Based on GDR's punches after the bell.

“We respectfully request the commission review referee Anderson’s failure to assess a foul and render a decision regarding a point deduction following Round 2, and failure to assess a foul and a point deduction following Round 3, and determine an appropriate result,” the complaint stated.

Who thinks the commission will actually rule the fight a no contest?

After I heard BJM talk about it I didn't think it was even illegal. Basically the ref stops the round, the bell is for him to know it's time.

Does everyone know and have access to these rules?

Can we see the rule book?

Otherwise it looks like they are made up as they go along.

Does kind of seem that way. But one rule we always hear is Protect yourself at all times until the ref steps in. I think fighters just forgot/get trained to the bell not someone stopping them.

Imagine if it worked, then the belt changes hands over an after effect technicality, or goes to a draw, a belt and division that not a single fucking person cares about would be even more useless and tainted. 

Dana would finally boil over

What a joke. They were late but why would you drop your hands and not bob? As for the scoring she got out struck. Move on, I suppose 3 losses you have to try something

Figured this would happen. And while I agree the chances are slim it will be overturned, I think she's right.

Regardless of how anyone feels about each fighter, the category or the weight division this clearly needed a point deduction.  Fighters have been suspended and banned for this.

 

the referee had no business in the main event.  This was blatant.  Hope it works out for her because if it was a guys fight im guessing most would be arguing for the point deduction.

Soul Gravy - Daley got banned for it.
Come on, man, those aren't the same at all. It's more akin to Aldo dropping Chad Mendes with punches after the bell in their 2nd fight.

0 chance of being overturned, in my opinion.

Pretty much exactly like Aldo/Mendes, absolutely nothing like Daley/Koscheck.

You think a decision should be overturned, because of foul that happened in the 2nd round? Mendes should appeal his decision loss to Aldo.

Has a decision ever been over turned for something so small?

she was clearly wobbled after the first late hit.  She was badly wobbled.
