A similar situation happened right around the same time when David Loiseau beat Evan Tanner via elbow cut despite Evan Tanner beating his ass the entire fight until that point.
These two matches led to many people protesting elbows in MMA, but thankfully the UFC's ability to handle cuts has improved dramatically since then and fights are almost never stopped because of them anymore.
Yeah, I hated Loiseau for a while for that stuff. I know it isn't his fault that his elbows were like knives for some reason, but it pissed me off. I have to say I took some pleasure in watching him lose subsequently. lol And now I'm a John Jones fan so go figure.
