More draws aren't good but if it discourages the point fighting and eyepokes then i'm in
is that Big John's Cum face?
tbh id rather see draws than someone getting a decision win in a fight that has no clear winner, also thank god for the anti eyepoke rules and the bitch ass hand on the mat=downed opponent shit
Good to see the bullshit "octagon control" criteria be relegated to almost nothing. Still think the grounded fighter rule could use some work, but it's a start.
trouble for Jones.
I read they're going to be a lot more liberal with 10-8s. I'm not liking that on paper.
Can you say a bit more about why you don't like it? That's one of the changes I like the best.
No extending the fingers????
I hate it with a passion. It's already made for ridiculous scores. Over three rounds if they give a liberal 1st round 10-8 and then a clear 10-9 for two rounds you'll have bad draw decisions. It doesn't work over 3 rounds. Either keep 10-9 or got to scoring the full fight.
I like some of the new judging criteria. It rewards aggression and damage, and penalizes LnP and Point Fighting.
I don't understand the bolded argument
If it leads to draws, but is correctly scored how is it a "bad draw decision".
I understand the second part, but with three rounds aka 15 minutes we already get goofy scores round by round. Do you really trust judges to score a 15 minute fight properly as a whole? Let alone a 25 minute one?
A lot of the new judging criteria seem to be open to interpretation
I predict a lot more robberies.
It's not perfect. Rounds that are dominant do need to be scored differently than rounds that are close, but I could see this resulting in a lot of draws in a three round fight.
Thats a stupid rule because lots of fighters use extended fingers to measure the distance.
It's going to lead to a lot of fucked up decisions. A 10-8 should be a very rare thing indeed.
cuz a draw is like kissing your sister.
Having 5 judges might be a decent idea. The scores these judges come up with are all over the place sometimes.
I agree that Hopefully they do something with the grounded opponent rule, it is very frustrating to watch fighters put one hand down to avoid strikes
hopefully the judges follow the new criteria in the right priority when scoring fights. I don't want to see anyone get a takedown, get beat up in someones full guard or is defending a sub for 1 minute and then win via octagon control anymore.
