Sakkara was literally rocked less than 30 seconds earlier and likely was still shaking the cob webs. The call was the right one but people can't blame sakkkara because he likely didn't do it with malice but merely because he was in survival mode trying to finish and trying to clear his head all at once. I am usually pretty harsh on this stuff but when you consider the way the fight played out you need to realize that his head would have been far from screwed on right and add that to the fact the ref failed to react as well. The call had to made to maintain the standard but I think Sakkara deserves a little grace from the fans on this one.
