Another year has come and gone, and once again it was Sal D'Amato who tops the year's list of the busiest UFC judges. D'Amato also led this list in 2013, 2015 and 2017.

In second place is another stalwart on the UFC judging scene, Chris Lee, who submitted completed scorecards in 59 UFC decisions in 2018.

Rounding out the podium is Derek Cleary, who remains a cageside fixture at UFC events. 2016's busiest judge tallied a total of 44 UFC scorecards in 2018.

Last year's second busiest judge, Jeff Mullen, did not record a scorecard tracked on MMAdecisions.com in 2018.

New to the top 10 list in 2018 were American west coast judges Dave Hagen and Michael Bell, plus Brazilian judges Guilherme Bravo, none of whom had made the list previously. Also added to the list in 2018 were veterans Glenn Trowbridge and Douglas Crosby.

In addition to Mullen, those dropping off the list in 2018 were British judge Ben Cartlidge and Paul Sutherland, plus American east coast judge Eric Colón.
