It's based on the fact that UFC contests are (supposedly) judged on effective Striking, Grappling, Aggression & Octagon Control. I tried to break up each category into easily understandable & decipherable sections.

yeah, it makes no sense using the boxing scoring system. Pride had the best scoring system IMO

None existent ones? lol

Pride didn't really have a system, so sometimes it was a little strange.

this is why i liked theirs better:

Differences from the Unified Rules of Combat


Pride's rules differed from the Unified Rules of Combat in the following ways:

Pride allows kicking and kneeing the head of a downed opponent who is on his back. This is considered a foul in the Unified Rules, which only allows kicks and knees to the head of a standing opponent.

Pride allows a fighter to stomp the head of a downed opponent. This is considered a foul in the Unified Rules.

Pride allows a fighter to Spike (piledriver) an opponent. This is considered a foul in the Unified Rules.

Pride does not allow elbow strikes to the head of an opponent. The Unified rules allows elbows provided they are not striking directly down with the point of the elbow.

Pride's matches include a ten minute first round, with two minute rest periods. The Unified rules allow rounds no longer than five minutes, with rest periods not exceeding one minute.

Pride's matches are not judged on the ten point must system, rather judges score the whole fight. The Unified rules call for all matches to be judged using the ten point must system.

A problem with that is that backing up can be effective strategy. Look at Chuck and Lyoto for example..

Granted you could say that is a chance you take if it goes to the judges..

Disqualification

A "warning" will be given in the form of a yellow card or a green card (The green card gives a 10% deduction of a fighters purse) when a fighter commits an illegal action or does not follow the referee's instruction. Three warnings will result in a disqualification.

A fighter will be disqualified if a match is stopped on advice of the ring doctor as a result of his deliberate illegal actions.

The application of oil, ointment, spray, Vaseline, massaging cream, hair cream, or any other substances to any part of the fighter's body before and during the fights is prohibited. The discovery of any of these substances will result in a disqualification

Yeah, I realized that as I posted the sheet. Like I said, I made it awhile ago (early in my education!), so I wasn't as familiar with countering, etc.

I just dont' see it... GSP was faster, better conditioned, had better strikes and basically dominated the entire fight.... if BJ was half of what his fans say I wouldn't have thought a little Vaseline would have been the difference in the fight............
this has already been discussed, Ch8uck...It doesn't matyter if it made that much difference in the fight, the point is, ist happened anyways, it is wrong, and either intentional or accidnental, it shouldn't be happening, PERIOD!!!!
