@BonGamin
I can't take you serious giving gane that fight with your account named after gane.

Haha nah bro it all comes down to the fifth. You can score it for Francis because of the sweep & top control but.. He won the second half of this round, Ciryl won the first half. Who did more damage, who actually tried to finish the fight? Gane! Of course, he wasn't close to do so but at least his actions had potential of finishing the fight. And I don't know if reversal is more important than the takedown. He also landed a couple good shots on the feet, especially elbow was pretty hard. But according to the rules, you shouldn't score the top control unless effective grappling/striking/agression are equal between them two. I think they weren't, this is why I score the fight for Ciryl, not just  because I'm a fan.

@Bongamin it's a fair point. But cumulative striking needs to have a visible interpretable role in showing dominance to the judges in such a way as to indicate it played a role, or would theoretically play a role in the fight drawing to close. The strikes Gane landed didn't really do anything. They had no immediate visible impact. If they had, they would have won him the rounds. It's also hard to ascribe them much value because if they had done something, Francis wouldn't have been able to pressure, and win the grappling exchanges. Simply put they didn't have any meaning in the sense they did not significantly contribute to Gane showing dominance. It's not so much that strikes count more than grappling; either of them can be interpreted to establishing dominance. It's just generally the case that striking tends to be the dominant factor in the scoring of the judges, probably because it's easier to see who did more in the capacity.

Even though Francis didn't do a lot on top, he displayed effective dominance through grappling. It was obviously the case that Gane was becoming exhausted due to top pressure, and was losing the grappling exchanges. He got reversed and controlled--although is he hadn't gone for that leglock it very well have could have been a different score on the cards.
