After watching the horribly boring Evans vs. Silva fight I knew that Rashad would win but I was wondering why. All he did in my estimation was get takedowns. He did no damage from the top or in his stand up game. Granted Silva did even less mostly because Rashad did not want to fight rather he wanted to win a takedown contest. I dont believe that takedowns should win you a fight if you do nothing once you have sucured a takedown. To me it is stalling or working for a stalemate rather than trying to win. Is there any solution to keep this from happening, what kind of penalties could be enforced, or should there be a legit time limit if the ref does not see any offense being mounted to stand the fighter up again.
Does it bother anyone else that someone can win fights based on their takedown ability?
