    What's more 10-10 than even strikes. If you save 10-10 when literally no strikes are thrown you will never give them out. Those rounds are as 10-10 as it gets.

    Hello Luke! Solution is easy! Make an average! 3-4 unannounced weighs during training camp! plus at same time 3-4 ped drug tests. Easy! You have to redefine weigh classes though. But it will be healthy!! They will still take testo directly after the 1st test (because athletes will think that after the test they will have at least one test free day and testo disappears after 12-24 hours tops (see Lance Armstrongs Story) but you can breake even that habit by sometimes testing twice on 2 consecutive days. 2 birds one stone!

    effective striking grappling aggression and octagon control were the rules for woodley/thompson fight...if the strikes were the same in the first 2 rounds....wonderboy clearly had aggression and octagon control those first 2 rounds....i dont see 10/10 based on the old rule set that was in place for that fight

    I always believed in a title fight the challenger has to take it to the Champion and they have to give it there all to beat the champ, Wonderboy seemed happy just to not get KO'd it was his worst ever fight . Usually he goes right at it from the start he has not done this to Woodley in both of the fights.

    In an ideal world, fighters shouldn't know their opponent in advance. Show up the day of the fight, in shape and hitting weight and then fight their opponent. Forces fighters to work on every aspect of the game and most importantly avoids losing fights on cards. That would avoid game planning which I think is really a bad thing. In the same spirit, fighters shouldn't have their coaches in their corner during the fight. All that would allow us to see the fighting in the purest form. Also fighters should weigh in right before the fight to avoid any bulking up before the fight. You don't make weight you don't fight, and are replaced by somebody else. That being said, this would be obviously be a marketing nightmare since you can't promote anything. But yeah, in "ideal mma world".

    How can you say it's silly to call rounds 1 and 2 10-10? The strike differential was 1 in round 1 and 0 in round 2 according to that stats you listed. There wasn't any dominant grappling or really damaging shots (knockdowns etc). Those seem like textbook 10--10 rounds to me. What would you call a 10-10 round if not those two?

      miguel madrigal Год назад

      Gabriel Verdon the scoring guidelines have aggression and cage control as categories to look at for a reason. first is how effective you were, next is aggression if your opponent was inactive but defended against your attacks and making them ineffective, and lastly cage control which is who holds the middle of the octagon for longer. watch the fight with that in mind and you will understand that while the activity was scarce, there was enough to score it one way or another

    Regardless of the end result, Swanson vs Lobov is pretty ridiculous match-making. I'll stay true to this even if Lobov schools Swanson and KOs him. Anything can happen but that's not the point. Holly knocked Ronda out (which I celebrated) but I still think to this day that Holly didn't deserve the title shot

    Nevada hasn't adopted the new MMA judging. I feel really sorry for Tony Ferguson. He held up his end of the bargain, but in the long run I'm glad. The UFC was making this BS belt for no reason. This was going to be be a #1 contender fight. It didn't need to have a belt on the line. The UFC was putting a belt on the line because in a perfect world GSP beats Bisping. Maia beats Woodley. Then GSP fights Maia to have 2 belts. Then McGregor goes up to welterweight to have the mega-fight against GSP.

    Funny, everyone is criticizing Woodley for a boring fight, but wasn't Wonderboy in the octagon also? Woodley was the only one who provided any excitement in both fights. Thompson did almost nothing in two different contests, yet not as many people are criticizing him for his poor performances in two championship bouts. The bias is so obvious.

    Here is a potential solution to weight cutting that I thought of. If you want to solve the problem with weight cutting leading up to the fight make a fighter drink so much water that they have to pee 2 times within an hour. Check the dehydration levels of the urine. (Clear urine = full body weight) Then weigh the fighters fully hydrated. This will cause fighters to show up to the weigh ins fully hydrated or they will be forced to drink copious amounts of water in a short amount of time causing their weight to become very similar to their walk around weight.

    I thought what "Equality" meant in sports was Equality of Opportunity, not of individual skills, size, or otherwise. Noone's ever going to be equal in terms of physicality, nor do I think this is a common argument. What can be equal is being given the opportunity to compete.

    The funny thing is people are still "worrying" about what is good for Nurmagomedov. While I hope he recovers 100% physically, I could care less about him in the sport of mma. He doesn't get to pick and choose when is good for him to fight. You miss weight, you get injured, you want to observe religious holidays, fine, but everyone else doesn't get put on hold to fit you needs.
    Ferguson v McGregor for the real belt. If he doesn't want it, Ferguson v Alvarez for the interim.
    If/when Nurmagomedov does fight, he should be doing it on a fight night or fox card and he should have to fight 2-3 top 10 guys and make 155 every fight to show goodwill he can make the championship weight. He can't be trusted to main or co-main a ppv, or even kick it off!
    It's like what happened with dos Anjos and McGregor. McGregor was ready, dos Anjos got injured and McGregor moved on to Diaz and the rest is history. dos Anjos lost his big money fight and he never and probably won't ever get it back, especially with another recent loss to Ferguson. In mma, as we all know, it's about being prepared, being on weight and taking opportunities when they arise and don't lose them because of your own indiscipline.

    The thing about Khabib is that things like liver malfanction is very hard to predict. He made this weight in the past many times, and for sure he was monitored by a nutritionist, it's not necessarily a mess on his part. Cutting weight is a dangerous business. the other thing is now that he had this issue how safely can he cut weight again. that's the whole additional pressure on him. on the other hand there is really no other relevant fight for the title, since McGregor is not coming back to defend the title against Tony, esp if he gets to have his boxing match that would set him up financially for life, so for Tony it's still Khabib. He can fight Alzvarez maybe, that's the only other relevant fight that makes sense, but still once Khabib is back, there should be a Tony vs Khabib.

    Weight is the only way to judge a persons size, in fighting. Unless you start judging by height and build. I look to the HW division and wonder why so few people have an issue when a 230lb man fights a 265lb man. While at the same time, in the lighter divisions. If a mans walk around weight is 10lbs heavier than his opponent, there's a big controversy about his size afterwards.

    • Jonathan Blandino

      MrJabloney They typical all are strikers somewhat and have 1 hit ko power. At some point no matter how much bigger a person gets the other has the ability to crack the others jaw no matter the size. Also 230 guy gets endurance and cardio benefits over the 265 guy. More give and takes at that size.

      kopxpert I never said rankings shouldn't mean something but as of right now they are a complete joke and are meaningless. When the number one contender gets overlooked by a guy who has never had a fight in that weight class it makes the ranking system a complete joke. WME-IMG should understand good "fights" sell in the long term. In the Short term WME-IMG will put on these money fights for PPV buys but when the product comes up short a casual fan will feel his money was wasted and will not buy the next PPV. Hopefully with the prediction of PPV will slowly be a thing of the past and the new TV deal will bring a new era. I hope this new era brings upon us fights that make sense, the top of the rankings will be fighting each other for a chance at the belt, and the product becomes true again. If you don't have to worry about PPV buys and you just want to put out the best product you can out then rankings again will be something of significance.

      @sbrmilitia - Rankings mean nothing? Really? Whenever I see fans, coaches, media & fighters talk about next fights, first thing they look at is rankings. Same thing when ppl say UFC belts mean nothing. Yeah right.... the only fighters who truly don't care about belts and has turned down title fights are the Diaz Bros. All the other fighters are obsessed of getting/keeping the belt (and understandably so). Just saying...
