    When Herb dean stopped the fight I thought it was because Green called him a motherf***ker.
    Is there any rule against how bad your language can be?
    Are there any no-no words that would be "unsportsmanlike" that they would need to stop the fight over? what about the n word?

    Apparently it is a rule but most refs don't do anything outside of "hey shut up"

    Herb was angry at the late shot by Lima beans

    Greene called him a motherfucker because of the late shot

    The late shot was because of the Greene eye raking

    Considering how retarded referring can be lately I wouldn't be surprised someone DQ'd for shit talking mid fight.

    Forbidden.

    Knocking someone out onto queer street is perfectly acceptable though.

    It's in the rules technically right? but come on...

    but if Michael Page can have a point taken a way for making a face before an elbow by Dan Miragliotta the I can see Dan pointing someone for cursing.

    It's technically against the rules, as in taunting. However it's rarely enforced.. Nor should it
