    I'm not even talking about the punch. The fact that he blames the loss on the eye gouging, and not the fact that Palhares beat the shit out of his mid section for a solid 90 seconds in the third round of a grueling fight, for his getting caught in an armbar off a takedown.

    I don't agree with Palhares putting his fingers in the eyes, or for holding that submission as he's been known to do. I don't even blame Shields for punching him in the face as soon as the ref ripped Palhares off him. But blaming a loss by kimura on having been eye gouged? Fact is Shields was tired, as Palhares was beating the fuck out of his body that whole round against the cage and on the ground. He was tired and he got sloppy when he hit that takedown.

    If anyone can post the gif when it becomes available that'd be great.

    Edit: Thanks to SheetsMMAfan for the gif:

    He released it right after the ref touched him. People complaining bout this?

    But yea, you dont throw punches after the ref stops it cmon guy.

    It did look like Paul Harris hung onto the hold a little longer than he needed to. But if he let go as soon as the ref intervened then he wouldn't be Paul Harris.

    I really hope one day somebody can catch Paul Harris in something and not let fucking go. That dude has been warned so many damn times about that shit and still continues to do it.

    I hope someone ends his career by not letting go of a leg lock.

    Watching it live it was definitely longer than need be. It sure appeared to be "more than 1 second"

    If you watch the fight in context, the ref stops the action TWICE to tell Palhares to stop raking the eyes. He didn't eye-poke him, he literally and repeatedly raked the eyes. It was pretty gross and hard to watch.

    I don't think Palhares is fit to be licensed. Whatever is going on with him psychologically, he will do anything to win. Jake got him down and dominant position at will, then he would gouge at his eyes. By the end of the second round he went back to his corner with his eyes torn up.

    Shields is pretty livid, and I do not blame him.

    Steve Mazzagatti had absolutely no control over that fight.

    Are you blind?

    The ref had to physically grab his arm because he wasn't letting go.

    I can't believe this dude is still allowed to fight. He's going to seriously hurt someone one day, more so than he has already.
