I agree. I think it is a dumb rule, although I do understand why they have it b/c like White said when a fighter is really down they need it. I don't understand why the ref can't make a judgement call, I mean they already make the judgement of a tko, so in theory couldn't the ref say "knee away", or "no knee or kick", but I guess it puts even more on a ref in a sport that already demands split second decision.
I apolgize for that paragraph.
