    UFC bantamweight Merab Dvalishvili is likely to appeal his TKO loss to Ricky Simon at UFC Fight Night 128.

    Dvalishvili’s manager, Matt Culley of Battlescar Management, today told MMAjunkie that while a final decision has yet to be reached, his team has reached out to the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board about an appeal.

    Culley said Dvalishvili (7-4 MMA, 0-2 UFC) wants his loss overturned and the UFC to schedule a rematch with Simon (13-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC), who put him in a guillotine choke that prompted the referee to wave off the FS1-televised bout after the final bell.

    He looked like he out, but I'm not sure.

    I'm curious how this plays out.

    I can maybe see it turned into a NC but I think the loss is going to stick.

    Usually they don't pay attention to appeals but they should this time because that shit was whacked. You have to wave it off before the bell to stop it. When the bell rings that means you go to the scorecards. The guy was clearly out but you can't say the fight is over after the fight is over.

    100% of your posts are bullshit.
    The guy was out 3 times in the last minute. Should have been stopped as soon as the guy was knocked out from the DDT if the ref wasn't retarded.
    Or yeah, overturn it to a KO or a technical sub.

    Is this considered a double knockout since neither fighter stood up?

    Doesn't matter if he WAS out, the ref stopped the fight due to time, not because of his condition. Once that final bell sounds, its over, and goes to decision. You can retroactively call a fight a TKO after the bell has sounded

    This shit hardly ever goes well. And just looks lame. Whether you have a case or not.

    He got up to his knees and was about to stand up but the commissioner told him to lay back down

    Dude got choked out at the bell and the ref called it, albeit in a clusterfuck manner. I'm not sure what all the debate's about.

    He was kicking his legs until the bell rung. How and when did he get choked out? His legs would not be moving if he got choked out. He was kicking his legs for more than 30 seconds up until the choke was released. . Ricky pointed at Merab and said he's out. Merab looked at him and said no I'm not. Merab was not out. Not sure what the debate is about either.

    It'll be dismissed due to "lack of remedy" just like all these appeals that aren't in Missouri

    Not gonna go anywhere, Rufio's sub victory will stay

    None of these guys appeals ever end up seeing the light of day

    It was a fun fight, a high energy one, but Dvalishvili needs to work on pacing himself more and not ending up in a compromising position in a fight he was winning during the last minute

    He made a mistake, ol' boy capitalized on it, and deserves the victory.

    He does not deserve the victory. He did not finish the fight by submission. He easily lost that fight by decision.

    My thoughts...

    -Props to him for hanging on for as long as he did. There was a few moments where it looked like he was 100% out.

    -The ref should have stopped it sooner if he was going to stop it. If he WASN'T going to stop it, then don't bother after the fight is over. That's pointless.

    -Kicking your legs with your arms flat against the canvas is not intelligently defending yourself. Should have been stopped immediately once he stopped fighting with his arms.

    -It's a good thing this didn't happen in a higher profile fight. Can you imagine if this happened during a Title Fight?

    it wasnt

    that guy went out at least once, if not multiple times. he looked to be drifting in and out post fight, as well.
