imo, aggressiveness should be measured primarily by whether the judges think that the fighter is going for the finish. I'm not saying that fighters should just go out and bang mindlessly, but certainly, they should be fighters should be given a punitive ding for essentially fighting for a stalemate, which Randy appeared to be doing. He never threaten any real damage to Vera at any point in the fight. By the third, it was pretty obvious that he 1) Wasn't inflicting that much damage, and 2) Wasn't going to take down Vera for any decisive GnP. I think that the fight was scored fairly given the guidelines, but this fight highlighted some of the problems with those. Yeah I agree with you, this fight was a good example of a stalemate in that sense. Honestly I am surprised by how many people think that Vera was robbed, Randy was a clear winner in my eyes, if only for that he seemed to have much better "octagon control", which the judges seem to rate very highly. Position is key in the UFC, this is very similar to how, when the fight is taken to the ground, the fighter on top always gets the point advantage. It doesn't matter if the guy on his back is throwing endless subs, as long as he is on his back and he doesn't submit the other guy, then he will lose on the judges scorecard. Kind of like with Serra vs Hughes, Serra was throwing some sick bjj submission attempts, got pretty close a few times, but Hughes managed to stay on top and even though he inflicted little damage, he managed to pull out a victory(which pains me greatly as I really wanted to see Matt The Douchebag Hughes get submitted). I am not even thinking about UFC 106 at this point, my mind has already gone past that to the awesomeness that is UFC 107: Penn vs Sanchez. This has the potential to be a truly epic championship fight. I think it is pretty obvious that Sanchez's best chance is to come out guns blazing and hope for a first or second round knockout. If he doesn't manage then I think that his chances of winning become slim, as I could see Penn taking a a decision or like a late-round submission. Granted this all depends, if Penn is in as good a state of condition as he was against Florian, then Sanchez will have his hands full as Penn has a really good chin. Nothing would make me happier than to see Diego Sanchez knock BJ Penn the fuck out.
