    I was just thinking,

    Last event, the first fight of the night I saw Devin Clark throw 5 illegal knees to Rakic’s face and the ref didn’t know it was illegal.

    And then Cowboy Oliveira was grabbing the fence multiple times to stop a TD and also multiple elbows to the back of the head.

    I also remember the event before this Joe Benavidez threw a series of back of the head shots.

    I can’t remember the last time I saw someone get a point deducted.

    The competence of these referees and their objective judgement should be the factor.
    Seems that they have none. Just like commissions they work for.

    Gerard Gordeau - Teila Tuli comes to mind... wait... that was an early stoppage.

    No.

    It has never happened.

    I can't remember the fight, but I know I've seen it happen at least once.

    However, it should be far, far more common. Any major foul should be 1 point deduction for the first offense. A significant eye poke, groin shot, shot to the back of the head (GSP-Serra) can change the outcome of a fight.

    Referees are too scared to do it though.

    Lando getting a point deducted for the knee he threw against Bobby Green (which didn't hit his head in slow mo) is the latest one I can remember.

    They should just count the fucking fouls and deduct points once the round is over.

    That will set some shit straight.

    Fuck up its a point. That simple

    Refs are too afraid to influence the outcome. Point deductions can be very significant especially given how few rounds there are in MMA. It would lead to a lot more draws.

    The worst is when a ref issues multiple warnings for the same foul and does shit about it.

    Ufc refs have become like pro-wrestling refs. Completely useless and enforce nothing.

    Guys could start slamming each other with folding chairs and no points would be deducted these days.

    Werdum grabbed the cage 7 times vs Hunt.

    I was the only person in the world to notice it seems.

    These weren't instinctual grabs like Aldo Mendes but clear and drliberate.

    Cowboy Olivera should have been deducted a point.
    Referee fail. Sad thing is he even caught him and then blew it.

    Kharitonov was deducted a point after he threw a couple of weak knees, one of which could be legal, and Roy flopped

    that's the most recent one i can think of,

    BJM said since it was a "damaging blow with intent" and that dan miragliotta should have deducted 2 points,

    now that would be some #1 bullshit

    I think that Asian twink Ulka Sasaki got deducted a point for timidity not too long ago.

    Khabib vs Arymarcel Santos situation:

    Santos shot for the TD, almost got it, but Khabib used the ropes = 1 point deducted
