I'm all for those Romero's elbows, but aren't they 12-6?

I'm so confused about the rules lately.

mod edit. if you want to read a bit about elbows.

Yeah, I seriously cannot believe what I just saw...

Just rewound it, and Romero throws exactly 11 TEXTBOOK 12 to 6 elbows consecutively.

It's one thing where a guy is out of it and the ref overlooks a blow to the back of the head, or two....

But Jesus Christ, the guy just committed 11 consecutive fouls... ELEVEN!!!!

It ain't easy being white

I was thinking the same thing, those definitely looked like illegal elbows (According to the rules). Why does Jon Jones get DQ'd but there have been several fighters that have used them since that haven't?

Yeah, I was thinking that too. Does Brunson have a case if he tries to overturn the result due to those probably illegal elbows?

Yeah I can't believe that. What the hell was the ref watching?

Great fight and finish nonetheless. I mean he pretty much already won but that was blatant and the commentators didn't even make a peep. They it replayed a couple of times. WTF at least acknowledged it if nothing more then for educational purposes.
