He was attempting to mount an offense and failing. You don't score a goal by missing the net.
You are pretty delusional if you think Machida was controlling and going for the finish in the first two rounds. He spent most of those rounds running away, not committing to his strikes, being cut off, and being pressed up against the cage. He can get awarded one of those rounds if you don't score aggression and hugging against the cage but by no means was he outclassing Page in the standup.
A goal would be the actual submission victory. Trying to shoot a goal more than the other team, makes the team who tries the winner 90% of the time. Because they are not just defending but actually trying! Which in a fight should score the same way as it does anywhere else.
Machida landed the much more cleaner striker and outsriked Rampage in those first two rounds. All Rampage had going for him was agression and octagon control.
Thats why a fight should be scored as a WHOLE! Leaves no doupt in anybody's mind that Machida was the far superior fighter that night.
Even if the first two rounds very close!
