I'm sick and tired of seeing fighters being put under a microscope, every little thing they do is blown out of proportion. When are the ABSOLUTE piss poor judges and refs going to start getting what they deserve? When they fuck up as bad as they did this past weekend they need to start getting fined/suspended.

Six years from now, no one is going to be talking about this. Or maybe everything in the world is a wild, racist conspiracy and I'm too dumb to see it.
Not that I disagree with you but to your point about a million people watching, the gif is from the James Thompson vs Kimbo Slice fight. 6.5 million people watched that fight, it's the second most watched fight in MMA history.

Brown was holding his hand to his eye and then went ballistic and shoved Triplette, knocking him to the ground. Brown was ejected from the game and subsequently suspended by the NFL, although the suspension was lifted when his injury did not heal.

"Brown sat out the entire 2000 season waiting for his right eye to heal. The Browns released him after the season. In 2001, he sued the NFL for $200 million in damages. According to reports, he settled for a sum between $15 million and $25 million in 2002.

"Brown spent the 2001 and 2002 seasons in rehab before he was picked back up by the Ravens in 2003."

That ref is lucky he didn't get stomped on too. He fucked up someone's career and risked leaving him permanently injured.

Fine and suspension at the very least. I would fire him but Dana isn't man enough too

When have they ever cut someone for something comparable to this?
