Yes, but only slightly, and the scorecards should reflect that.

A lot of people think the current scoring system is the biggest problem with MMA. My wish is for a scoring system that would not only reflect who is actually winning the fight, but would also be educational for new fans and would elevate the level of skill in the cage. The ten point system fails at all of those things, being often confusing even to the judges themselves let alone to new fans, and tends to encourage gamesmanship over everything else. I donít think stand-ups would happen often, if at all, if the scoring system didnít reward stalling.
