Definitely needs to be a NC like everyone's said.

...But on another note, what happens to the win bonus if it becomes a NC? Does Burns lose the money? Or what if they somehow (won't happen, just hypothetical) rule Johnson the winner, does he get the win bonus? I'm just curious.

This is great because if it wasnt for the eye poke Johnson would have won the judges decision with ease. I still think he has a big future in the ufc.

The ruling was complete BS. If they don't overturn the decision and at least make it a NC then something needs to be done about the NSAC. It was obvious Johnson went down because of the eye poke and not a punch. Hopefully they do the right thing and overturn it.

To go along with everyone else, it should be deemed a NC at least.
How many warnings does a fighter get before a ref steps in and actually does something about it?

And kudos to Johnson for how he handled himself after the fight. I don't know that I could have been as generous.
