I see OPs point about saying you thinking a fight should have been a split is retarded. Oftentimes, though, a fight ends and you simply go "i bet thats gonna be a split, it was soooo close" which is different.

Yeah, I do that. What me and my group do is say stuff like, "I think it was 29-28 fighter A, but I can see where someone would give 29-28 fighter B".

Sometimes fights are close and considering we have all watched hundreds of decisions, unanimous and split, we can tell what type of fights might end up splits. Phone Post

Just wiki'd that shit =)


Judges' Decision: Depending on scoring, a match may end as:
unanimous decision (all three judges score a win for fighter A)
majority decision (two judges score a win for fighter A, one judge scores a draw)
split decision (two judges score a win for fighter A, one judge scores a win for fighter B)
unanimous draw (all three judges score a draw)
majority draw (two judges score a draw, one judge scoring a win)
split draw (one judge scores a win for fighter A, one judge scores a win for fighter B, and one judge scores a draw)

There are far too many split decisions. A split decision is an unacceptable result. Most of them are due to poor judging, but some are just because the stupid judges don't know how to score a round even, and 3 rounds is too few for some fights.

 I seem to remember Fitch saying post-fight after BJ Penn that he thought he "deserved a split decision"

Am I remembering that correctly?

Do Juries make split decisions with respect to trials? No
(forgive my ignorance if I'm wrong).

I agree with OP. if its not unanimous, than what could it be with certainty? Nothing! Phone Post

Dude I heard that and shook my head. What kind of mentality is that? If that's how he felt, then it would imply he have an idea of which judges (2 of the 3) score in his favour. Because If he didn't.....
then that is for him to say "uh we'll I don't know, how about this judge and uhhhh that judge"

Seems completely retarded. Phone Post

Eric Bloodaxe - Never got people predicting split decisions for future fights. I get that they expect a close fight, but predicting that one judge will see it different than the others is becoming more of a random guess.


Same. I hate thats an option on mmaplayground that I've been playing for years, seems like you should get an extra point for predicting there will be one dumbass, or perhaps 2 dumbasses.

ufc98newb - Saying it could be a split decision and saying it should be a split decision are two different things..that is for the guy talking about the reality of three people having three different opinions.

Saying a fight should be a split decision is clearly retarded. On the other hand, I think it is perfectly reasonable to predict a split decision before the scorecards are read, as it is a pretty decent bet that a close that is perceived to be close will be scored differently by three judges. I only bring this up because I have seen many posters get flamed for predicting a split decision, which seems pretty legit to me when two fighters are evenly matched, with neither having a penchant for finishing.........


not sure you get it either.

The judges can all three score it differently and it still be a unanimous decision. As long as they all pick the same winner, it doesn't matter what the scores are. It's still a unanimous decision.

By way of unanimous decision, this thread is approved by the UG.

Should've been split. No way was that shit unanimous!

 I have had to point this out on a regular basis for over a decade lol!

It usually goes like, "I think he won but it shouldn't have been unanimous, it was a close fight, it should have been a split decision in my opinion". 
Then I ask, "So you think one of the judges should have scored it like he lost? If all three judges think that he won a close fight, like you think, that would still make the decision unanimous."

whenever i say "that should have been a split decision" I'm typically just using that mean....how can i have seen the fight so differently than all 3 judges...and disappointed that not a single judge interpreted things the way i did.
