Fightmetric Rules Rampage-Machida A Draw, But Machida Was Far More Effective

To support my point that Rampage-Machida exemplifies why the 10-point must system fails in MMA, here’s the fight’s Fightmetric report with some interesting data. According to their calculations the fight should have been scored a 29-29 draw using the 10-point must system, but Machida was clearly the more effective fighter down the stretch and should have been awarded the decision.

I suppose that’s karma for you though. Now Machida knows what’s its like to be on the losing end of a decision he deserved to win.
