The head bounce on the canvas put him out for good... damn that was a hard bounce... like getting kicked twice.

I don't even see how you could call it illegal. He wasn't intentionally throwing at a downed opponent and it hit him while he slipped... makes me wonder if he was just throwing leg kick like he had been doing all fight. If they called it a DQ I would have been very surprised and pretty pissed... but than again, Erick Silva got the shaft....

For a second there it looked like Matthews wasn't even sure if he was knocked out or not.

i believe he was throwing a leg kick to finish out the combo, and his head just fell in place

@Greg I would bet. He had been throwing that combination all night. I think the slip helped him win that fight. Too bad for me, I had Matthews to win by decision... but the outcome was worth watching. Great KO.

I didn't think it was a slip, thought that left hand stumbled him pretty good.

Wow, 50% correct and no perfect so far this week.  Worst start ever through just over 2 events.  Might as well have gone 3TKO on every fight.
