Bellator used a convenient rule that the champion moves on in a tournament in the event of a draw. But what would happen if neither fighter were champion? Chael Sonnen also argued last night that the one judge scoring the fight for Fitch should give him the win, but that would only apply to Majority Draws and ignores Split and Unanimous possibilities. My suggestion would be to take the tiebreaker criteria from Freestyle Wrestling and apply it to MMA. The criteria includes: Value of holds – The wrestler who scored the highest point value move. For example, if one wrestler hit a five point move and the other wrestler’s highest value move was only three points, then the wrestler with the five point move would win the tiebreaker. Applied to MMA: A dominant 10-8 round is more valuable than two 10-9 rounds. Example: Fitch beats Rory by Unanimous Decision last night. Least number of cautions. Applied to MMA: The fighter with the least point deductions wins. Example: Rashad Evans beats Tito Ortiz by Unanimous Decision at UFC 73. Last point scored. Applied to MMA: In the rare event of a 10-10 round resulting in a draw, the fighter who wins the latest round wins the fight. Example: Mizuto Hirota beats Teruto Ishihara by Split Decision at UFN: Barnett vs Nelson. It would be especially useful in the context of a tournament, but could be applied universally in a sport where athletes typically compete just 2-4 times a year.
