I was thinking of different kind of techniques to score rounds, when I thought, for now, keep the same scoring you see, but instead of 3 judges have 5. At first your like, its gonna be the system we have now. No its not. The point is not to change it, but upgrade the scoring of back and forth fights where your not sure which fighter is taking the fight or the round. Some of these past close fights where your not sure the right fighter won, doing it this way can mark that go tremendously higher. DasRy.
This wouldn't work. But your on the right track. because the decision of a round solely goes to 1 guy, when most of the time we see split decision, it's because judges see rounds differently.
ie. If a fighter does a takedown but does nothing but receive soft shots for the bottom, some judges will call it octagon control, others would call it for the strikes.
The real way to solve this scoring problem "which i really think there isn't"AND LISTEN CLOSELY CUZ YOU WILL AGREE
This would only be for championship fights. You take fighters. not just anyfighters. u make sure they didn't train, spare, work, or anything like that together. And you let them judge.
Also for example in Rampage Forrest, you get a Fighter who has fought both of them to judge also. In this case it would be Shogun.
And finally, I like the idea of 5 judges, but have them all working at the same time.
Plan B - Take 10 judges at random to judge every round of every fight, but randomly select 3 of the judges score cards to be the official scorings.

I don't think there's a scoring problem. When you're using humans, it's inevitable that it's not going to be perfect every time. But the percentage of fights that have the correct scoring FAR outweighs those that don't.
It's like an umpire that calls balls and strikes. There's going to be human error no matter how it's done.
IMO, educating the judges is the best route to take.
I fully agree, I really dont see a problem right now, except for stupid judges...
