The scorecard from Edgar / Maynard

The official scorecard from the Edgar / Maynard 2 fight. Note the fact that the only one who got it ‘right’ (aka what we agree with) was a woman – Patricia Morse Jarman. Thus, I propose that we fire all male judges in Nevada, replacing them with Vegas dancers and bordello workers. Their uncanny ability to intuit if a customer is going to strangle them or not should allow them to pick winners better than Cecil Peoples ever could.

    Was I watching the wrong round 3? I could have sworn that they took alternating rounds. I ruled the fight a draw by 8-10, 10-9, 9-10, 10-9, 10-9. But this is feeling like Shogun/Machida judging all over again. Should I rewatch this fight or just wait for the rematch where “Shogun” KTFO Edgar?

  • Jemaleddin

    Wait – she didn’t get it right either. That should read:

    8 – 10
    10 – 9
    9 – 10
    10 – 9
    10 – 9

    No? Gray won the 3rd, not the 5th.

  • Rad_Brad

    Nice to see that they all scored it 8-10 for Rnd 1.

  • Oontyex

    it says something about the scoring system/ judging that none of them came to the same conclusion while watching the same fights and attempting to implement the same scoring criteria

  • mamoru

    Patricia Morse Jarman is an atrocious judge.

    For example, she’s the one who had Sanchez/Guida for Guida.
    So if the great purge ever happens, she shouldn’t be spared just because she doesn’t have a dick, she’s a complete incompetent.

    agrees with jameladdin, although when watching i thought the 3rd was 10-10
    i thought was
    8-10
    10-9
    10-10
    10-9
    10-9

  • Simco

    I had first and third for Gray.

  • Márcio

    10-7
    9-10
    10-9
    9-10
    9-10

    47-46 Gray, although I was rooting for Edgar if that first round wasn’t a 10-7 there’s no 10-7 rounds.

  • Jemaleddin

    For all practical purposes, there are no 10-7 rounds. We have to console ourselves with the fact that there are at least 3 judges in all of MMA who know that 10-8 rounds exist.

  • Nachtfalter

    I originally had the fight 47-47 (with Gray winning round 3 and of course the first 10-8). After watching the fight a second time, I would definitely give a 10-7 first round because the way I see it, if the round had ended a little after the first knockdown, it would have already been a 10-8 round and Gray continued to completely whoop Frankie’s ass after that, completely justifying the unicorn of MMA scores, the 10-7 round. But of course I don’t actually expect moronic Nevada judges to give out a 10-7 without Kalib Starnesesque weirdness involved.

    What worries me a lot more than the apparent unattainability of 10-7 rounds is that two judges saw the last round for Gray Maynard which is… well… wrong.

    just get rid of numbers in the scoring system and replace it with letter grades. A+ for Maynard in the first round, Edgar F- in the first round. It would make more sense. Or stars.

    Phoenix is on to something. These judges are so stuck to a boxing mindset that without a “scored knockdown”, they’re not willing to give a 7 or 8 round. The AC’s need to tell these guys to BE FUCKING LIBERAL w/the scores so we can stop having fights like Lawlor/Simpson where 1 guy almost dies in the 1st round.
