    Do you guys think it's fair for a referee to immediately take a point from a fighter for committing a foul(whether it's accidental or not) during a fight if that fighter has a history of committing it?

    What if the referee gives him a warning before the fight even starts? Tell him that he knows the fighter has a history of a certain foul so he's going to be stringent and take a point on the first foul.

    If you think that's fair, what about immediate disqualifications?

    Jones haters seriously need to get a life if they're posting about this shit at 1am on a Friday night.

    So you think previous fights should have an effect on future fights? Should punches not count against Roy Nelson because they have not been shown to be able to knock him out before? Should a ref stop Frank Mir every time he attempts a sub because he has hurt people before?

    Should champions automatically win decisions, because you have to beat the man to be the man?

    Every fight should start evenly, no outside opinions, or influences.
