I know there are a lot of you out there wishing someone would swoop in and TKO the 10pt must system into the next lifetime, but I don't think that's going to be happening anytime soon. Regarding Edgar/Maynard and Penn/Fitch as well as any other draws you'd like to include in the commentary, my question is, did any of these fights concluding in a draw have a clear winner in your mind, if you were to judge the fight using the Pride totality method?
The totality method had judges scoring the fighters not round by round, but on the overall merits of their performances in the fight as a whole, basing their judgment on standards similar to today; the effort made to finish the fight via KO or submission, damage given to the opponent, aggressiveness, etc.
I know the totality style isn't going to be making a surging comeback anytime soon, but what I'd like to hear is arguments for and against a win or loss in a judged draw, and what you saw, effort, technique, style-wise, that put one fighter over the top. There are complaints about what the judges give the most weight to in pointing a round one way or the other and I think it would be interesting to see what we give weight to as fans with a totally different view of the fight.
