We should just agree that if the fighter on the bottom has a solid guard and he is making it so the top fighter is locked down for ~5 seconds (or however long it takes to demonstrate control) then the fight gets stood up. In no other position should the fight ever be stood up.
That will solve the problem of lay and pray and the problem of the ref's discretion. Boom.
