Even Chael Sonnen said regarding Bones' toe "no one wants to win that way, its not a real win." Aldo had no reason to celebrate.
So now it's definetely about morals. Ok.
KZ got hurt during an exchange, not alone in a misstep. Cote got immediately incapacitated. Even attacking his face at that moment would be an assh0le move. KZ continued to fight. Totally different examples.
Sonnen said "no one wants to win that way" but "he would grab that belt and celebrate regardless without looking back". Not that Sonnen is a reference for anything as it appears he would consider a win while under heavy TRT a "real win".
Aldo was fighting through injury and pain himself from the start, missing one of his best weapons, unsure if the back up plan would pay off against a tough opponent in KZ. I say in a battle between two handicapped warriors, the winner has legitimate reasons to celebrate.
