â€œWhen it was over I knew that they were going to give it to him for sure because he had the top position and thatâ€™s the way the judging goes,â€ Diaz told Scrap Pack Radio.
â€œI think the scoring should be like, say a guy gets a takedown, it should count for a takedown for sure. What is a takedown in wrestling, two points? In a grappling match itâ€™s two points, so he gets a takedown,â€ said Diaz. â€œBut if he takes you down and lands in your closed guard and gets punched in the head forty times, is he still ahead on points?â€
â€œThereâ€™s round-winners and thereâ€™s fighters. You know, but in order to be a good UFC fighter or cage fighter I guess Iâ€™ve got to learn how to win the rounds,â€ said Diaz. â€œYouâ€™ve got to not fight. Thatâ€™s what Iâ€™m saying. Youâ€™ve got to score,â€ commented Diaz. â€œApparently Iâ€™ve got to grab him and hold him, otherwise heâ€™ll just grab and hold me.â€œ
â€œEverybody is like, â€˜you need to work on your wrestling,â€™ added Diaz. â€œMaybe I donâ€™t need to work on my wrestling. Maybe I just need to do the wrestling and not the fighting.â€ [Heavy]
Is wrestling and control given to high of value when judging a round?
