    Hughes went out in the triangle choke and fell, slaming Newton head in to the canvas.

    BS call today, the Georgian guy wasn't even out.

    Yes, this fight bringing back memories. Fans debated that fight for years as they will this one.

    At least that was still during the fight.

    This is literally a case of the fight ending, and the ref deciding a fighter can't continue even though the fight is over

    Newton grabbed the top of the fence preventing the slam from happening earlier. If he never did that there would’ve been no controversy. So basically the right guy won that one.

    And one slam is as good as another, the first would have definitely knocked out Newton.

    Wherever you go, there you are
    Hughes vs Bj 2 would have went the other way if fighter couldn't be saved by the bell
