It wasn't. Silva didn't get knocked down, nor was he really wobbly. Fitch dominated most of the round and the mount was good, but it wasn't necessarily 10-8 worthy. Silva got out from under the mount due to his own effort, so it was right to not stop the fight. Fitch just didn't do any real damage.
