Go back and watch the clock and countdown with it at the end of the first round. AA got hit when the ref should have been stepping in but the time keeper is a moron. I'm not at all saying it wouldn't have gone down the exact same way in round 2 but the biggest amount of punishment he took was at the end of the first past when the bell should've rung.

The grossest part was when AA took out his mouth piece, in the picture. I had no idea he possibly broke his jaw during the fight.

The first round is the only part worth watching. It gets pretty sad from there.

I was wondering what was wrong with Arlovski he looked goofy for some reason.

Me either. Arlovski is a tough, tough dude. Dont know many people that could have fought 2 more rounds with a jaw like that!

i thought something looked weird about his jaw. it sounded like rumble injured his hand and maybe his leg in the fight too. very brutal for both fighters. rumble was doing really good in the stand up but when he kept shooting for TD's even after he had landed big shots on AA i figured something was wrong.

The clock on the screen isn't the real clock. The real clock is the one controlled by the timekeeper. Sometimes they're off if theres a time out for something or the screen clock doesn't start at the same time as the bell dings to start the fight.

That sucks :( My fav guy put up a good fight though. I'm sure he'll be back again. His chin has been holding up nicely lately though, WAR AA!

Honestly didn't even thing about that, but they last night they definitely called for 10 seconds when the clock was at 8 or 9 seconds and then it went for another 15. Good point about the clock though. I've never really thought about that. I've always assumed it was on point. Gotta be difficult with low blows and other fouls.

There have been timekeeper fuck-ups, like with Harris vs Falcao where the round was 4:55 due to an error. If AA could prove there was an issue, it's actually possible to get it overtuned to a No Contest. If you're bored, stopwatch it from bell to bell and see if it was accurate.
