I think the concept of octagon control via top position or keeping someone pinned against the cage is the main problem. Would it be so awful if we threw out octagon control and went entirely with effective striking, perceived damage, and attempted submissions?

As it is, it's far too easy (and increasingly more common) for a wrestler to win via "octagon control" while making the fight boring, inflicting virtually no damage, and running out the clock on fighters who are trying to engage.
