I think we're discussing extra shots after the ref says stop or after the bell and subs held after the person tapped or after the ref signaled the fight over. While I agree it is very sportsmanlike to stop punching after you know a guy is out before the ref realizes it, but both enter the cage/ring knowing that the rules allow for a person to go bananas on you until the ref says stop.
