Yes, Vitor would have won anyway, etc.

But FUCK, Akiama went unconcious from 2 full force punches to the back of the head. The last one connected right where the spine connects to the skull.

Fucking A.

 I love Belfort and he would've won anyway.. but it was two shots directly to the back of the head that put out Akiyama.

Soon it's going to be trained. "If your guy goes down in trouble start punching the back of his head. The refs aren't stepping in and it's your job to finish, etc...."

Vitor has a habit of doing this. He did the same thing against Franklin.

It's almost like the fighters are allowed to punch the back of the head as long as it's during a flurry. If the illegal punch causes the guy to go out - oh well - he was going out anyway. It's fucked up, but I don't know if there's a way to fix it.

It all depends one "who" you are, as to weather or not you can punch to the back of the head. Same as grabbing the cage.....Some can do it.....While others can NOT.....

If a fighter is "turning into" the shot it's not an illegal blow. In this case he was KO'd already, and it couldn't have been helped.

 Uh....he was already KOd and kissing the mat. He wasn't turning into anything. Vitor has done this in the past and he just doesn't care.

Yeah, I think the under arm shot hurt him bad, and Vitor still would have ended it shortly thereafter. But the KO blows were clearly back of the head.

As Yogi Berra would say, "Its like deja vu all over again."

Hitting behind the ear is apparently okay. I would guess roughly 90% of illegal punches to the back of the head are not called. Belfort's punches were absolutely ridiculous and disgraceful. Jesus DID NOT give you the power to cheat and potentially permanently injure your opponent. Fighters realize they are not being called and are throwing them more often. IMO the second biggest problem in MMA behind judging.

 What's funny is many of them are the same ones complaining how this is turning into a boring sport, and they long for the days of "real" NHB and vale tudo.

 Noone is saying Akiyama would have won. Someone is going to get seriously hurt. Stop being an amoeba and enjoy your VTFD.

No one would care if it wasn't in the rulebook.

Anderson would have beat Okami anyway,
but KO by illegal blow is an illegal blow, period.

Should have been a DQ.
