And as for the "back of the head" punches... threads about this fight and Vitor/Akiyama show me that most mma fans don't understand what is a foul and what is not, neither fight had illegal shots, at least not so blatantly illegal as to be called, at worst they were borderline and in neither case effected the outcome.



I agree that it didn't really change the outcome, and that niether were blatant either. But you have got to be out of your mind if you think those punches didnt land to the back of the head. They are clearly a foul. Akiyama/Vitor moreso.

They were behind the ear, not on the spine. Not a foul. The refs understand the difference, most fans seem to not.

Well then i'd have to say that most ref's do not know the difference. Because what you refer to as behind the ear, always begets referees to warn the fighter.
