the biggest problem with mma scoring isn't that we use Boxing judges, that is a factor sure cus they specialize but it isn't like they ignore Wrestling most of the time they score Takedowns reguardless of if they get the guy with Top possition any benefit or not. The real problem, the real number 1 problem is the length of the rounds. In any 5 minute round (with very VERY few exceptions) both fighters will perform well in some areas and have some aspect of control at different parts. That length of time in each round leaves far too much room for subjectivity.
