Ok, if those are the rules, then i agree that points should not have had been deducted. Thanks for the enlightenment on the matter.

However, i do feel that Varner knew Melvin was hiting the ground with his head in a brutal way and i feel that due to the danger of a serious injury, that should be taken into account when evaluating/preventing this kind of situations.
