10-8 Rounds - What's with the increase of these?
So last night Colton Smith apparently got a 10-8 round somewhere along the way in his fight with Mike Ricci and at the FOX card they were giving 10-8's away like it was nobody's business, namely the Ben Henderson/Nate Diaz fight, Alexander Gustafsson got a 10-8 round against Shogun as well.
Now I'm not gonna dispute the overall decision, Ben clearly won and dominated as did Colton, but a 10-8? Sorry, but I'm not seeing 10-8 especially when Gray Maynard got a 10-8 for his beating of Frankie Edgar back at UFC 125, if those were 10-8's then Maynard should have got a 10-7 for what he did to Edgar.
It seems like judges are being very quick to give out 10-8 rounds and these could very well influence the outcome of a fight. Anyone else noticing we've seen a lot more 10-8's lately
