Eh wtf fight were you watching. When Ortiz "took him down" Rashad got up without anything happening at all and relatively quickly. There was no dominating anything from either side, there was no knees or elbows from either side that were doing anything, all it would've taken was a take down to win that crappy round.
Either way it was a garbage fight and neither fighter is going to be a real factor now that all the new talent has arrived.
That is part of the way the UFC scores.
Evans was backing up the Entire First and Second round.
You only get points for Pushing a fight standing up , you dont get get points for back peddling.
You dont get points For getting up., you dont get points to staying on your back...You Get points for taking people down and staying on top when you are down.
It does not matter if you were on your Back 15 seconds or 4 mins.....you were on your back and that his how the fight is scored.
The only way to over come that is to be in a superior Position LONGER and out work your opponet
Ortiz Pushed the Second round standing up with Punches and Kicks constantly moving forward.
Evans Retreated the second round.
Ortiz Controled the Clinch with the Plum, using his knees and elbows, He used at least ONE double leg take down succesfully
Evans Tried for one leg and two leg takedowns that did not work.
Ortiz was on top striking when he was on the ground OR throwing Submissions from Guard on bottom.
Evans spent his bottom time not attacking and looking for right his posture.
I dont like Ortiz.....but He won the second round and it was a Fair second round Draw when he lost the point.
