Weak card

Co-main was a strawberry floating mess of an illegal knee stoppage reversed into a TKO and Rumble fought like an absolute idiot

Cormier saved it by shouting WHO WHO WHO and "he's ineligible" every time they tried to mention Jones to him :lol:

The women's fight was temporarily called off the other day by the NY commission because one of the fighters had breast implants. Dana White was furious at the media for reporting it had been called off even though it had and the ruling commission had said so :| :lol:

So I'm a bit confused. Is there some kind of new rule change. The old rule was, no knees to a grounded fighter with the stipulation being, if a hand is touching the floor then you can't throw a knee to the head. So what has it changed too? both hands must touch the ground for a knee to the head to be illegal? I'm assuming based on the replay/footage both weidmans hands weren't properly touching the floor, therefore the second knee was indeed legal.

I've not seen the fight yet but apparently it was a legal knee and I've seen a lot of people saying Weidman was milking it to the doctor and expecting it to be an illegal knee so the fight would be ruled a no contest.

New rule is supposed to be two palms down to be grounded but judges call it on fingers and Weidman was down when it was thrown but not when it landed.
Also under NY rules refs can't use replay but Mirgliotta left the ring and spoke to McCarthy who was watching one.

It's a total clusterfuck but if Weidman did ask for a stoppage assuming he'd win by DQ then he deserves the loss.

That clears it up for me thanks. I read Mousasi sensed that Weidman was trying to touch the mat so he used his arms to lift him up then threw the knee. It's kind of a bullshit tactic using your hand to touch the ground to escape a knees strike anyway, it's as bad as grabbing the fence imo.

Massive WTF at the main and co-main. Between Rumble retiring and Weidman and his illegal legal knees, Jesus. I definitely think Weidman was hurt bad and trying to milk the 5 minute rule, but it backfired big-time.

Was bummed Pearl Gonzalez lost too because god damn this woman needs to be in every card
