UGCTT_I Got Fitched Up -
Andersons_Chin - That was one, very close, very fast strike, which looked unintentional.
This was 8 blatant, slow and obvious strikes, which looked intentional.
I do agree, though, that there needs to be less grey area regarding this foul. (and eye pokes) Make the call, and stick to it.
5 of those 8 landed on the ear, or right behind it, which is not illegal regardless of how it looks. Think a 2-3" mohawk down the center of the back of the head. Only that mohawk is illegal.
I can see that, but that does speak to the 'grey area' i mentioned. Is there a clear 'mohawk' definition in the rule?
I still think you cant compare Prater/Silva with Cote/Sakara
Well, in Brazil there is no sanctioning body so the UFC uses the Uninfied Rules as defined by Nevada SAC.
I believe the mohawk is defined but will look up exactly where it is defined. State to state can have different rules which is IDIOTIC. The rules should be 100% standardizes in the world imo.
I agree the two fights should not be compared as identical.
