But it still hit him.
The difference between a foul tip and a single is fractions of an inch... but they're both considered contact.
I totally agree!
I will even take the baseball analogy a step further too...
Take a "strike" and a "ball". When an umpire has to make a call after a pitch, the lines he has to watch are somewhat imaginary. It's the same in Boxing and MMA when a ref has to use discretion as to what to actually deduct a point for. It's not always the same call every time and every ref is a little different.
