Usually in a fight, we see the ref say something, motion with their hands, or some action to let us know something happened against the rules. What if Brock didn't hear him? The crowd erupted when Brock took Mir down and treated his head like a beach ball at a Kenny Chesney concert. You heard Herb say a few times that he was going to take a point away if he kept it up and Kongo did so he was punished. From the time Steve could of said something to the time he stopped the fight was what 3 or 4 seconds? And also going on is Frank turning his head around not to get hit. A lot was going on and in almost every fight I've ever seen, you clearly hear/see the ref warn a fighter and generally warn them again and if a point is taken away, it isn't with in the first warning. Again if I'm wrong, just show me the fights that it happened in. Because the Brock fight is the only fight where a deduction like this happened so fast.
Please, don't reopen ancient history. It's done, it's proven it's over. There is a slomo audio gif somewhere on the site where you can hear Maz warn brock, where lesnar looks at him and goes right back to flailing away without any form or concern. In short, it's not the officials responsibility to give multiple warnings, it's the fighter's responsibility to know the rules.
You're also confusing what Kongo lost the point for. It was for the knee to the face, not the strikes to the back of the head. He got two warnings for that, which is bullshit. He should have lost a point for the strikes, and been DQ'd for the knee, if Dean was doing what he should have.
