Arlovski attempted that kick, but it didn't land. It barely even grazed Cruz if anything. Pe De Pano even pleaded to Dean that he was fine. After Herb warned Arlovski, and made sure Pe De Pano was alright, he should have instantly stepped away instead of standing there. Cruz chose to stay on the ground. As soon as he did FINALLY step away, Arlovski waited for about 5-7 seconds...and hit Marcio with a BOMB. After that shot, Cruz rolled a bit...but he was done. Arlovski rained down with shots to the ear and right above the ear. I'll admit Andrei hit Cruz with a couple small hammer fists to the back of the head...but they weren't heavy or damaging. The rest of those shots were to the side of the head by the ear - which isn't illegal. Pe De Pano was already done anyway.
Oh, and about the cage grabbing...everyone does it with instinct. If it was such a big deal anyway, Herb would have said something, but he was busy trying to protect Cruz's head...so it's irrelevant that his was on the fence at that point.
