He gets kneed. Referee calls it an illegal knee. He gets up to 5 min to rest. Then the commentators and some other ref start watching the video. They see it was a legal knee. The commentators then say there is no replay in NY.
This is the part that doesn't make sense to me. The ref outside the ring then tells the ref inside the ring it was a legal knee. They keep allowing Weidman to rest. Rogan has a ****ing coronary about it being a legal knee and demanding answers. After about a minute of this they call off the fight awarding a TKO.
If there is no replay in NY, shouldn't the referee's call of an illegal knee stand? Weidman given the time to rest, and then go from there?
I'm not saying Weidman should have gotten the DQ. He definitely played himself looking for the easy way out. But if there is no replay, shouldn't the ref's call stand?
Absolutely. At the VERY least they should have restarted the fight and this wouldn't be as big a deal. Because of this the fight will probably be overturned to a NC.
Did the Doctor or the Commission call the fight off??
