Pettis-Guida is the perfect example of it. Guida decided where the fight was taking place, Pettis decided what was going on during the fight. Guida via UD.

Rauno is right. And imo the judging situation is starting to really hurt the sport both from a credibility stand point and a marketing stand point. Once fighters can't just lie on top of guys the sport will naturally evolve to become much more exciting.

The people who would be interested in MMA in it's current form already are. They need to find a way to bring in the guys who currently think it's boring and that they don't want to pay to watch a guy lie on top of another guy for 15 minutes.

Knees to the head on the ground would help a lot too both by giving wrestlers another strong weapon when able to get to a dominant position, but also by making shooting in a desperation take down a less viable strategy especially if you get stuffed.

The people who would cry about knees on the ground being too barbaric already call MMA too barbaric and dismiss it, so why are we pandering to them?

Jon Fitch + knees to the head on the ground? Yes please.

Actually no.

All he has to do is just show up and he'll get a win apparently, I mean I can understand how the judges gave it to him the first time considering the one shining moment he had busted up Edgar's face which cuts easily to begin with so people thought he did a lot of damage but he did nothing for four rounds in the rematch and he somehow still was granted the decision.

WTF, 10-2 in the votes.

I'm shocked at the amount of people actually really rooting for Diaz to win here. Maybe Kreed was right after all, and MMA fans are all a bunch of racists

I kid, I kid, but I,am very surprised to see so many people easily picking Nate to win. I expect this to be a back and forth war with Nate eventually sinking in a sub in the championship rounds.

Could really go either way though.

^Pretty sure any of those people would admit its close to 50-50. Just a lot of Diaz Bro fans out there and Bendo-attitude-haters.

Why would racists be supporting a Hispanic fighter?

Well you know you can be racist against one race and not another, so hating a black/korean and still liking hispanics would be very possible.

Not that I think race has anything to to with it, and I think grapple was kidding too but I'm just pointing it out.

I voted Bendo because I think he's going to win, but I'm totally rooting for Nate, seems many others gave Nate the vote for the same reason, because I doubt they all think he will win.

Bendo just happens to be the UFC-fighter with the least amount of fans ever, understandably.

Sounds like a lot of work.

Not familiar with Kreed? He thinks that everyone on this forum is racist against black people.

Pretty much this, I'm sure if he saw this thread he'd have a stroke and claim the only reason we hate Bendo is because he's black, even though I'm sure the majority of us root for atleast one black fighter.
