Do UFC judges have to hand in their score cards at the end of each round?

Have to say when I first read this I thought that there would be people watching the judges over their shoulders.

No they turn them in at the end of the fight. I don't like the idea that a lot of people have of showing the scores after each round. K1 does that and I think it ruins it a little bit, yeah we have some bad decisions but imagine watching a complete five round war that could go either way, but already knowing who won when they read the card. It would take a little bit away from the fight, imo at least.

I hope they give the judges direct camera feeds any not Zuffa ppv production feeds, wonder if UFC will try to sway judges decisions with bias end of round replays.

Or if you're down 3-1 you know you have to go for a knockout. Some rounds are close and fighters usually think they're doing better than they actually are. So a fighter could score the fight 2-2 and then go into the 5th with a mentality to do just enough for a win whereas if he knew he was down 3-1 he'd be head hunting.

Yeah, they don't need to announce the scores, but I would like to see the scores handed in at the end of each round.

Then my second thought was sleep monitors to make sure they stayed awake with eyes open.

Or a small electric shock whenever there is a takedown that amounts to nothing.

Its always been my understanding that scores are handed to the ref. I live in Alberta Canada and when I go to live events the ref goes around and collects the scores from each judge between rounds. I assumed this was universal.
