Hey BE, I haven't contributed anything here in a while and figured I would share the latest installment of our site's Verdict series with you, as it has generated some really interesting discussion within our community. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the series, basically three of the writers at FightLockdown score a controversially scored bout and breakdown the rationale behind scoring each round the way we did. At the end, we compare our scorecards with the official judges scorecards and try to draw noteworthy distinctions.

Please contribute your thoughts below, as I appreciate the wealth of knowledge this community holds. I look forward to reading your criticisms/scorecards below! All the best in 2011.

 

This past weekend, we brought in the New Year with a highly entertaining lightweight fight that was decided by a controversial decision. Gray Maynard/Frankie Edgar 2 was a much better contest than most had expected it to be, which made it enjoyable to watch, but a challenge to score. Enter FLD’s part-time MMA judges, Miles HackettJack Barrington, and Brad Taschuk, who will welcome 2011 with the third installment of our highly vaunted FightLockdown Verdict. Read over their scorecards and decide for yourself which writer’s verdict you agree with most, after the break!
