    I only linked to fightmetrics in order to give statistics about that fight. Most would think you were exaggerating if you said someone landed over 100 strikes from the guard.

    I don't think Bas won, and I think Rashad won.

    The only reason I posted this topic was because a lot of people have been complaining about the Evans vs. Thiago fight.

    They are saying (in the more obnoxious mma forums) that Rashad should not have won, and that his takedowns didn't deserve to win points.

    I posed this question as an extreme version of their stance on takedowns and scoring. Randleman won against Bas, but if you want to change judges decision, saying takedowns down earn points, than you would have decisions like the one for Bas more often.

    It's kind of rare to see because you have to have a good wrestler that can repeatedly take someone down but can't do anything on the ground because the other guy is neutralizing him (no GnP) and standing back up easily every time he gets taken down.
    I think there should be a staggered scoring system for takedowns. At some point, it's a stalling mechanism, like holding someone against the fence, it doesn't deserve points.

    Might wanna back that up, you're not exactly someone with authority.
