The punch, was warranted, the knee, was blatantly illegal no matter whether it was after the fight or not.
No Contest is what it should have been, but Strikeforce sucks big time, and they just do their best to cover the issue with bias MMAjunkie interviews immediately following the event. That is how they cover up a lot of the giant holes in their game.
I dunno, Noons is a good fighter, I don't want to say he should be DQ'd, but I thought it should have been a No Contest before I read this thread. The knee was illegal, and it 100% landed. I'm watching it right now and it is RIDICULOUS to say it didn't. Noon's actions in throwing that knee could have seriously injured Gurgel, and like I always say: It is not the result that should gauge the punishment, but the action.
