First warning for a Shields punch

Just noticed Santiago got a warning for something Shields did against GSP, throwing open handed punches. Guess the commish or UFC is getting on top of that, as it has have a huge impact on a fighter.

I think sheilds should be the only fighter allowed to use open hand strike. His striking game is pathetic for a professional. He has no power no nothing. His slap is probably as good as his punch.

People get warned about throwing out open hand feelers a lot in MMA because it causes eye pokes. The problem is guys throwing open hands like jabs not palm strikes.
