Yup. All I took from it is that even more weight will be given to wrestling. Question for everyone:
Fighter A & B start the first round.
After around a minute of feel out with no significant strikes landed fighter A starts to find his range and lands a couple good jabs and say 2 straight counters.
Realizing that he is losing on the feet, fighter B shoots in for a TD around 2:00 in and is stuffed.
Fighter A starts getting more aggressive and lands a multi punch combo. Fighter B tries to circle out but is caught with power shot and is staggered.
Fighter B goes in for a TD at 2:30 in and gets it.
Fighter B stays in guard landing say 10-15 arm punches.
There are a few sub attempts with fighter A trying to get a high guard but nothing close and fighter B finishes the round on top staying heavy and avoiding any sweeps, completely controlling the position.
Who wins that round?
I would think Fighter A based on the 2:30 minutes of standing control and landing the only significant strikes on the feet. However, I think a majority of judges would give it to B. How would you score and what do you think an average MMA judge would score it.
Well it depends, if fighter B had an active guard like pettis or oliveira and simply seemed more agressive from his back, add that to the stand up portion of the fight, under these new rules a competent judge would give it to fighter B
I think these changes are good, the problem is nothing will change becuase judges are still terrible no matter what the criteria is
