      The win was more than enough to leapfrog Khabib.

    • John N. says:

      Wow. Dos Anjos all the way to 2? Figured he’d go to 4 being that he just lost to Khabib 4 months ago who hasn’t lost since.

    • oleg says:

      I don’t think that winning 4 rounds and getting sumbitted in the fifth is anything like losing a split decision…

      The scores in a fight that was finished are not relevant.

    • jcs says:

      That’s the obvious solve, but how many % of bouts that end in a late-round KO/TKO would we have that info for?

    • Metcalf says:

      Personally, I would do it based upon judges and media scoring.

      For instance, Sonnen winning all 4 rounds on every medi outlet and judges score cards but getting submiited in the 5th.

      Khabilov won Rd 1 on everyone’s scorecards, but it was split the next two.

      Only about Half the media outlets had scored the fight for Khabilov ahd it been a 3 rounder…so I’m not sure if you would add points for thta. However, if it were like Sonnen/Silva 1 where its unanimously all for one guy and then the other guy pulls off a come from behind victory then you could treat it like a split decision almost.

    • jcs says:

      How do you objectively and consistently, register a TKO loss as being “close”?

    • IcyB says:

      Rustam really should go up, and Diego should not move. Your system gives points for quality performances right? Like having a close fight with a much higher ranked opponent. Considering Benson has only lost once (to the champion) since joining the UFC, and Rustam was, well, appropriately ranked at #18…I think the fact that it was such a close fight should give him points. He got finished yes, but if that were a 3 rounder, then he may have possibly won.

      I’m pretty sure you guys do give points based on quality performances.

      In the case of Diego, he won, so he gets some points…but it really has to be the least amount of points possible.

    • oleg says:

      Recommended daily Allowance?

      Rafael dos Anjos?

    • efagundes says:

      What is RdA?
