Woodley definitely had the more damaging blows, but nothing ever really stopped Shields for long. As for Octagon control you have to give that to Shields, because almost everything that happened in that fight was because of Shields. Woodley only attacked a few times.

This is sadly kinda true.

The rules don't even matter anymore, nor do the now(thanks to the ABC) clearly defined scoring criteria described in the Unified Rules of MMA.

All that matters is the casuals screaming about high ineffective volume, walking forward, and holding dudes against the fence.

I have a a hard time being upset by it though because anyone who could actually lose to such an ineffective display of fighting probably doesn't deserve to win anyway.
