Did you even read the article at all Slapshot? They said clearly that it would only come into play when it was determined that an illegal blow had ended the fight... As in Anthony Johnson vs. Kevin Burns or Aina vs. Evangilista.

Nobody has said it should be used to review early/late stoppages. It is all about preventing a fighter from getting a Loss on their record due to an illegal blow/eye poke...

I just assume it will be expanded, as it stands now I dont see replay being used enough to mean anything but it will be perceived as successful and then IMO expanded. Thats what I would have a issue with.

They already have the ability to overturn fights after the fact, I think it would be better to just add more avenues to appeal its just a slower process and people dont like that.

You're right in that I cant find anything wrong with using it the way they set it up now.

Simply having the option is what is important. Even if it is rarely used, which is how it should be, the fact that the refs CAN review their fight stopping calls is crucial.

Being locked into a split second decision because of technical rules is simply stupid.
