Takedowns should NEVER count for anything... if you land strikes or a sub attempt once on the ground you have the advantage and win the exchange and thus possibly the round. But, just a takedown with nothing else is meaningless.
What if someone pulls guard?? Do they get credit for a takedown?? What about defending a takedown? You dictated where the fight was just as much as someone performing a takedown? Do you win the round based on that? What about establishing control of the center of the Octagon, does that "count"?
