0,5 point system would solve judging robberies

The Athletic commission takes the model from boxing where there are many rounds scored either 10 or 9, with 8 in case of a knockdown. This is flawed because MMA is more difficult to judge due to it's nature, and there are usually only 3-5 rounds. When a judge doesn't know who won, he should give 0.5 to each, but usually they follow intuition or some type of bias and give someone the round. If there is a clear winner 10-9 would be fine, and if there is complete domination 10-8 may be awarded.

Fights like Bisping vs. Hamill, Shogun vs. Machida, Machida vs. Rampage off the top of my head and many others may have different outcomes.

This may not however, be solution for fights like Melendez vs. Benson that could be scored as a draw, but that's why there are rematches.

Even with 10 point must, judges occasionally score rounds 10-10. The solution to judging 'robberies', is to risk losing by trying for a finish.

i agree, 0.5 could solve some issues.. personally when scoring a fight i will give score 10-6 for dominant rounds, and only give 10-9 if its very close but one fighter edged it out... 10-7 and 10-8 rounds are judged accordingly too.

i know this is not how the fight is gonna play out in real life but lets take Penn vs Fitch for example... i would give 10-9 or 10-8 rounds to penn for the first two rounds, and the last would be a big whopper of a 10-6 for fifth.. making fitch the winner of the fight overall..

i cant remember the fight exactly but lets just say penn got the first two rounds 10-8 and 10-9 and fitch the last round 10-6

that would make the score 27-26 for fitch... something like this might make for a better scoring system...

Let me look for the article but the CA commission did a test of this and determined that it really didn't change anything at all.

If judges scored rounds a draw, that would solve things pretty much. No shame in fights being draws either, I dunno why there is such a bad stigma behind them. I guess it's communist to score draws or something lmao

Another thing they can do is have a sudden death round, have it be like 1 minute long or something, and the fighters know to swing for the fences for that one minute. Then winner of that round wins the fight, problem solved.

They already did this in Canada for a little while, when Ryan Jimmo beat Soukuju by 48.5 to 47.5 decision (or something like that). The only thing that would change is the fighters with 2 really dominant rounds might win.

Why not just use a scale from 1 to 10 and be done with it.

10-9 round = extremely close round.
10-1 round = monumental beatdown.

So if a fighter loses the first 2 rounds 10-7, he can still win a decision by winning the last round very impressively. eg. 10-3.

In fights like Edgar vs Maynard 1, the first round should count for a lot more then a solitary point. If you take a first round beating like that, and then win the next 4 rounds 10-9, you would still lose. Thats how I think this shit should be scored.

I now await somebody to inevitably come along and blow massive holes in my theory.
