It wasn't until they aired the replay that fans started to say that Matt was out first. It does seem ironic that the worlds most dominant little boy was actually choked out and he won the title. I try to think of it this way. In a fight at a bar, who would you rather be, the guy who passes out first, or the guy who wakes up first?
Dam my sides hurt, I can't block body punches worth a crap.
No doubt. I was just wondering if there was an actual rule or if it's purely up to the ref. I guess to pose a hypothetical, say two guys head butted/punch/whatever each other at the same time and both visibly KOed. How would that be handled? I guess they would just wait to see who wakes up first?
