    A DQ in a title fight should let the belt where she is, in the waist of the champ

    For me a DQ should result -at best- to a No contest/draw or -at worst- to a defeat for the fighter who make the foul, not much.

    Make no sense to give a belt and a champ statut in that way.

    Your thought?

    By that logic everytime a champion was losing a fight he could just use an illegal move to get dq’d.

    It is unfortunate for the belt to change hands that way - but it is the right thing to do.

    Besides - the controversy has created headlines and will ultimately lead to greater exposure for both men.

    Stupid idea.

    Imagine the champ getting beat up and do something crazy to get dq in the 5th round.

    The champion should absolutely be stripped. Blatant cheating is a very bad look for Ufc champions. However, Sterling shouldn't get the belt.

    So just kick a guy in the balls every time you're losing? Great idea.

    So the champion should have the option of blatantly cheating and stealing the opportunity from his opponent? No, that's not how sports works. The guy that gets DQed is the loser, period.

    That's what I just said. The cheater should be disqualified, but Sterling getting the belt? Not sure on that one

    Or Champ is getting lit up the whole fight.

    5th round starts eye pokes challenger and punches him in the back of the head and finishes with soccer kicks to retain the belt.

    That means if a champion is losing to a guy he doesn't like, all he has to do is kick him in the balls to rob him of his championship victory. That's absolute nonsense.

    Honestly, Aljo should have refused to accept the belt and there would be NO champion.
    But I agree with him being declared the winner after the illegal strike.

    That said, that knee should be legal. If a guy can't defend himself then he gets KO'd. But with the rules what they are Aljo didn't train to defend himself there so I revert to my first conclusion for this fight.

    There’s got to be a consequence for doing stupid shit otherwise people will keep doing stupid shit.

    that being said kneeing downed opponents should be made legal already. Just like the dumb 12-6 elbow rule.

    They probably should have just moved to a technical decision with a penalization to Yan. Enough of the fight had been fought for it to be fine. But definitely not down with the champ keeping the belt on a DQ. This isn't pro wrestling. At best I could maybe be OK with the belt just going vacant if the champ gets DQ'd. But even that is exploitable. Losing the fight and don't like your opponent? Just get dq'd and deny them the belt. It's not a perfect system, but it is what it is. It dosen't happen enough to really be a huge consistent problem.

    Yes it should. Champs shouldn’t have a free pass to cheat because a guy you’re a fan of couldn’t follow the rules.

    Then why would a champ bother even training? 2 kicks to the tool bag and walk my can't remember how to fight ass the fuck out with my belt.
    You clearly put no thought into this thread
