The BANG Effect: A Statistical Look at 2013's Most Improved MMA Team - DATABOMB
(cagepotato.com)
An unlikely new coaching star, Duane “Bang” Ludwig has surged to the forefront of the competitive MMA coaching landscape after a fortuitous change of scenery. Ludwig is the obvious candidate for 2013's “MMA Coach of the Year,” and few would question this, despite little fan awareness of his coaching prowess just one year ago. Ludwig certainly had a tough 2012 that included three consecutive UFC losses, each one by first-round stoppage, the last of which added a fight-ending and career-threatening knee injury to the insult. But almost immediately after beginning the lengthy rehabilitation process, Ludwig got an unexpected phone call from Urijah Faber, and the creator of the Bang Muay Thai system suddenly migrated from the suburbs of Denver, Colorado to Sacramento, California.

What can be done with MMA scoring?
(mmafighting.com)
In the three weeks since UFC 167, things went from irrational to pretty rational when it comes to talking about the judging, and if anything, the recent controversy opened a lot of eyes to the fact that judges themselves are handicapped to a degree by the system in place. The funny part of all of this is as much as the Georges St-Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks title match fueled the talk, is that it was another fight on that show, Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald, that was almost the perfect example of what is wrong with the ten-point must system. In that fight, virtually nothing happened in the first round. It was as close to a 10-10 round as you can get, but given that judges in 97 percent of the cases are going to call a round 10-9, that's what happened. As it turned out, Lawler got the benefit of the coin-toss round on two cards. The second round was clearly MacDonald's, but Lawler won the third with far more of a margin, including scoring a knockdown and doing most of the key damage in the fight...

Six years after near-fatal crash, Will Ribeiro finds peace with MMA judging and coaching
(mmafighting.com)
Will Ribeiro was a bantamweight prospect back in 2008, but his MMA career was prematurely stopped days after his second fight at World Extreme Cagefighting. Six years later, he still battles to live a normal life in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. With a 9-1 professional overall record -- which included five knockouts and two submissions -- Ribeiro signed with the WEC and fought former bantamweight champion Chase Beebe in his promotional debut on June 2008. He won the fight via split decision, and immediately broke into the top 10 of the division...
