Second of all, the judges don't create the "ambiguous criteria" you speak of, they interpret them. Yes they do make choices most people would disagree with fairly often but this is a much bigger problem then judges simply pulling ambiguous criteria out of their asses.
and lastly, what do you mean by fighters who show mercy and don't go for the kill. Are you referring to guys who lay and pray? or are you referring to guys who hurt their opponents but don't go for finish out of pity? if it's the latter (which is what your wording sounds like) i'd love some examples.
Also, personally i could care less about the production changing, the fighters creating or not creating animosity to sell fights and the whole "mma is becoming too entertainment based, it's not pure anymore" thing so long as the fights themselves are still good. If you don't like all the fluff then don't watch all the interviews and stick to only watching the fights. No one's forcing you to watch the press conference and read fighter tweets. Just buy the fucking pay per views or log on to linker on fight night, watch the fights and ignore everything else.

who has gsp beaten? seriously
sonnen couldnt beat silva on roids, thinks he can now? why?
When I read your OP here I thought... I like this guy. After this one, now I know I like you.
How funny, because I feel the complete opposite about the two of you now.

But seriously, I didn't know all those fights were fixed. That sucks.
