Must have been the "phantom punch" to the top of his head that caused him to slip. More proof that this place is infested with complete idiots.

Attila - Must have been the "phantom punch" to the top of his head that caused him to slip. More proof that this place is infested with complete idiots.



I'm pretty sure we all realize that he had the crap beaten out of his head when Vitor punched him in the back of the head twice right before the ref pulled him off. Thus, the fact that there are possible head injuries doesn't necessarily prove that the initial "phantom punch" that people are complaining about wasn't in fact a "phantom punch."

Personally, I don't think the punch that knocked Akiyama down gave him any head injuries, since it was more of a grazing punch. It seemed to just mess with his equilibrium due to the location of the strike.

I'd imagine these injuries are from the 2 punches to his brain stem...

everyone knows vitor doesn't hit that hard, especially if he lands a couple punches to the back of your head.

Head injury, huh. I guess that's what they're classifying comas as now.

Get better, sir. Phone Post

 He did take some shots to the back of the head and got knocked out cold. No surprise he needs further suspension and a neurological exam. No news here.

Well considering that the shots to the back of the head where the ones that knocked him out, I would imagine they where the ones that did the damage.

fuck.
I'd rather get soccer kicked in the face than to get two ambolts in the back of the head like that. That's the kind of shit that could damage you for life.
