Brendan Schaub's unecessary punch

His body language after dropping CroCop shows that he knew he was out, and from other angles it's clear how CroCop was unconcious from the moment he got hit because he fell in an awkward way so it was blatantly obvious.

He relaxes, pauses, and then throws a punch which as far as I'm concerned proves what a complete asshole the guy is. There was no need for it, he knew Cro Cop had fallen in an unconcsious heap on the mat.

I agree, it was definitely unnecessary, i don't know why he wasn't called out on it because it was pretty damn obvious

Everything looks bad in slow motion.

You have absolutely no idea what was going through BS's head or whether he realized he was finished. The ref hadn't jumped in yet so the punch was fine.

Refs fault in my opinion but I get your point. no need for that really but had to make sure.

I also thought that punch was to the back of the head (although unintentional and a fair few Ko's come from that type of punch)

I scored it a draw had i not ben finished btw.

I don't feel that strongly about this punch. The fight wasn't stopped... and technically you "never know" what will happen. Even tho I think everybody knew Cro Cop was out yet again... I don't think Schaub should be penalized.

The ref didn't stop the fight yet. Nothin wrong here...

If you wanna cry about something. Cry about Rampage vs. Wanderlei 3.

Fight til the ref stops the fight

Yes he might have known Cro Cop was out but he would have been more foolish to stand back and assume the fight was over only for Cro Cop to roll and get up having not been as hurt as he first appeared.

I agree the ref was too slow to react to the heavy knock down and I don't really blame Schaub for throwing an extra punch (especially when your veins are surging with adrenaline)

I don't buy this fight till the ref stops it excuse. Why is it that Shogun can stop punching Machida when he goes out yet Schaub can casually approach a crumpled CroCop and not know he's unconcious?

It's not like Hendo doing his dive in after he drops someone, Schaub knew and still did it.
