    Not sure if it has been posted here before

    Big John reacts to Rogan saying "it look legal to us (knee)"



    And those who thought the same, do you even know the rules?


    And for those who didn't watch the fight

    PS Means doesn't know the fucking rules either, if I'm not wrong he said to Dan and Rogan "yeah, it was legal"

    people give goldy crap, but rogan was on point last night. between that knee comment and the "headbutt cut".... if ufc wants to be considered a sport they need more informed commentators

    That was the most blatantly illegal knee I've ever seen. How can anyone even argue that? Oliveira was literally on one knee!?!? Why is this even controversial? That shit was obviously illegal and you have to be retarded to think otherwise.

    maybe they think is legal because his feet was not touching the ground but still, he had a knee on the ground, clearly ilegal

    The ref for the Means/Oliveira fight was Dan Miragliotta.

    I think it happens so rarely that forgetting that
    one knee down is illegal is kinda understandable. Usually the focus is on the hands or mostly one hand.

    Oliveira only realized it was illegal after Dan called a time out.and then he proceeded to act it up like a soccer player

    I was responding to the title of your post, which is "Big John McCarthy had to be thinking "WTF Rogan, are you a fucking casual fan?" That's Dan who is in the shot, not Big John.

    Yeah, it was pretty bad. It shows how unorganized and questionable the rules are for mma even in the biggest organization. It's funny how even the specialist was completely wrong about a basic rule. The specialist and Rogan being baffled by a basic rule had me second guessing what the rule was also. Then out of confusion they make the fight a no contest because of "accidental knees" which clearly were not. I don't know how these professionals who's job is to know these things by heart could make mistakes like this. With incidents like these and the random unstandardized referee point deductions/warnings (how many eye pokes, low blows, cage grabs warrant for a point deduction) shows how even the big leagues in mma are still unprofessional.

    You are right but I believe the confusion is due to the 3 points of contact. If a fighter is on his feet but puts a hand down he used to be considered a downed opponent but that was changed so that you cant just lift your hand and then put if back to "Play The Game". I believe being on only one knee over rules being a downed opponent. Definitely confusion somewhere? I didn't hear the pbp since i was there live.
