    DCs win over Stipe should be taken away as well as Barbosas recent loss.

    Cutting weight and taking PEDs isn't enough cheating for the modern day MMA fighter so they eye poke too.

    Fookin pussies.

    I was pleased in Blaydes/Oleinek when they ruled it a TKO.

    Half the time no one knows whether video replay is available or can be used. The whole thing is a bit of a mess.

    They can't stop the progress and momentum every time there a possible foul. Instead change the gloves or actually start enforcing the open hand rule and deducting poi ts so the fighters change. I havent seen them deduct a single point for it still. If u want it to stop, then make the price too high to pay. In all honesty the way it is now, a fighter can do it on purpose to gain an advantage and the worst that can happen is a NC. Assuming it's the first time in the fight. Same with groin shots. If a guy's beating ur ass, why not (else than sportsmanship) kick him in the nuts. Even after they recover for 5 min, it usually effects the fight in the long run. I remember Kongo kneeling mirko in the nuts repeatedly during their fight. The fighters really don't make enough to allow sportsmanship to override their need to get paid and win. Jones uses eye pokes consistently. The refs know this.. And should be watching him very closely and deducting points when he does it. The barboza poke by Justin.. No one even seen it live, and to stop the fight to watch replay would have been after the ko because the ref never even saw it, and no one knew until someone in the truck told the commentators. It wouldn't have been usable then as barboza was out and wasn't going to continue if they replayed and say the inadvertent poke... What can they do else than deduct a point that wouldn't have at all changed the outcome after barboza was unconscious..

    But where would they keep it and would they get knocked out while putting their hands down their shorts trying to pull it out?

    In a perfect world sure but it will only lead to fights being stopped every 30 seconds to review a stupid foul while fighters stand around doing nothing catching their breath and fight cards become twice as long.
