Following the controversial judging at UFC 247 - Jon Jones vs. Dominick Reyes, James Krause vs. Trevin Giles, Andre Ewell vs. Jonathan Martinez - many fans, media members, fighters and others have offered suggested changes to judging and scoring to fix perceived problems.
Those proposed solutions include having five judges, open scoring, judging the fight as a whole, half-point systems and more.
The problem will all of the arguments for any of these solutions is that no one actually knows which solution would work. That's why as I argue in this video, the only way to know is for athletic commission and the UFC to experiment in territories where they self regulate. Without experimentation, it's impossible to know what could work.
