Chris Tognoni thought it was a low blow, replay showed it wasn’t even close.  

Where was the secondary official sitting ringside to tell him he was wrong?  

They should have restarted the fight as soon as they saw the replay!

They just answered by question.

low blow is NOT available on replay.

only fight ending sequences can get replay.

That's such a dumb policy. The entire fight should be available on replay and should be used to help the ref make better decisions or overrule bad ones.

That should get appealed and overturned. Herman is dirty and shouldn't fight in the UFC again.

Pulala - That should get appealed and overturned. Herman is dirty and shouldn't fight in the UFC again.

How is Herman dirty? He got hit and got down - do you think in the moment he had any idea where he was hit?

Feel awful for Rodriguez, but you can’t be mad out Herman about that.

Ed didn't fake a low blow, though. He just went down. Ref just screwed up. Which fighter would stand up and say, naw man, that was good, he won by tko.

He even said in the post fight interview that all he knows is that he was hurt.   

I would like to know from fighters...can you tell when you are hit in the mid section and feel pain... an you tell exactly where the pain is? I.e difference from nut shot or legal shot?   I'm sure its even different in the heat of a fight.

This is all on the ref. Hopefully it gets changed 2 a no contest.

He wasn’t actually finished. He was hurt but we’ll never know whether he may have been able to survive. The decision should and likely will stand imo.

He knew it wasnt a low blow. You could tell he was lying about it in the post fight interview.

It’s an unfortunate, shitty situation that could be rectified by making it FOTN so Mike gets an extra 50k to make up for it. His stock didn’t go down at all tonight.

Probably no fighter would do that , but they wouldn't walk around grabbing their jock like they just got a low blow either.

You're right, he did survive getting dropped by a body shot again, later in the round.

Ed was playing it up , shifting he’s can around during the break like he took a nut  shot. It’s not his fault the ref fucked up, but your dam right he knew it wasn’t a nut shot. It wasn’t even close .
