    Close-ups of the actual fingers in the eye would help imo. The fingers being extended is a common thing that refs need to deduct points for.

    Under the new rules fighters aren’t allowed to have their fingers pointing towards the other guy’s face like that.

    But not all of the athletic commissions have adopted the new rules yet. Then of course it will be up to the ref to actually enforce the rules. Which means deducting points. And they seem so reluctant to that, for any fouls.

    In those pictures where his fingers are semi curled toward the mat was definitely him trying to eye poke.....

    Think of the fallout if Ferguson-Khabib ends due to eyepokes.

    I've a bad feeling Tony will try some borderline illegal shit with Khabib, Khabib will get hurt as a result and decide to wave off the fight rather than risk a loss to his undefeated record continuing on.

    How many times did he poke him in the eyes, compared to punching him in his grill?<{vega}>

    Harder to get off subtle eye pokes when you're on your back, getting dry humped and punched in the face and body.

    Dirty as a used jockstrap. Just like that kick on barboza was anything but accidental.

    So, How many eye pokes did RDA suffer exactly in that fight?

    Eye pokes, nut shots, fence grabs, faking to be grounded and etc are all part of the game. If the referee is not going to do anything other then give you time to rest and recover, then you are stupid for not doing it. LOL

    People remember that fight as some sort of dominant performance from Tony when it wasn't the case at all

    He only won a 48-47 decision and really only took over the fight after a really bad eye poke in the second round semi-blinded RDA

    What? You mean actually looking at the context rather than just seeing "Decision (UNANIMOUS)" on wikipedia and basing your views off that?
