The big example that comes to mind, is Asseurio Silva vs. Tim Sylvia at UFN 4. Fair is fair, Sylvia used Silva as a punching bag that whole match. But there was one point where Silva had Tim from behind, and he was obviously going for a suplex. Tim Sylvia grabs the cage, stopping the suplex. The ref says "Bad Tim, bad.", and that's the end of it. Assuerio Silva's suplexes are one of his biggest fight-ending weapons. I would love to know how that fight would have ended if Tim Sylvia hadn't *CHEATED*. Pisses me right off. I feel robbed.... I wonder who feels more robbed, me or Asseurio.
Totally agree and remember that. They should stop and restart in the centre when that happens.
