But in pressing the issue, he left himself open for a counter that dropped him with less than 30 seconds remaining, and was subsequently dropped against just before the final bell.

How would you score the round?Would you place greater emphasis on the two kd's and call it 10-7, or call it a 10-8 round because Hassan did much better worth throughout ninety percent of the round...?

(I went with the latter option, but I wanted to hear you take and rationale for the score)
Its a good question. Clean punching isn't EVERYTHING. N'Dam had clean punching going for him in that round but Quillin had ring generalship, some clean punching of his own and 2 knockdowns. Quillin might have been outlanded in the round but was he dominated? I'm going 10-7.

Who wins the round?

I don't think there is enough info here.. who is being more aggressive? Who's style is more effective in the round? Sounds like a round for Fighter A just based on what you said but there are a bunch of other things going on that need to be taken into consideration.
