I thought the same thing watching this fight. Thr ref should have started them standing again after that blatant fence grab that led to a dominant position. That was too close of a fight to allow that to happen.

imo it should be an automatic point deduction when its that blatant and affects the flow of the fight. there are accidental fence grabs as people are falling, but he clearly did it on purpose to stop/reverse the takedown.

How that's not at least some kind of penalty is beyond me. That's like the DE jumping the snap by two seconds and nailing the QB and the refs just saying hey don't do that again.

Give the refs a ruler to smack their fingers
