Don't all moves illegal have that type of impact on a fight. groin shots, cage grabbing, shots to the back of the head. The ref was out of position and missed it, it happens.

At least I don't have to hear, "Don't poke him in the eyes" a million times with no repercussions.

there are many times a ref doesn't see an illegal blow. It didn't seem intentional either.

I'll say it again... if it's not called, it's not illegal. True winners pull through and finish...

I could understand if Turk was really holding his own in there but he was losing that fight by a land slide. Sure, anything can happen in MMA but given how many times fighters have had to fight out of a illegal blow (Hughes/Trigg II comes to mind) ,this should be no surprise, it happens a lot. Instead of crying about the ref not seeing the poke (Because he was on the other side of the exchange, which common sense says he couldnt have seen the poke) Turks team should be thankful the UFC is giving him another shot. Really, the only highlight reel moments Turk has produced so far are of him losing badly.

QFT

Due to the eye poke he probably does deserve another shot but CroCop was clearly in imposing his will.
