Elvis Mutapcic has only needed input from the judges five times over the course of his 16-fight career. He doesn’t have a ton of experience going the distance, but if there’s one thing he does know, he says it’s that no fight is ever completely even.

I couldn't disagree with him more. I think many rounds are too tough to call and that the judges need to utilize the 10-10 option much more frequently. It may actually solve some of the scoring problems that are rampant in MMA. It would create more ties though but I actually think that there needs to be more ties as well. Many fights have no clear winner or loser. Bad or foolish scoring by the judges can ruin a fighters record and it can ultimately ruin their career. However if you're Diego Sanchez or Benson Henderson bad judging seems to work in your favor. In all seriousness I would love to see more 10-10 rounds.

I disagree with his statement. I think 10-10 rounds will make The sport more exciting. It would forceguys to be aggressive and go for The kill more often. No clear winner. Tie. Simple.
