Joe Rogan Blasts 10 Point Must System In MMA
“Scoring is very flawed. It’s flawed in a bunch of different ways. The biggest reason it’s flawed is because of the 10-Point Must system which was adopted from boxing. That might work in a 12-round fight. 12, three minute rounds is very different than three, five minute rounds. Three, five minute rounds, you’re going 10-9 on rounds that either guy could win and then the next round a guy could get taken down, busted up, dropped, and you score that a 10-9 as well. That makes no f—ing sense. The system in place right now, the scoring system, is from boxing and they need to develop one just for MMA. “The (athletic commissions) don’t do s—. It’s the same reason this C.J. Ross lady is still a f—ng judge, or was a judge, until she stepped down. The athletic commissions do a woefully inadequate job on several levels. The UFC can’t dictate who judges. the UFC can’t dictate who referees. The UFC can’t dictate what the rules are. They can’t do anything. They can work with the commission to try to give suggestions and come up with ways around problems, but ultimately it’s the job of the athletic commission.”

All in the family: Sergio Pettis makes octagon debut at UFC 167
It was only this past week that Sergio Pettis told MMAjunkie.com Radio that he believed he was "ready to step up to the next level." That next level came quickly. Pettis (8-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC), the younger brother of UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, has signed with the UFC and will make his debut with the promotion in November. Sources close to the fighter confirmed his signing to MMAJunkie.com following an initial report from Combate. The Combate report said Pettis will make his UFC debut at UFC 167 as a bantamweight, moving up from his current flyweight home. While MMAjunkie.com could not immediately confirm the change in division, Pettis told MMAjunkie.com Radio this past week that he was considering a move up to bantamweight.
