The crucifix is a dangerous position that is very difficult to get out. If the top fighter isn't putting the bottom fighter in severe harm there is no reason to stop the fight imo.
No. but okay.

You couldn't be anymore wrong. The ref is supposed to give them 5 minutes. You don't call the fight when a fighter can't see RIGHT after he got poked.

I don't get it.
if it happens in the 3rd rd, you go to the scorecards.

goes with eye pokes, nut shots or illegal strikes where the person cannot continue.

No, 5-minute breaks are only for low blows actually.

That's a load of bollocks. Anthony Johnson took a finger deep in the eye from Kevin Burns, fell to the ground face first, screaming and writhing in pain, and the ref still gave him time to recover. Everyone gets 5 minutes after an eye poke, and if he knew how to do his job, he would have told Villante that he had five minutes to see if the problem corrected itself.

It's standard procedure.
