    From what i've read, McKee's eye was blinded after that overhand, which is why he tapped so quickly. Reminded me of Cro Cop - Barnett where the same thing happened to Barnett.

    Cro Cop was an eye poke.

    I remembered it was a punch from Cro Cop while on top of Barnett's guard though.

    what were Mauro and them yammering about McKee saying even before the fight that he would tap once he got hit?

    and also, Nate Diaz fought w/ one eye against Bendo for 5 rounds.

    It was a fist poke to the orbital. Barnett was on his back and CroCop was on top throwing punches.
