    everyone is making threads about paul harris's dirty fighting tactics and how they should be dealt with

    some are even making threads to bitch about shields post-finish bitch slap...obvious trolling, of course

    everyone is ignoring the real problem: these refs are letting way too much shit slide with these fighters...the finish was brutal and clearly a dirty move by rousimar but his constant poking of the eyes throughout the fight were completely ignored by mazigatti

    these fighters are going to take every inch the ref will give them...these refs need to man the fuck up and start calling fighters on their shit...no one ever calls jones on his eyepokes either

    either these refs are being paid off to let shit slide or they are incompetent...it's one or the other

    Rousimar's eyepokes were unintentional. Shields' eyepokes against GSP were unintentional. Jones has never intentionally eyepoked anyone.

    If Hitler vs Stalin fought in an MMA match the refs would give Hitler the benefit of the doubt on any illegal strike.

    I think we all know Hitler would would lose that fight. He would have a chance to put Stalin away early but would fail to focus on Stalin's weaknesses.

    As the fight progressed, Stalin's stamina and ability to absorb punishment would become too much. Hitler fades 19:44 into the fight, 4th round loss (verbal submission).

    More seriously until someone gets dq'ed this shit isn't going to stop.

    Right now fighters have an incentive to 'accidentally' eyepoke. We need to make them terrified of committing even accidental fouls if we want to clean up this aspect of the sport.

    That was terrible reffing. Steve Mazzagati is the worst... how many times can you let a guy obviously eye gouge after being warned before finally doing something. That was pretty ridiculous.

    Shields should've punched Mazzagatti instead.

    Honestly, they both had a withered limb so it would be a pretty interesting fight.

    Stalin was still a badass motherf***er though. I'd take him in a fistfight over almost any other suit-and-tie politician.
