worse is when they do fuck all the whole fight and then decide "to bang" for like the last 20 seconds.

    fuck off with that shit why didn't you do that earlier!

    I've used this example for years as an indictment of the 10pt system of scoring MMA fights. The 10pt, round by round, system has always promoted points fighting. Nothing is worse than a guy looking at the clock and shooting for a do-nothing takedown with 10-20 seconds in a round thinking it will win it for him.

    Start scoring fights as a whole, similar to the way Pride did and make damage the main scoring criteria and you won't see shit like that.

    MMA is the only sport that took it's scoring system from a different one, boxing. In boxing they have many more rounds to make up for poorly scored or extremely close rounds.
