The difference was the guy was lifting his hand when his opponent relaxed and then dropping it back down when his opponent was loading up the knee. And repeated it a few times.
JBJ looked at Herbal like "wtf this crazy brazo doin"
Herbal laid the "play the game" line on him
GS27 - Vitor threw a kick at jonny bones when he was crawling around and big John said something like "well if u wanna play the game"
This. Vitor didn't connect so it wasn't illegal and Jones still complained. The best part is that Vitor threw and if Jones didn't get up it would have landed and been illegal. It's a great way to make someone get out of a position u don't want them in.
dodson was trying to get him to knee him in the face by putting it down and pulling it up IMO
