In my opinion I was down right shocked when they announced Bisping as the winner of that fight. I was wondering if the Refs were watching something different

rogan has some pretty honest scoring IMO.. .
Regarding that bisping win, its expected.. they fought in England. what do you expect. the only way for Hammil to win that one is by stoppage or sub.

They call that a draw.

Here's a thought post the score after each round then the fighter knows where he sits. Ring/cage type fights aren't known until the end! Think about it could make for more exciting fights. These are the only sports you have no idea. It could revolutionize the sport. Everyother sports the score in know all the way through. Put a large scoreboard above the octagon the judges submit scores into a computer and tallied scored is shown above now the fighter thats down knows he has to give more.

thats actually kinda interesting. A fighter may think he is ahead in his mind but be behind by the judges and kick it up the next round. Fighters would be pushing themselves more.

Or they might give up if they're behind.

You could judge by damage - this would also appeal to simple casual audience. Plus its the closest to the intention - simulating a fight. When time is up its like the point in the fight where the police show up and the winner is the one who spends the lest time in hospital.

That's an excellent idea. The only problem is I can see a fighter barely winning the first round and (knowing this for sure) they lay n pray the next two rounds for the decision.

Mayweather jumping to MMA?

Found this on ESPN.com thought you guys might enjoy. Figured I would post here since this is where most people go. If a moderator wants to move it that is fine.

http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/box...t&lid=tab3pos1

I think it would be interesting to see it happen but don't think it will.

BTW what isn't Mark Cuban trying to get involved in.

I agree it would be an interesting transition.

But when you read a quote from the linked article "If I said there's a guaranteed $30 million payday, Floyd would be lacing them up," Cuban said you gotta think that he is not getting into an MMA ring/cage/octagon anytime soon. Who in the world of MMA is gonna guarantee ANY fighter a $30 million dollar payday?

And why would Mayweather take anything less? He can receive virtually whatever he asks for in boxing.
