Do NOT change MMA Judging, it's perfect!
Well, here we are.
when you think about it. of course the judging is awful.
But because of that awful judging and the fact that you never really know who wins the fight unless there's a finish. Fighters will, more often than not, be reluctant to let it go to the judges and hunt for the finish.
Imagine if the judging were perfect (it couldn't be, but just imagine for an instant that it were), how many more fighters would we see, just riding their way into a points based decision? How many more fighter would we see fighting "safe", and not to lose rather than fight to win?
So all in all, judging is not that awful but I wouldn't say it's that good. And that's what makes it perfect.
"don't let it go to the hands of the judges" (they might rob you of your victory, better go for the finish and control the outcome yourself)
