That hurts. Part of me thinks the UFC may want to save that money, but probably more as a clear signal of sportsmanship. It is a decent chunk of money.
I'm glad they gave a backstory as to why he always holds on to the hold longer than necessary at times. I also agree that I did not feel any malice, unlike with Sobral or say Frank Shamrock after he kicked off Phil Baroni...haha. The latter being slightly different, but you know what I mean.
Frank Shamrock was criticized for pushing an unconscious Phil Baroni off him using his leg rather than allowing the referee to pull Phil off Frank. In a post-fight interview question regarding the incident, Shamrock stated that "[Phil] was heavy on top of me... he was squishing the life out of me... he was laying on my leg and on my chest... that's it. And I thought it looked better on camera."
