So should not being knocked out by a punch be as valuable as throwing one? Should escaping a submission be worth as much as applying one? I couldn't disagree more with you.

That said, I don't see why everyone is raving about Rashad's wrestling, sure his takedowns looked fairly good but his top control was crap, Thiago was basically able to stand up at will, personally I don't think Rashad looked that good on the ground.
