Rant With Us: MMA Judging

Now I love MMA and I’m not one to complain, but the current scoring system is encouraging fighters to engage in what are essentially kickboxing bouts. Very little credit is given to fighters who are dangerous off their backs or even those who engage in clinching and dirty boxing. Refs seem to be in on it too and are far too quick to separate fighters who are “not working”. With an audience who is much better informed about grappling sports than ever, these steps to keep fights standing are unwarranted and unnecessary.
