Dana Whites opinion on the half-point scoring system


How many times have you thought to yourself, I could do a better job judging this fight? Or what if this fight were judged like PRIDE was? Well spoke with Dana White about his opinions on judging today and his thoughts on the half-point system.

“We get into half-points? They better learn to count f—ing whole points before we get to half-points,” he said. “You put a half-a-point in there, holy s—, every f—ing card will be destroyed. It’s a bigger problem than half-points. And I don’t want to smash these guys, they accepted what they did and they were stand-up about it, but Jesus Christ, there’s three f—ing numbers. There’s 10s and 9s. If you can’t count 10s and 9s, let’s not throw f—ing fractions in there.”

This whole topic has been under such scrutiny lately with the horrible judging at recent UFC events.

What are your thoughts? How could judging be better in MMA?
