Such a pretty slam and finish. I hope we see at least one slam. Yancy looks like he could go for some flying.

That's what Villante gets for unwinding 3 inches of tape on his glove to get a breather in the first round.

It's at the discretion of the referee to determine how much time you receive for a foul or if there are points to be deducted. Usually, they give them 5 minutes to recover.

Quote:
If a foul is committed:

The referee shall call timeout.
The referee shall order the offending contestant to a neutral location.
The referee shall check the fouled contestant's condition and safety.
The referee shall then assess the foul to the offending contestant and deduct points if the referee deems it appropriate, and notify the commission, the corners, the official scorekeeper of his decision on whether the foul was accidental or intentional and whether a point is to be taken away.

The ref has to see the poke and award that break or be alerted to it and decide to award it. He should have circled away and try to get the break what he did was declare he couldn't fight.

5 minutes is only awarded for lowblows unless they changed it. With eyepokes it is either you can see and the fight starts again or you can't and it is stopped. The ref missed a call but with that understood his decision was correct.

He said he couldn't see. Not he couldn't fight. It's the referees job to clarify whether that means he can continue to fight or not. He didn't do that. He ended the fight immediately like an idiot.

Although, I will give it to you that Villante screwed up by taking a knee.

Do you think a fight should be stopped if a fighter can't get up from guard in which they are eating soft punches(Sonnen vs Silva 1 for example)?

If a fighter is not in a position of likely harm to their health I see no reason for a fight to be stopped.

That is true, but the ref needs to see said foul take place for him to make such a determination.

When they do it's obvious because they usually instantly call time and address the fighter. In this case Gain simply dropped holding his face, the ref never indicated a foul.

I see it as a instant replay is needed thing because these guys just cannot see everything at every time.
