Did The Second Knee Land?

I can't remember the names of the guys in the first fight, but to me it didn't look like that second knee hit him in the head. It looked like it hit his hand and he wanted an easy win.

Thoughts?

I didnt see a clear replay of the knee but from what I saw it looked to hit his hand and head also.

Not a blow he couldnt have recovered from.

I think he took the easy way out.

Congratulations you won!

Why should he continue the dumbass cheated if it landed. Don't fight with reckless abandon towards the rules if you don't want DQed. You shouldn't blame the victim in situations like this he was respecting the rules the other guy wasn't.

Yeah, that's not a fighters mindset at all. That's a very cowardly way out, if you can recover and keep fighting you do, you don't take a seat and get the other guy DQ'd. Get up and prove you're better, it's a bitch move to not fight.

You know I think it landed and I think people get a hard time in situations like this. To many times guys continue when they are not really in a condition to do so and end up losing. When your life goal is on the line you can`t let pride blind you.

But if you can get up you do, it's the other guy's life too, don't let it be taken from him if you can keep fighting.

It was two knees in a row, so it looked like it was completely intentional. As far I could tell it looked like it connected. If the guy could have fought on, I'm sure he would have. But either way you look at it from his perspective he caught an illegal knee and his hand was broke and he knew either way he wasn't going to win if he continued. If he imbellished his injuries it was probably a smart move on his part.

It isn't cowardly at all the other guy gaining an advantage by cheating makes it no longer a fair fight. He didn't get the other guy DQed, Uscola's own actions caused the DQ. It is very simple, if you want to avoid a DQ don't illegally foul someone.

He didn't do it intentionally, who the hell would throw two illegal knees on purpose? The first hit his body and the second didn't look like it landed clean. It is cowardly if you can keep fighting, it's a bitch move and I would lose any and all respect for anyone who would allow an opponent to be Dq'd if they could keep fighting., it's pathetic.
