Instead of spamming the boards everytime I see some cool news, I’ll post it here. I’ll also keep track of prospects I like, new signings to ufc/dwcs/Bellator/etc.

Joselyn Edwards vs Ailin Perez has been booked for 302. Hard to get excited for a fight like that but, these two do have bad beef so maybe we get a good fight out of it

Dana did say he was planning a mid card fight and the main event. You think it's Alex pereira vs Aspinall in the main event and izzy vs either chimaev or ddp between the gaethje and weili fights on the main card?

Wonder if the Chiesa tweets will end up being a Chiesa vs Felder fight announcement for 300 and not Main Event related

https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2024/02/ufc-fight-night-236-news-video-max-griffin-opinion-judge-sal-damato-hates-me-split-decision-mma-judging

This comment from Griffin is interesting. I do find that Sal D'Amato is involved in a ridiculous amount of split decisions, especially main events. Either him or Derek Cleary always seem to be involved in a controversial scorecard. However, it seems to me that D'Amato is actually a pretty good judge and scoring the fight correctly more often than not, at least IMO.

This is not an exhaustive list, but this is a list of more recent split decisions where D'Amato was one of the judges. This is just main events; there could be more.

Strickland vs. DDP
Albazi vs. KKF
Vieira vs. Holm
Emmett vs. Kattar
Sandhagen vs. Vera
Cannonier vs. Strickland
***Ankalaev vs. Blachwoicz (split draw where D'Amato was the only one who scored it a draw)
Tsarukyan vs. Gamrot
Sandhagen vs. Dillashaw

This goes all the way back to at least summer of 2021. For anyone that's curious,Derek Clearywas also a judge on all of the fights that are bolded. The more I look at this list and who the fight was scored for, the more convinced I am that D'Amato might be one of the better judges in MMA. 

Him constantly being involved in splits could mean that the rest of the pool of judges is that poor. It could also highlight that commissions understand how some of these judges view fights and purposely try to group some of them together to get a more diversified view of how the fight occurred and thus should be scored.

Ok, maybe the most interesting finding from the above is actually that out of the 5 main events that Cleary and D'Amato scored together, they've never agreed on what they saw once. Not one time. 

If you see these two together for a main event and don't foresee a finish, there's a good chance that fight will be a split decision based off of how these two judges view and score fights.

MagicM on Twitter said alex topuria is in fact signed with the ufc. He has sources to the ufc and has leaked many main events before so I believe him

Also I said in the 298 thread but it appears kopylov vs fluffy may be off. Seen lots of people on Twitter saying they had voided bets for that fight, so we will have to see if it is true

Big 300 update 

Ariel says on mma hour that he believes the top choice for 300 is Leon vs Chimaev. The delay is (shocker) chimaevs visa. Other options are ddp izzy, ddp chimaev, and belal leon as last resort
