i agree in a sense. however, we're talking illegal shots to the back of the head, not something like determining if someone is finished or not. stopping a fight is judgment call. illegal shots, warnings and then penalties aren't. Tito got points taken for grabbing the cage against Rashad and that's a main reason Rashad didn't lose. Sylvia and Liddell are allowed to grab the cage at will. Mir was allowed to grab the cage against Sylvia, twice, and lock in that armbar. i guess that's karma for Sylvia? or maybe he hadn't started grabbing the cage yet?
Dana thinks Mazz sucks BTW.
