If you can't see the wrist wrap scrape across Koschek's eye, you may need to visit an optometrist or get a new monitor.

So he wasn't eye poked. Cool, glad you agree.

Either way, it's hardly conclusive, by any measure now is it?

The knee obviously lands on teh right side of his face dude...

I didn't say anything about an eye poke, nor did I say you did.

What, the scrape of the wrist strap across the eye? Refer to my previous post for what to do in the event that you're unable to see it.

No, a video that clearly shows Kos' eye getting scraped, a video that shows Kos instantly showing discomfort and pain in said eye, and a video that clearly shows redness and swelling in said eye. Hardly proof at all if you ask me.

Ouch! But JSYK, the hardcores won't except this. They'll question whether it actually touched the eye, or that it may have just come within an inch or so. It's all part of a derangement syndrome. A pict isn't going to do it. Only severe reprogramming will work—tying them to a chair and taping their eyelids open while showing the clip for 3 straight days. Otherwise you're wasting your time.

I just watched this fight last night after hearing all the controversy. This is the way I see it:

Something happened to Kos. Not sure if it was a poke but his eye didn't get like that on it's own. Either way it was unintentional.

Rumble pulls a illegal knee.

Kos accidentally pokes Rumble trying to paw a punch.

Kos pulls one of the most intentional eye pokes I have seen to date.

Normally I would cry foul on Kos but the illegal knee earlier in round 1 makes me think it was just evening the playing field. Good fight!
