Would I not be at fault for breaking the law if the cops were to busy eating donuts too arrest me or chase me down?
Sakara should have some self restraint to refrain from throwing illegal punches.. You don't continue to thrown them until a point is taken - after already being warned.
In the situation the two fighters were in he shouldn't even need a warning really. The back of the head is the most likely strike point when the two fighters were where they were. As soon as the opening was there he started throwing hammerfist like a spastic child wanting more icecream. If he'd exercised some caution he might have landed a few good legal shots instead of 8-9 illegal ones. A DQ is the only solution to that scenario.
Hating on Anderson Silva before it was the cool thing to do.
The idea of a "true number one contender" is the stupidiest MMA idea to be perpetuated by fans and media, EVER.
