    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    The Hell is This?

    Debacle.

    Who turns their back and wanders off mid-fight?

    How is that fighter alone confronting fans?

    What, is he taunting them?

    How does he get labeled by a punch that was telegraphed so hard that Western Union is considering suing?

    Perhaps the fighter that turned his back heard something and believed the round was finished?

    The punch isn't all that telegraphed, since the fighter wasn't looking in that direction, plus he was in a position where he couldn't dodge in any pratical way.

    Maybe he was looking a bit to the left, on first viewing I thought he was looking straight at the attacker. He could certainly cover up, jump off the turnbuckle, etc.

    Well yes but reflexes are much slower when you aren't expecting a punch vs during a match.

    I have no idea what to think of this. I'm actually sitting here arguing with myself about it, to the point that I may start trying to bite my own face.

    One half of my brain is saying that is the most unsportsmanlike, dickish thing I have ever seen.

    The other side of my brain is screaming that these are professional fighters in a legit competition. They should both be fighting to win.

    There was 2:40 left in the round, the ref hadn't called a stop to the action, and the blow that was landed was perfectly legal.

    Serious question here, and I'm hoping some experienced fighters will jump in with some sort of explanation... absent a misunderstood or misinterpreted cue from the ref making him believe the round was over, what in the hell could possibly explain why that guy would just stop fighting and turn his back to his opponent.

    I think the knee to the head left Grigorian disoriented.

    He just ate a big knee. Maybe he was concussed. People do wacky things when they're concussed.

    True, he was late to react, and if he wasn't directly clowning the guy, he'd have no time to gauge his intentions.
