I recall a day when the ufc had more finishes than decisions.
They really need to bring back dates in force.
Any round “without Dominance on one side” she be a draw.
This would lead to many more draws in the ufc but when we saw guys with ufc
Records of 1-1-5 they’d get cut.
This would force fighters to go for the finish.
And they should get rid of FOTN awards & just split yhat $ between any fight than finished.
Finally get rid on contracts with like 25k to fight 25k to win.
That encourage stalling.
They need like 25k to fight.
40k to finish.

They need all this and more ASAP or decisions will kill this sport.
The last few months the vast majority of fights are decisions and the ufc is rewarding it

Oh man, that was as illegal a shot as you'll see. What was he thinking there! He deserves that DQ and whatever else might come.
