    The rules suck but he was grounded according to it (When anything else other than the 2 soles of the feet is touching the canvas, you're grounded) and those knees clearly weren't accidental, Means said it himself in the post fight interview, Miragliota knew it too, but he pussied out and ruled them accidental knees, which was atrocious

    Means should've been DQ'ed

    Pretty sure they will change it to a DQ.

    It really should be a DQ if they decided that Alex couldn't continue. I love Joe and I know he's trying to be logically but he simply didn't know what he was talking about.

    Maybe all the regulatory people and broadcasters should have consulted the great authority of king_alcohol to decide the outcome of this fight.

    I dislike Goldy as much as the next guy but how amazing would it have been if he was the only one who didnt go full retard and got to correct Rogan on his last show after being corrected by Rogan for over 10 years...

    Gif is not the issue.

    It was Rogan going off and confusing the legality of the strike that caused all the kerfuffle.

    His knee was down, two knees landed to the head.... by the rules illegal.

    So you don't have a GIF I take it? I wasn't arguing legality or Rogan being Rogan, but I read that the knockout was pretty brutal so naturally a GIF of it would be appreciated.

    He'll get a DQ on his record after review. I don't get it though, the commission is physically present at the event, how did they allow it to be ruled a NC?

    Ah, sorry then.

    Thread is about the controversy so thought you were interested in that.

    It's no worries, and I am, but also want to just see it for myself, and if it's really that blatant and insane. Rogan probably just got out of one of his sense deprivation chambers before calling he fight and couldn't understand what he was seeing. I swear to God he sounds like he is commentating completely high sometimes with the weird ass stuff he says. Like when Bas commentates drunk.
     
  15. Lol, no.
     
  16. I apologize to the ref. He knew the rules when we didn't. That piece of shit Marc Ratner who is supposed to be a news expert didn't know shit either.

    How did it screw you on DraftKings? It counts as a push.

    Because a DQ counts as a win?????? 1st round win = 90 draw = 0 points

    and losses arent negative points not sure how you are confused?
