    I thought the ref handled the situation with the low blow excellent. It took the ref 10-15 seconds to check with the guy watching the fight on a screen, who can control angles etc. More refs should do this during low blows where they are not 100% sure. Do you agree?

    He seemed genuinely apologetic for calling the fight early.

    I agree, he definitely fucked up at first, but took the measures to correct his own mistake.
    Good man, seemed inexperienced, but he kept his head in a tough situation and made the right call

    Would the ACs in the US ever restart a called fight?

    Agreed. It was actually good reffing even though people are giving him crap. Nobody can see every low blow and you can't just take the guy's word for it; this was a good argument for instant replay.

    he made the mistake at first, but did well to recognize and acknowledge what he had done and not let that mistake end the fight.

    It was embarrassing that he didn't know what to do, but at least he made the right call in the end.

    I think he did know what to do by the rule book

    But he realised he'd made a mistake and used common sense rather than sticking to the direct rules

    Great refereeing

    Idk, the replay showed that he was in position. Hard for him to miss the low blow.

    He did redeem himself by not burying the call though.

    The guy rotated his body as he was getting hit

    The rotation meant that he turned his back to the referee

    It could have easily seemed like a body shot to the ref
