    these refs are sending fighters on a highway fast track to see their maker.. why do they take their sweet ass time after a dude has already been knocked out, clearly isn't fighting back already gone limp yet still waits to go grab some lunch, take a shit, talk to a few fans then and only then stops the fight?

    That Knight fight, what do they consider "back of the head"? I've seen fights where he would've been warned & then dq'd for all of those.

    Those elbows by William Knight to the "side of the head" were pretty questionable. Definitely looked like he may have had a few big ones to the back of the dome,

    If you single leg, or attempt a single leg takedown, and don’t have the 2 brain cells left to realize that you’re stagnant, and you’re not getting anywhere, especially against an opponent that is clearly physically stronger than you, then you deserve to be knocked out for that easy, and unimpressive win that you just handed to someone. You weren’t surviving...you were dead before you even knew it.
