Legit DQ. That was ridiculous... what the hell was Sakara thinking?

I've never went and read the rules but, for me these kind of situations should be deemed a NC, it makes no sense to award Cote a win.. fair enough penalise Sakara, but i don't see where Cote deserves the win. Thoughts?

Sakara should have been more aware of what he was doing. However, the referee sucks arse. Was it Dan Miragliotta? Should have given Sakara a warning on the first shot, and that might have resulted in a different winner.

Won some credits though.

Win in my eyes, it's only the lower back of the head that's illegal ( the spine area) he did hit him there 2-3 times but in the moment and he was already done, should of been a win and for sure never a win for cote....

I've seen a picture somewhere that defines the illegal "zone" and it's only a small area.

That was like 5-6 illegal shots in as many seconds (if not less). The ref isn't superhuman.

The damage was done - a warning wouldn't have done much.

I really don't care what you have to say about me, because your opinion sucks about 99% of the time, but Big Dan stood there and watched those shots and said nothing. One warning to tell Sakara hey what your doing is illegal, he stops doing that and finishes the fight any other way and he's the winner. Big Dan screwed this fight up, and its morons like you that lash out at me for telling it like it is that disgust me about the MMA community. I suggest you get a clue before you come around again, bud.

So uhhh, Cote is human?

I saw 3 illegal shots, if they weren't while he was finishing then the ref would of DQ'd him and the illegal shots did not cause him to be finished. I would of rather seen a No Contest as thats what it truly is, a fight that had no winner....

I still mark Sakara down as the first and only guy to rock and finish Cote and that is an incredible scalp for him.

I was also laughing at the beginning, when Goldie said something like "And there's the crowd chanting for Cote" when they were really doing the traditional "Olé!" chant. haha (they always do that in Montreal, especially for Habs games)

I've never quite understood the differentiation either, but if I had to guess it's not the same as a single accidental eye poke or groin shot where the opponent can't continue.

This was repeated illegal shots.
