Seriously how is this a factor? I can see if the fight has little to no action but as far as scoring it should rank slightly above remaining conscious. If by controlling the center of the octagon you're winning a fight but the opponent's strategy was to stick and move, how does that make sense? I know the narrative to be the champ you have to beat him well for 3 and a half rounds reyes beat the brakes off the dude. Yet 2 uncompleted TDs and standing front and center won him the fight? It definitely wasn't striking because he was on the wrong side of that shit. Latifi lost because I'm assuming he didn't work from the TDs but at least he completed and controlled from that position, jon did not. Fairly debatable those were even really TDs let alone scorable as such. So octagon control was obviously a deciding factor in this but it's a worthless point in a fight were you're clearly being clubbed trying to hold that position. One dude walked away looking like a hundred bucks the other walked away looking like he walked through Chernobyl.
