    Why did the ref call over a doctor to look at Barber's knee last weekend in the first place? Is this going to be normal protocol from now on any time a fighter limps? Is there a section in the rule book about this? I'm trying to find more info about it, but I'm not having much success.

    That was really weird. I don't think that will be a common practice.

    It's a little concerning if it's going to become a trend.

    It was bizarre esp. the outcome.

    Doctor: Let me see if your knee is fucked.

    *Does test*

    Doctor: Yeah, it's pretty fucked. Go get 'em tiger.

    Yeah why bother with the test if it doesn’t matter either way.

    I don't see a problem as long as the test is fast and doctor says they are good to go.

    Diaz getting inspected in the third, while getting cut in the first was worse.

    I think PFL's "smartcage" already has mri scan inside it.

    They should clarify which injuries qualify for a doctor stoppage, but ultimately, you can't trust the injured fighter to evaluate himself and it's totally the doctor's call. He is the specialist after all.

    Damn... i know you are joking but i actually didnt know about this "smartcage" stuff.

    Just looked it up and now im curious how this is going to work like.

    Sounds like it could be really awesome or a total stupid gimmick

    I've never seen it. Sounds like no one else has either. But I also don't get what the big deal is either.

    Watching it live w/o sound, I was somewhat intrigued. As in "huh, I've never seen that before." Watching it again later, Rogans (and then sherdogs) reaction to it was....a bit over the top. IMO.

    I suppose it's just another 'this week's drama' that no one will remember or care about next month. Chicken Little style.

    yeah that was weird, I hope that it doesnt become the norm.

    even this doctor thought it was weird. The reaction was perfectly valid

    Imagine how different things could be if a doctor stopped Conor vs Max because of Conor's knee :eek:
