    Good post.
    Unfortunately, Dana needs to protect his cash cows somehow.

    Aye. I have been looking, but not seeing anything. I was/am pretty sure that low blows are the only thing a fighter gets the five minutes for. Other illegal strikes are at the discretion of the doctor and/or official. It's a go/no go determination, not a recovery period and then continue if able. I could be wrong, but I'm not finding the wording on it anywhere.

    2/3 or 3/5. It was in the link.

    NAC 467.7966  Fouls: Accidental. (NRS 467.030)

    1.  If a contest or exhibition of mixed martial arts is stopped because of an accidental foul, the referee shall determine whether the unarmed combatant who has been fouled can continue or not. If the unarmed combatant’s chance of winning has not been seriously jeopardized as a result of the foul and if the foul did not involve a concussive impact to the head of the unarmed combatant who has been fouled, the referee may order the contest or exhibition continued after a recuperative interval of not more than 5 minutes. Immediately after separating the unarmed combatants, the referee shall inform the Commission’s representative of his or her determination that the foul was accidental.
    2.  If the referee determines that a contest or exhibition of mixed martial arts may not continue because of an injury suffered as the result of an accidental foul, the contest or exhibition must be declared a no decision if the foul occurs during:
    (a) The first two rounds of a contest or exhibition that is scheduled for three rounds or less; or
    (b) The first three rounds of a contest or exhibition that is scheduled for more than three rounds.​
    3.  If an accidental foul renders an unarmed combatant unable to continue the contest or exhibition after:
    (a) The completed second round of a contest or exhibition that is scheduled for three rounds or less; or
    (b) The completed third round of a contest or exhibition that is scheduled for more than three rounds, the outcome must be determined by scoring the completed rounds and the round during which the referee stops the contest or exhibition.​
    4.  If an injury inflicted by an accidental foul later becomes aggravated by fair blows and the referee orders the contest or exhibition stopped because of the injury, the outcome must be determined by scoring the completed rounds and the round during which the referee stops the contest or exhibition.​

    EDIT: I was wrong. I had written a big thing about how it's only low blows - and it used to be that way - but the rule has officially been changed, at least in Nevada.

    It was in the link from the first page. See below, it explicitly says "accidental foul", not "low blow". This is a good rule change.
