While I agree with you I want to play devil's advocate a little bit. Why should the fighter who has won say 2 rounds already lose the fight because of an inadvertent blow that happens to be illegal. That fighter has already put in the work to win 2 rounds and made what is most likely a mistake and now they must lose?
