When you look take downs are scored based on success and attempts, Uno had very very little success and a ton of attempts. On that night Spences constant defense of the take down helped him to a victory, The key being "that night".
MMA and Boxing have very similar scoring issues. One fight they will award the victory to the brawler or the guy who let his hands go, then the next fight they award it to the boxer even though the brawler was throwing more. Both fights could be fought the exact same way, but the scoring wont be.
