It seems after this, every fighter out there, after they rock their opponent, should just wail away on the back of their head to end the fight. The ref isn't going to give a shit because it looks like he is protecting the fighter and the winner will be able to dismiss it as the rush of finishing the fight.

yeah i kinda think if it was a less liked fighter then people would care more. I do think there should be some rules in place so people dont just get 2 excited and whale on someones back of the head and paralyze them. This should be talked about in the locker room before the fight since its kinda unfair to take someones win away at the last second.

I dont think he is arguing the stoppage..
