    That is so dangerous...

    Great fight though.

    I also noticed that is the same referee that officiated during the Khabilov/Pichel fight...

    Don't see how it's that dangerous.
    You can easily tuck your chin and absorb close to no damage.

    That is very dangerous and shouldn't be allowed. What if the guy was rocked and don't realize to tuck his chin? First death in the UFC.

    From my understanding it would be illigal if Melvin would have landed with his head first. Which would be kind of a BS rule to beginn with.

    Even the Rustam suplex action was dangerous no clue how to solve this though.

    He could have let go so the fault lies with Guillard.

    If you don't want to be dropped in your head, don't throw up inverted triangles on standing opponents.

    It's just another of the loop holes the unified rules has.

    No punching to the back of the head, but feel free to elevate and slam your opponent so they hit the back of their head on the ground.

    They really need to sit down and work out everything.

    So many rules are just silly.

    Hey I don't know if you know this but these guys actually make money to fight each other while locked in a cage so I don't think they're worried about a little butt drop.

    If he had spiked him directly on his head then yes, but Melvin took most of it with his shoulders. It's kind of retarded that what makes it legal/illegal is how the guy protects himself from it, considering the guy should be trying to drop him on his head anyways...

    But it is what it is.
