Wow dude I do see that now that you mention it. Maybe Kos wasn't just being an idiot. im sure he wasn't as hurt as he thought but from that angle you can see what looks like his right knee retracting from an illegal shot before the big swing and miss with the left one.

I doubt we will ever know for sure but yeah that is interesting. Good find dude plus rep.

Wow, so he actually got hit with an illegal knee. It wasn't the worst hit I've seen, but still illegal. His head bounced back and he unintentionally dodges the big left knee because he's campagning for a point deduction as Rogan said. I guess he's not as full of sh*t as I thought...

hard to see if that right knee was even intentional or if he was just getting his feet planted and Kos hit his head on the knee as he was driving forward.
That knee does look unintentional, seems like Kos is trying to go for his legs at the same time Daley is planting for that second knee that missed. I think it was mainly the follow in for the knee and kos moving forward as well that made the impact.

and the funny part is that I doubt the ref would have seen that, bad move by Daley in even attempting to throw the knee. bunch of what if's here, what if he didnt throw the knee? would he win the fight with kos backing away like that? would he get cut from the ufc? would he get facing gsp now?

lol

That knee actually hit him around the inner eye/nose, After the knee, you could see a small small cut where that knee hit. Nobody seemed to catch that on fight night.
No that cut on the bridge of the nose is visible before Kos takes his back (before the knee). Im 100% positive of that. There's a little scrape at the top middle of his forehead that is likely the result of the knee. The cut on the nose is from an elbow from the bottom I think.

Anybody have gifs of different angles? Because in watching replays from different angles without Mirg in the way it looks like Daley is just hoping back. If the right knee did hit Kos it was only like a inch of travel (and to me it doesn't look like it does at all).

I'm sorry, but I'm not seeing it. The timing of Koscheck's reaction is all wrong for the knee that they showed over and over. But I'm still not seeing the knee that you talk about. I see where Kos's has his faced pressed against Daley's leg while he's trying to get up. But I don't see any knee landing that would match the reaction. I'm not defending Kos, I think he's a total douchenozzle so I was sure he was just being a baby and playing to get a point taken away. But now that I see this GIF, the timing is way wrong but I don't see the right knee that you speak of. Regardless, Kos is still a game playing whiner in my book, but I would like it if someone could point out what I'm obviously missing.

Right when Dan pulls away you can see Daleys knee pulling back from Kos face and Kos head bouncing back. :thumbsup:

Wow, good catch. You can see his head bounce back from the knee and he was already pulling his head back and turning to the ref while the second (left) knee was being thrown. For those who says it was a weak knee, don't let your hate for Kos blind you. An illegal knee, is an illegal knee. It doesn't matter if it was weak or not.
