Joe Rogan believes Carla Esparza’s title-winning performance against Rose Namajunas at UFC 274 is proof that the scoring system in MMA needs changing. Esparza (19-6 MMA, 10-4 UFC)  dethroned Namajunas   (11-5 MMA, 9-4 UFC) last month to capture the strawweight title in a razor-close but lackluster affair that left many people confused on how to score the fight. Pat Barry, who was in Namajunas’ corner, encouraged her to keep going with her exact game plan as the fight unfolded. Little did he know that judge Rick Winter had Esparza winning the first four rounds and judge Brad Frank had her winning the first three of four, which gave Esparza the split decision.
