You seem to react as I did when I saw this fight live the first time. I thought that Matt put Carlos on the cage to set up a big slam. It did seem to take Matt a long time to complete the slam. After the slam, when Matt popped up and Carlos didn't, I assumed the slam had worked (sometimes it doesn't when you are in the triangle choke) and Matt had won. 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?
If neither could continue, regardless of if they woke up right away or not they would probably go to the judges or just give it a no contest and call it a tie depending on how far into the fight they were
