As far as the original suggestion, if anything were to be changed I would make majority decision separate so there are 3 choices: UD, MD, SD. UFC already does this in their fantasy game.
Majority Decision has no place in the game, in my opinion. Dating back to UFC 70 (3+ years), there have been a total of 5 in the UFC.
UFC 113 - Hendricks/Grant
UFC 109 - Hague/Tuchscherer
UFC 107 - Struve/Buentello
UFN Burkman vs. Swick - Burkman/Swick
UFC 70 - Kongo/Silva
That, to me, is proof that there is absolutely no skill in picking a Majority Decision. If you were to pick that as the outcome, you did it on sole luck. If you add Majority Decisions to the fantasy game, you may as well add No Contests and Disqualifications, in my opinion.
I personally think it's fine the way it is. I wouldn't argue with giving a +2 bonus for picking a Split Decision, but again...picking a SD and getting it right, in my opinion, is done mostly on luck and not knowledge/skill.
