Miesha Tate knows there is inconsistency in scoring fights and thinks the whole process needs to be revamped. The UFC women’s bantamweight No. 1 contender would like to see more draws than scores that make no sense.
“I think there should be more draws,” said Tate during a World Tour Stop. “Sometimes I feel judges pick a winner where nobody clearly won or lost because they have to. There needs to be a definitive, ‘Yes this person won the fight and this person lost.’”
Starting in September, The Ultimate Fighter is back. The head coaches are Tate and champion Ronda Rousey, who trained both sexes this season.
Tate held the Strikeforce title before Rousey beat her for it. Like all of Rousey’s fights, it ended via armbar in round one. The title was later promoted to the UFC along with Rousey and Tate.
Their rematch is set as the co-main event of UFC 168 on December 28. The final UFC show of the year comes from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
