I don’t believe it’s the fighters responsibility to listen for the bell. There is a lot going on in there. It’s easy to miss it. #UFC208

It’s the refs job to protect the fighters. Just like when someone gets knocked out the ref is supposed to jump in to prevent more. #ufc208

Am I being biased or does anyone else think the ref did a lousy job of enforcing the rules and that Holly got robbed?
