sparkyman -  I'm a HUGE gsp fan, and I don't know if there is proof of anything here. It could very well be poor technique.



I don't think you should rush to judgement on anything until you have proof positive.

Rush into judgment? Poor technique?? You must be high...

209 represent?!

To me that's not even the point.

That is was "intentional" or not doesn't change that it happened multiple times and could have had even more severe implications that it has.

A fighter losing his eye for one.

It doesn't seem like anyone was warned for this behavior.

If anything, Shields's next opponent could be spared being eye poked.

For that, someone from Shields's camp or the AC acknowledge this was a problem.

This hasn't had the attention it deserve.

Who gives a shit? Honestly.
GSP has his corner rubbing vasoline on his back in a fight with BJ.
Karma?

Two wrongs don't make a right and two cheaters cheating doesn't nullify the acts.

Poor technique, good technique, intentional, unintentional, dirty, clean, coward, hero.....it doesn't make a flyin' f_ck......


1) If the ref (or any ringside authority) see any punch that is thrown with "fingers out"

2)STOP the fight

3) Take a point

Same as kick to groin

If he throws another "fingers out" punch.....DQ

I would have been a huge Chuck Liddel fan but he threw many many many "fingers out" punches in his career. And once he got his opponent thinking about getting a finger (or thumb) into his eye, well good'ol Chuck now had him all set up for the KO......

Did Chuck ever eye poke anyone other than Tito in their first fight? I can't remember. Please remind me.

jimbobyeaboy - LOL at the GSP fans trying to redirect the the heat from GSP's boring fighting style to this very obviously unintentional eye poke. <img src="/images/phone/post_tag.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>



It appears there is alot more than pictures / videos on just one. Seems like shields thought punching required a thumb out or an open hand.

That's pretty damning. When a fighter does an open handed finger rake to the eye like that they should have some sort of fine or suspension.

That is the most obviously intentional eyepoke I have ever seen besides John Hess' fight against Andy Anderson...

I'd thought it completely unintentional and didn't think much of it, but those clips are pretty damning. Phone Post

I thought GSP was just being dramatic when talking about not being able to see out of his eye, but at the end the eyeball was filled with blood and pretty scary looking.

I really didn't see so many eye pokes when I watched the fight.  I'll have to watch it again and try to count them.

 Poor technique or not this sort of thing can really hurt somebody and Jake should be held accountable. 

It shouldn't matter if it was on purpose or by accident its obvious he poked GSP more than once and should either stop cheating or learn how to throw a punch before he fights again.

I think it happened at 3:29 of round 3. Jake zombie-rushed him with outstretched fingers and Georges immediately felt for his eye afterward.

Fair enough on Randy, but Vernon was hit with a closed fist, at least on the fight ending strike. This has been shown many times. Perhaps there were fingers involved previously?

I know everyone in the internet is a wise ass, but I actually am looking for an answer here.

That's the way to do it. Pretend there aren't multiple pics and animated GIFs to back the video up. Maybe no one else will notice those MASSIVE pics and GIFs if joshshitsu doesn't mention it! If you don't look directly at them it;s like they don't exist!!!
