    Even Joe Rogan was confused, like wtf? This was not the first time someone with a knee on the ground got kneed to the head. That was really weird.

    Yeah, Ratner's discussion with Rogan seemed to bring some clarity before they were overruled by Big Dan. That was a bit embarrassing. That's like the "off-side" rule of mma. Day One stuff<{hughesimpress}>

    Amateur moment. Rules should be followed. Still waiting for it to be overturned to a dq.

    I thought it was clearly illegal as he was a downed fighter, then the commission got involved and made it all confusing
