This whole situation is proving how many MMA fans are neckbeard weridos who just want to see someone get hurt.
I mean, i'm not surprised, but it's funny how many of you just don't cognate some people are actual sports and combat sports fans and watch MMA for it's beauty and skill, and not to see the toughest meanest guy with the biggest muscles harm another human being past the context of competition.
If someone like Josh Barnett decided not to stop after the bell, lets say, in his last fight, we could have had a death or serious injury on our hands.
Would your explanation be "well, it's ULTIMATE FIGHTING"? That's the exact kind of demeanor that gives MMA a bad reputation, and so many of you, TS included, are willingly abiding by that stance.
What Rousimar did is bad for the sport, himself and ultimately his present and future opponents, so they made the right decision.
As someone pointed out yesterday, whatever happens after the ref intervening is legally assault. If Pierce wanted to press charges, he definitely could, and that 120 day suspension handed out would seem like nothing. Of course that wont happen, but this is the type of thing Rousimar and fans defending his repeated actions need to keep in mind.
