I'm all for those Romero's elbows, but aren't they 12-6?

    Yeah, I seriously cannot believe what I just saw...

    Just rewound it, and Romero throws exactly 11 TEXTBOOK 12 to 6 elbows consecutively.

    It's one thing where a guy is out of it and the ref overlooks a blow to the back of the head, or two....

    But Jesus Christ, the guy just committed 11 consecutive fouls... ELEVEN!!!!

    I was thinking the same thing, those definitely looked like illegal elbows (According to the rules). Why does Jon Jones get DQ'd but there have been several fighters that have used them since that haven't?

    Yeah, I was thinking that too. Does Brunson have a case if he tries to overturn the result due to those probably illegal elbows?

    Yes.

    Great fight and finish nonetheless. I mean he pretty much already won but that was blatant and the commentators didn't even make a peep. They it replayed a couple of times. WTF at least acknowledged it if nothing more then for educational purposes.

    To reiterate, I approve of those types of elbows as well as what Travis Browne just did,

    but like as a fight capper, it's really hard to breakdown a fight when I don't even know what the rules are anymore.

    Edit:
    I just gave you a reason why I care

    Should be a no contest. Easily the most blatant 12-6 elbows case i've ever witnessed.

    Those ones definitely are illegal. But i don't think they'd overturn it because they didn't change the eventual outcome. People should reference those next time some idiot tries to argue that Travis Browne threw 12-6 elbows in an arc.

    towards the end you can see that he brings his elbow straight down because it's directly above the body, as opposed to travis browne whose body is directly above Barnett, making a 12-6 impossible

    Those were 12-6, but aren't they only illegal to the head/neck?

    Maybe i'm remembering wrong.


    Edit: Nevermind, it says "no striking downward with the point of the elbow", so those would be illegal elbows.

    Maybe the ref interpreted them as landing more with the back of the arm side of the elbow, as opposed to the point. I don't know. Looked illegal-ish, but my money was on Yoel, so i'm hesitant to complain...

    So, I think there were about forty-seven or so illegal elbows before the near death late stoppage by this absolutely horrible ref.

    I also believe 12-6 elbows are illegal to the body. Am I wrong? I think Kongo was warned when he threw them against Buentello a while ago.

    And to quote someone else ...
