    At the 0:39-0:40 mark, Hunt's hand get slapped by the ref


    Does anyone remember what happened there? Did Hunt get multiple warnings and never listened?

    Remember in Pride when they had like 20 guys around the cage manically slapping the hands of the fighter they didn't want to win every time he looked at a rope funny

    It’s fitting that they give the offending fighter a literal slap on the wrist. They never actually punish them for breaking the rules

    I don't think the refs are allowed to strike a fighter but they often do slap a fighters hand if they're holding the cage. No disciplinary action has been brought against a referee for striking a fighter that I'm aware of but fighters have been punished for striking referees.

    needs to be pro wrestling like where the ref kicks the hand off the cage and then pushed the fighter when the fighter stands up to him.

    Fighters should lose a finger every time they grab the fence. That'll teach em.
