Some knees are allowed by refs because they were "playing the game" I don't remember which fight had that but someone had their hand on the ground and the knee was allowed because they were "playing the game" I think it was Herb Dean that said that during the fight?

Yes it was Herb and I believe someone else after him.

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. Phone Post

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
