This isn't in response to any specific fight, but I have always felt that OC is not a good criteria to score fights. Im speaking more of the stand-up game as opposed to grappling. If some LnP type guy pins his opponent down for the whole fight he is rewarded for octagon control. In this instance he did control the ring, but what is really important is that he controlled the other guy with his grappling. So lets give him the credit for that even if it is boring and useless. As far as the stand-up goes, i dont think it should matter if you are moving forward or backwards. Leben vs Silva comes to mind. Chris was very aggressive and moving forward, but we all saw what Silva did backing up. My point is that agression and octagon control were on Lebens side, but were totally worthless as far as scoring. I dont care if a guy is moving forward or backward, in the center of the ring or back against the cage. What really matters is who is striking and grappling the most effectively. Do you think this is a worthwhile criteria? Yes or no? Why or why not?
