Thread: First time UFC judge Ruben Najera - what an impact he made

Hybrid View

  1. Default First time UFC judge Ruben Najera - what an impact he made

    Not sure if anyone caught him or not. But he scored round 3 of the Sarah Kaufman Jessica Eye fight for Eye which gave her the split decision.

    Not even in Leonard Garcia's dreams could that of happened.

    Here's to hoping he never judges another MMA fight.

    Didn't two judges give it 30-27 for Boetsch? I had him winning 2nd and 3rd but certainly not the first round. I need to see it again as I have some doubts whether he won second or not. Anyway that could have been a draw easily. That was a strange fight for me to watch, it looked like in slow motion to me and I didn't expect that from those two guys.

    Also I didn't see the first round of Eye vs Kauffman but I had Kauffman winning 2 and 3.

    -Tim Boetsch def. CB Dolloway by split decision (30-26, 27-29, 30-26)

    That score card is fucked. How can two judges give him all three rounds including a 10-8 round and another give the fight to Dolloway

    The 10-8 round came from the point deduction.

    It was a close fight, I have no issue with the scoring. I don't agree with it but I can see where they got it. I personally gave CB the first but if you overvalue the take down I can see how they gave it to Tim.

    Thanks that makes a lot of sense. I still haven't watched the prelims.

    It was a close fight, I'll give you that, but how can anyone NOT have an issue with scoring when one judge gives all three rounds to one fighter and the other judges give all three to the other fighter??? It is tough to imagine any scenario where that would be reasonable

    That's happened a number of times, why is it that hard to imagine? If you agree they were close rounds why do you find it difficult to accept that one judge may have thought CB edged out each round while the other two thought Tim did?

    Which round did you think was so decisive that there was not a case to be made for the other guy winning?

    the Boetsch/Dollaway scoring was messed up...maybe I need to watch it again but I had CB winning all three rounds but of course with the lost point in the third making that round a draw so a final score of 29 - 27 Dollaway. at best Tim won one round which would make a draw and I don't think a blind man could have given Tim all three rounds. as far as the womens fight it was a close one but they got the right winner in the end I think.
