| | How should MMA rounds be judged?
If you were judging a UFC fight, what criteria would you use to score points to the fighters. Also, what kind of judging system would you use overall?
In a UFC fight with a 10 point must system, I’d always score the first fight with loser getting 5 points. The loser of the next fight would get points relative to how well he did in the fight compared to the last loser. If it is about the same level of domination from the winner, then it would also be a 5. Under this system I would have judged the Tito Forrest fight as such:
R1: 10-5 for Tito.
R2: 10-7 for Griffin
R3: 10-7 for Griffin
Then the final score would be 25-24 Griffin.
For overall MMA judging, I’d give 100 points divided between each fighter per round. If one fighter was winning 65% of the a round, then he would get 65 points and his opponent would get 35 points.
