Jesus Christ, how far back does he want to wind his hook up? lol, fucking hero.

But I think it's hard to pinpoint how to score damage vs activity. Take Rd 4 of Jones vs Gus for example. Jones was getting whooped that round but that one elbow followed up by a few strikes that hurt Gus won him the round. In that case, damage was scored more favourably.

It's hard to compare one fight to the other. Aldo vs Edgar was a clear victory for Aldo. Anyway Damage is not a criteria no matter how much Dana White wants it to be. Effective striking is the criteria and what is effective os very subjective. Very ineffective grazing punches can cause cuts that would be interprired as damage. Although all the damage is purely cosmetic. The concussive blows that land solid and whip the opponents head and make their ears wiggle and their jaw jut off to the side are more effective though visual damage post strike is often not there.
Damage - physical harm caused to something in such a way as to impair its value, usefulness, or normal function.
Are you really arguing that this is not a criteria in judging a fight?
