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 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.
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)
