    then Renzo should acknowledge his loss to Frank Shamrock. Knees to the head of a grounded opponent were totally legal in early UFCs and other early NHB events.

    Win = NHB, old school fighting
    Loss = opponent has no honor, can't fight fair

    No. Renzo didn't fight by NHB rules during the fight. He also didn't make up the rules, or referee the fight so...
