The same is true here with Maia. He dominated positional control, that's it. Did not come remotely close to finishing the fight and scored zero damage due to strikes.

I get that part, but I wanted you to expand on "That is if Fitch did his normal Fitching and laid on Maia for 3 rounds".

Really there is nothing to expand on. I think you are over-reading into my comment. Fitch often top controls people to a boring degree, my meaning is if he did that to Maia (hypothetical) and also didn't strike attempt subs etc.

I am not referring to any specific Fitch fight, rather his general fight methodology.

This.

I have no idea why that fight wasn't a 30-26, at worst, for Maia's performance.

With no damage done from strikes over the course of the fight, the rounds can't really be scored 10-8.
