I should clarify, I'm not talking specifically about the Bisping-Hammill fight - or any other specific figt - just the scoring in general.

For whatever the reason, the current scoring system is prone to some really wild decisions. No, I don't know how to make it better. Yes, fighters should just finish the fight and avoid the decisions.

(Alright, I do have ONE suggestion to make it better: Have an option for "Sorry, you both lose." Give the fighters a reason to excel, not just suck a little less than the other guy.)

curious how you all would feel about a scoring system based on all 3 rounds instead of a round by round basis. so basically they give the fight to whoever won the fight overall and not on a round by round basis. thought/ opionions?

learned long ago MMA may be a sport but the UFC is a business.

A draw still isn't a loss.

The judging should be changed to fully suit MMA. For example, if a person is on top and just lays there while the guy on the bottom is punching, trying for escapes, trying for submissions, the way it is now, unfortunetly, the guy on top is viewed as the winner of that round. Although he wasn't doing anything to his opponent other than just laying on him, he was in the more dominant position.

This has become a more noticable thing in MMA. Because a lot of mathces can be won this way, if a fighter is losing the standup, some fighter just get the take down and lay on the guy. It's an easy way to win a fight if you are uncertain you can win the fight in any other way. I don't have anything against the 'wrestlers' of the sport. There are some great wrestlers who combine great takedowns with ground and pound and submissions. It's the people who have to get repeadily stoop up due to their inactivity in that position.

A lot of people seem to want the Pride judging style of overall damage done to the fighter per round, which is a better way of judging than what the UFC is dealing with, but still in my opinion isn't fully suited to MMA. I think the perfect judging style would have a combination of overall damage, activity/aggresivness, takedowns, reversals/escapes, just more of an overall impresivness of their fight by rounds. I'm sure there are more and better suggestions, but something DOES need to be done. Can't have this great sport going the way of boxing.

I'm glad I'm not the only person to think the scoring is inconsistent... to say the least.
I agree, if you saw the Guida vs Griffin fight you know that Guida won the 3rd round. Tyson was certain that he lost that fight that when Guida reached out for his hand Tyson just walked away looking dejected.

Yes, scoring is really weird, they are not consistent and base it on the stupidest things. Judges is a UFC weak point.

come on now man....even you have to admit that matt dominated the standup lets not be silly here

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.
