I went with BIG John, altho in all refs defence i think maybe with the rise in popularity there being told to be more cautiuos as they dont want the ufc to have an image of a knocked out fighter still being pummelled. Hopefully u guys will understand what i'm "trying" to say lol. I just think with the rise at the minute image is everything, it only takes 1 paper or news station to start a bad rep for mma in general not just ufc and a ref standing by watching a knocked out guy still being punched could damage alittle.
ps. I'm exaggerating a little with my example but its along those lines that maybe refs have to be cautious.
lol sorry rant over
