    Default Abel Trujillo Didnít Get the Win at UFC Fight Night 27, but Heís Going to Be Paid

    http://www.mmaweekly.com/abel-trujil...id-like-he-did



    The second was more of the same, and as the frame came to a close, at 4:57 to be exact, Trujillo had Bowling in a prone position, fully grounded on his backside, turtling up, as he unleashed a bevy of straightforward knees.

    To most watching at home, the knees seemed to illegally strike Bowling in the face, which would be “strikes to the head of a downed opponent.” Such strikes are illegal in mixed martial arts in America.

    That’s why when the referee stepped in to halt the action, very little protest occurred. The strikes were deemed illegal, the fight was halted due to Bowling’s inability to continue, and the bout was ruled a no-contest.

    However, the one man that disagreed with the decision is also the man who writes the paychecks, UFC president Dana White. White took to Twitter almost instantaneously to voice his displeasure over the decision to rule the bout a no-contest.

    “Both those knees were legal!!! Trujillo should have won,” White wrote on Twitter.

    It didn’t take long for Trujillo to respond, tweeting, “(in reply to White) thanks boss!!!

    Trujillo went on to demean his opponent and claim he was looking for a way out.

    “Eventhough I got a NO CONTEST I know in my heart I broke Roger & he found a way out!!! Feels like a Victory a lil bit you feel me!!!”

    Many pundits were shocked at the announcement, especially since the knee, the second one to be exact, appeared to have hit Bowling in the face.

    However, at the post-fight press conference, White reiterated that the knee was, in fact, legal.

    “It literally was not illegal,” he said
    “It was not an illegal knee. That kid won his fight. I’m going to pay him his win,” he proclaimed.

    “The second knee hit him in the shoulder.”

    I see the second knee hitting him in his left pectoral muscle and his thigh pushing his head back, creating the illusion of the strike hitting his face.

    I guess it depends on how you define the strike's location. Initial contact was made in the chest/shoulder area, but it did ride up and contact the face. Its like those inside leg kicks on the matt hughes style shorts, that ride up and contact the groin. If I had to make a call, Id say inadvertent illegal strike, and NC is the right call in the situation.

    On a related topic, unless you're knees are pinpoint accurate, this is a terrible idea. Id imagine it sucks to lose a W because of a poor choice of strikes.

    Soo uhhh Chael should have been MW champ via DQ????

    Watch a GIF of Andy/Chael 2 and plz tell me you feel same about this fight.
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.

    I think that fight was close but quite honestly, I'm still not sure where that shot landed. This one on the other hand looks completely intentional.
