How fights are scored
Fights are scored via a round by round basis based on action,technical variety,competitiveness and shock value which will be explained in detail below.
The total score of all criteria will be 15 points per round. The final score will be – [Total judges score/(number of rounds x15)] x 5 rounded up or down to the nearest .5
A finish within rounds will be awarded with an extra .5 star, reason being, a fight of the same quality would be more entertaining with a finish rather than a decision.
The .5 star finish rule will also allow fights to be rated with a 5.5 star rating
Blatant fouls are to be awarded -1 point per round.
A judge scored 7 points for each round for a fight that ends in a decision.
Total score will be (21/45)*5 = 2.5 stars
A judge scored 7 points for each round for a fight that ends in a 2nd round KO
Total score will be [(14/30)*5] + .5 stars = 3 stars
Action is defined by the quantity and quality of the action in the fight.
Action should not be judged by technical quality.
Stalling like lay and pray, cage grind, clinching for long periods without striking and refusing to engage should be awarded with low points.
Duration of fights that is not sufficient to determine the quantity or quality of action in the fight such as Conor 13 seconds KO win over Aldo should be awarded with 0 points
2) Technical Variety
Technical Variety criteria should be judged by technical quality in both offense and defense from both fighters
“”Throwing technique out the window”” fights such as the brawl between Don Frye vs Takayama should be awarded with 1 point.
“”1 technique un-countered”” fights such as JDS body jab fest over ben rothwell should be awarded with 1 point.”
Technical Variety is to be judged in every department, fights that didn’t go to the ground or fights that only stay on the feet are still eligible to be awarded the full 3 points.
Duration of fights that is not sufficient to determine the technical variety in the fight such as Conor 13 seconds KO win over Aldo should be awarded with 0 points
An easy guide would be:
a 10-8 round should be awarded 0-1 points
a 10-9 round should be awarded 1-2 points
Rounds that are hard or near impossible to score according to mma judging should be awarded 3 points
Duration of fights that is not sufficient to determine the competitiveness of the fight such as Conor 13 seconds KO win over Aldo should be awarded with 0 points
4) Shock value aka The Ronda Rousey Shock Meter
Shock Value is defined by expectations vs result and the reference to Ronda Rousey during her title reign would be a perfect example
There would be zero shock value if Ronda wins with an armbar but it would definitely be shocking if Ronda loses via an armbar
Shock Value should also be awarded for special or unique moments(inclusive of momentum change) in the particular round and it is not restricted to fighting techniques, e.g Rory Lawler Epic Staredown
Shock Value is given 6 points per round.
The MMA Latest Fight Ratings system is still in its trial phase so feedbacks and criticism are welcomed.
Exclusive: Derek Brunson: “Anderson was definitely a little lubed up”
Derek Brunson fought Anderson Silva back in February of this year, at UFC 208. Brunson would go on to lose the fight by controversial unanimous decision. However, the controversies didn’t stop at the questionable decision, Brunson also claims Silva was greasing during the fight. The Wilmington, North Carolina native, posted about it on Twitter a few days ago:
Just make sure you don’t put cooking oil all over your body like Anderson did so it’ll be easy to grab ahold of you @lyotomachidafw 👌
— Derek Brunson (@DerekBrunson) October 17, 2017
Speaking with MMA Latest, Brunson explained why he believes Silva was greasing during the fight. “Anderson was definitely a little lubed up. Every time I grabbed him he was just slipping out of everything, and his takedown defense was really good that night. I was definitely curious to know why he was very slippery, which I definitely think he had some kind of substance on his body. He knows I’m a wrestler obviously, he’s an old, savvy veteran, so he was definitely trying to play all the rules and be very strategic, and make it harder for a wrestler to grab him.”
Brunson is set to face Lyoto Machida come October 28, when asked about whether he was worried about Machida greasing, considering Gegard Mousasi accused him of doing so in their fight, Brunson admitted he wasn’t too worried.
“Well I’m not too worried, but like I said, I put it out there because I know they’re friends and I know, obviously, that’s kind of what the guys do when they know they’re fighting a wrestler. They want to lube their body up really good to make it hard to grab hold, Anderson did a great job defending my takedowns. It’s because he was all greased up so he was able to stop a lot of them. When I grab guys in the clinch, it’s very tough for them to get away and I’m pretty good with my Greco takedown. He was pretty much pulling through my clinch when I had a tight grip on him and if you have some kind of substance on your body it’s easy to pull them.”
Neither Silva nor his management have commented on the greasing allegations. Anderson Silva makes his return against Kelvin Gastelum later this year, in China. While Brunson makes his return to the Octagon on October 28th, in Brazil, where he looks to add Lyoto Machida’s name to his impressive list of victories.
Ovince Saint Preux Steps in to Face Corey Anderson at UFC 217
UFC 217 just got even more interesting. Earlier this week, Patrick Cummins pulled out of his light heavyweight matchup with Corey Anderson due to a Staph infection. Corey “Overtime” Anderson was not happy with his opponents decision, even calling out his opponent on Instagram asking how Cummins could, “call it quits so far from fight night”.
The UFC left Anderson on the card, and he found an opponent through the magic of Twitter. Ovince Saint Preux tweeted out directly to Anderson stating:

It didn’t take long for Anderson to respond agreeing to the fight, tagging Mick Maynard and Dana White in his response.
Only a few short hours later, the fight announcement came from the official UFC twitter account.
Fight News update!!

This top 10 Light Heavyweight matchup should add to an already amazing card coming in November at Madison Square Garden. Saint Preux is coming off of back to back wins both due to the very rare von flue choke, he finds himself ranked #7th in the latest edition of the 205-pound rankings. Corey “Overtime” Anderson is 4-2 in his last 6 fights, but is coming off a brutal first round knockout loss to Jimi Manuwa in March.
With such a exciting fight added to this card, what do you see happening November 4th? Will Corey Anderson bounce back and look to jump into the top 5 of the rankings, or will Ovince Saint Preux go for a third straight von flue choke? Let us know.
