Octagon control is such a stupid concept

Why would you say someone plodding forward eating counter shots is controlling anything ?

Eating more punches coming in than you are landing shows that effectively you are the one being controlled.

When I watched condit Diaz, by definition Diaz had octagon control. End of the night Diaz ate more shots then he dealt out and was extremely frustrated tho.
I could not give Diaz extra points for chasing his opponent. Phone Post

. I thought Machida "ran" a lot and refused to engage. Henderson stocked him like a lion in the rough. Hendo also out struck Machida 53-28 or so. I scored the fight 29-28 Henderson Phone Post

Actually I think you just don't understand the concept because your definition of octagon control leaves a lot to be desired. Phone Post

Control? Hendo just lurched around while being completely controlled. Control is a lot more than coming forward.

Why can't anybody understand this?
Just because you are moving forward does NOT mean you have control of where the fight goes. Judges have that discretion when judging a fight and they made the right call this time. He spent most of the fight landing half ass leg kicks and swinging at air. In no way, shape or form should aggression outweigh significant strikes or damage. Phone Post

The equivalent of not understanding or caring for a fighter who shows elusive movement and precise counter striking , is the same as somebody not understanding or caring for an active guard from the bottom, that is actually getting the better of the guy on top. Phone Post
