Why doesn't he get 5 minutes to recover?



Because there are maybe 2 or 3 competent referees in the entire sport.

The ref had a bad angle, he never seen the eye poke, so by him saying he can't see he's forced the referee to stop the fight. Just unfortunate

I might get this slightly wrong from memory but the rule is something like this:

If the fight is more than halfway done and it ends with an accidental foul, the portion of the fight that has been completed is scored normally (including the like 1 minute of the third round.)

The scores were: 30-28, 30-29, and 29-29

So the only way this makes sense to me is if

Judge 1: 10-9 1st and 2nd rounds, 10-10 3rd = 30-28
Judge2: 10-9 1st 10-10 2nd AND 3rd = 30-29
Judge3: 10-9 1st, 9-10 2nd, 10-10 3rd = 29-29

Looks like the scores heading into the 3rd were most likely 20-18, 20-19, and 19-19 in OSP's favour. Villante needed a finish in order to get better than a split draw, if he lost the round he would lose outright.

Dislocated thumb? Let him fight. Faber fought with two injured hands.

That's not exactly the 1st round KO that I expected, but I'll take it.

I said during the fight he looks like a lightweight Jon Fitch.
