    I have been watching quite a bit of MMA in the past few years and I cannot remember so many eye pokes in such a short fight as Nelson vs. Ponzi was.
    The poster of this 50 second video claims that Ponzi was eye poking on purpose. At first I thought the first eye poke was just unfortunate but this video has me kinda wondering.
    I'll leave it to the collective intelligence of Sherdoggers expecting some nuggets of wisdom.

    Ok I think those pokes were intentional. The fight should be overturned to a no contest. Before I thought the poke was accidental but there are far too many pokes and it's clear what this dude REALLY wanted to accomplish.

    Damn, SBG sleeper account. Kavanagh plans dese tings long term.

    Like Bisping said on the broadcast Gunnar sticks his chin out like a rookie and it's only a matter of time he gets cracked. Eyepoke or not this Argentinian exposed him.

    BTW, you might want to make you thread title a bit more specific because people won't know what you're talking about.

    Looked like he was trying to push off Gunnar, not intentional imo.

    Then again, I'm biased.

    Then maybe Gunnar should have said something about it during the fight instead of all this bitching afterwards.

    Fair point. I am biased too being a Gunni fan but I don't love him so much as to deny reality. I actually don't see how he was pushing Gunnar off when he had his back against the fence. Besides, even if he is pushing him off, he cannot do it with his fingers extended like that.

    that was really bad. Intentional or not it should be overturned based on that video.

    It's a 50 second video from a 82 second fight containing 4 eye pokes. That's all it is.

    I don't care about Nelson but that was extremely excessive. Even it's not on purpose you can't poke someone repeatedly in the eye.
