Mousasi and Jardine fight to a draw in bloody battle

by Michael David Smith | source:

As almost everyone expected, Gegard Mousasi bloodied and battered Keith Jardine on Saturday night's Strikeforce card. But as almost no one expected, Jardine showed a tremendous amount of toughness, Mousasi had a point deducted for an illegal kick, and the result was a majority draw.

It was a mess of a fight, with Jardine's face becoming a bloody mess and the referee calling a halt to the action three separate times: Once for an illegal kick, once for a low blow and once because Mousasi's mouthpiece fell out. One judge scored the fight 29-27 for Mousasi, but two judges scored it a 28-28 tie.

Moussasi won that fight -- except under the Unified rules, which it is crazy that you can get a take down, do nothing with it, and win the round even though you were destroyed in striking.

There is nothing wrong with the 10-point must system if used correctly. There is a difference between winning a round and winning it decisively. Also landing a couple of blows more than your opponent or scoring a couple of meaningless takedowns is not enough to win you the round. We need more 10-10's and 10-8'sI had it9-910-9 - Moussasi10-8 - Moussasi29-26 Moussasi

That was just bullshit.Who the hell signed off that dimebag darrell looking mofo? In a pro mma bout they go and hire someone like this.Mousasi beat Jardine up so easily. The takedowns amounted to nothing.Time for a new judging system as mentioned.
