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.

Author K. S. ( ago)
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".

To tag off the DEXA scan idea: Would using it then mean that a 170 pounder can only be X % body fat, Y % lean body mass, etc.? What would the penalties be for making weight but missing your body fat number?

Disagree, reach is exactly like speed. Its a massive factor in fighting.

Author Gabriel Verdon ( ago)
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?

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

Author xmikex902x ( ago)
"My way of viewing it must be the only way"...he's mocking ppl by saying that, yet he completely contradicts himself by telling the guy who submitted that question that it wasn't a 10-10 round for sure. This dude is so annoying Idk why I listen.

missing weight is just pure lazyness. I wrestled all through high school and college and had to make weight hundreds of times and didnt miss weight. I would cut 20 to 30 pounds too.

Author Leviathan I ( ago)
So the 'app' idea is dumb but what if fighters were simply weighed whenever USADA randomly drug tested them? It wouldn't be any extra burden on the fighter and I imagine logistically not too difficult to put in place.

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.

Author JohnMcKoon ( ago)
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.

And I'll take an IQ test against Luke and I'll not sleep for 2 days first and embarrass him. Please. He thinks he's smart and I know he's not.

Author Jason Baldini ( ago)
I challenge you Luke to a debate about a 10 / 10 and I can prove if I'll argue both sides showing the draw is right. I will destroy you and if I can't beat you Luke I'll delete all my social media accounts, delete. But that won't happen because I'll delete you.

Author Jason Baldini ( ago)
Guys Luke isn't smart, at all. We can prove a 10/10 easily and we can make small adjustments to add action and keep a 10/10.

Anyone who is against a 10/10 is showing you they have a very limited processing capability in their brain, they're dummies. Maybe dummies on the smarter side but dummies otherwise. I'm convinced Luke is dumb as hell.
Fights aren't scored as a fight but each round a separate fight. People like this dumb ass Luke Thomas they see a close round and I mean like as close as you can get with the exception of no action, and they flip a coin to give a 10/9. A 10/9 means someone won, they didn't dominate but they won, for sure. Most judges get it wrong and it will change someday and I'll be seen as right and this homeless looking bastard will hopefully shut up by then.

I think weight cutting is a problem in mma culture. Unless we change that culture it will always be an issue. We can begin to eliminate weight cutting by shaming fighters who cut a lot of weight.

Author John Holmes ( ago)
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.

People were talking about "What if Conor ended up at Bellator?"
