You don't think if Anderson 'matrixed' a guy for a whole round, and popped him a couple times, that he'd probably win the round? Phone Post 3.0

Actually stuffing TDs , reversals and sweeps are all part of scoring right now. Under Effective Grapplong and Control.

Wierd how a green namer actually wouldnt know that....

The issue is the judges apparently dont know it either, but it is right there in the scoring criteria. Phone Post

Ten eight round - 
RockMeAmadeus - If stuffed takedowns, blocked punches and blocked subs actually scored points on planet dumbass, then i can see someone like GSP and greg jackson exploiting this so that a fighter never has to go on the offense and just defend everything to score a UD. Isn't it much easier to defend by blocking, stuffing, and back-pedaling than to actually land an OFFENSE??

While on planet dumbass.......Michael Bisbing = #1P4P KING + GOAT

I was with you till you mentioned Bisping.

Now i'm hoping a truck ploughs through you... Sorry. Phone Post

If either of you trained, you would know any Fool can run forward and attack.. BUT It takes skill and experience to build even an average Defense.

I reckon you missed the ABC removing the scoring reward for stuffed takedowns.

Is this true? Did the Unified Rules version get changed or just the ABC run commissions? Phone Post

Give it a fucking rest will you, not connecting with a strike is not the same as 2 men engaged in a grapping exchange were one wants to get the other down but fails to do so.Davis tried to get machida down 10 times , got him down twice , machida goes 1 for 1 in the takedowns.Thats 9 of 11 grappling exchanges that machida won. He also landed more significant strikes with greater accuracy.

30-27 machida.

missing or blocking a strike isnt the same as fending off a takedown by out grappling your opponent.

I dont think it should score but it.isnt the same.

Also we.get it, you like wrestlers. Phone Post

Machida can't run and attack.
He's exclusively a 'counter-striker'.... Also known as a 'wait-n-see'er'. Phone Post
Um have you ever seen his blitz style attacks? He has finished quite a few fights that way. He rushed davis the same way as well. He just picks and chooses the spots to do it much more carefully than everyone else. Phone Post

After the first round of Machida vs Davis I knew this fight was going to be controversial.

When you have two elusive guys, not landing a whole lot of clean shots, then you throw in the occasional takedown, there's going to be bitching on the UG about the decision

Davis definitely won the takedown per round contest. He managed to get takedowns in 2 of 3 rounds and seeing as we aren't scoring anything else, Davis definitely won. However, if are scoring things like striking and Octagon control, Davis lost.
