Quinones  dosnt have great maths skills- he had his hand up through all the scores being read out... if the judges are scoring it 29-26, and youve had 2 points deducted... does he think he did so well the judges wanted to give it to him 31-26 before the deduction? youve got to know you havnt won going into that decision.

I'm not going to turn an event discussion thread into a flame war with you because you randomly decide to pick me out of the multiple people who had the opinion that deducting 2 points was a little excessive. I'm sorry you get your feelers hurt in the majority of the threads we both post in, but I'm going to go ahead and nip this in the bud now.

I thought the 2-point deduction was just. The headbutt was not only illegal, it was intentional. John McCarthy does not mess around when it comes to what's acceptable and what's not in a fight. I'm sure that in the pre-fight instructions both fighters were made more than aware of what the Rules Of The Octagon are.

On a side-note. I don't care who agrees or disagrees. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and there is no reason for personal attacks on anyone.

I wish more refs would deduct points when there's a blatant or repetitive foul. Cuz other fighters see "oh he grabs the fence and doesn't get a point decuted, so I can do it and get away with it. Send a message.

Upon re-examining the headbutt it did look intentional, and if the rules call for a 2 point deduction for an intentional foul, I guess so be it. I personally feel like 1 point would have been a more just punishment. By deducting 2 points from a fighter you're basically saying "You better have won every round clearly" or "You better finish" I'll be honest, the only referee I can remember deducting 2 points is Big John though. On two different occasions, the one tonight, and in a heavyweight fight on a Bellator event he took two points away from a guy for blindly throwing a hammerfist at a guy's balls. I found that deduction to be accurate if not too light.

@ CthulhuJones - I don't know if that's what the rules called for. I think it's up to the referee to decide how many points a fighter should/can be deducted for a foul. I've never read the rulebook myself, but I've heard somewhere that a continued unintentional foul (if the other fighter can continue) is a 1-point deduction, and an intentional foul can be up to 3 points (depending on the severity of the foul). Don't quote me on that, but I've heard that.
