It's so easy to get excited and throw punches like crazy when your opponent is covering up, but you shouldn't be able to finish a fight with an illegal (or several illegal) blow.
vitor wasnt meaning to hit rich in the back of head, rich turtled and rolled his head around. i doubt vitor could have thrown strikes to the head without hitting the back of the head at least once in that context.
and imho it would have been more dangerous for the ref to halt the action and let rich recover after those blows, and take more punishment. he couldnt even remember being dropped. and having the fight called a DQ or NC would have ruined the whole PPV- he was in stoppage territory as soon as he dropped so vitor deserved the win. just my opinion.
