    Gravity is what makes us stick to the floor at all, and the nature and amount of contact we have with that gigantic rock is half the battle.

    EDIT: Damnit, seventeen people said this. I should refresh before I let a response sit.

    game-set-match. After that remark I asked my wife if I could have my balls back for a little while. So I dusted them off and went looking for pics. I haven't found any yet though.

    You don't know how gravity works do you?

    Your wife has the nicest set of knockers I've seen on a normal lady. You should give us those until you find pictures of Shaubs' bitch... you know... to tie us over.

    Don't try to reason with him.

    No, I just know that F=G(m1m2/r^2).

    Enlighten me, how does mass attract mass?

    So it took you 2 hours to find that on google? That's pretty ridiculous.

    I'm asking you, how do you think that gravity from a standing stomp/downward elbow helps in the impact?

    Do you know how gravity works?

    From the bottom the 'downward' elbow hits the top of the head. From the mount the elbow lands on the face. And like in Jon Jones' case, it can land with the point of the elbow directly on the eyeball. I can see a big difference.

Yes, he broke the rules, and learned a hard lesson in the process. It just seems to me that the entire situation would have been avoided if they had called it earlier, because Hamill was clearly unable to make any meaningful attempts at escape or defense during much of the pounding he was receiving, even before the illegal elbows were thrown.

    Clearly that fight should have been called earlier. Hamil was defenseless and not responding for awhile before the spiked elbow. The referee clearly blew it!

    rewatch the fight. He actually stopped a number of the shots with his left arm pushed up. He was doing a better job than most at being defensive. However, that said, he needs to work on mount escapes a lot. Also, while he was stopping a lot of shots he was doing it with his arm extended straight up in Jones' face. Jones had AMPLE opportunity to armbar if he wanted to. Of course I suppose you could say why give up position.

Am I correct in what you're saying? If so I agree.
    Yes.

    Horizontal, downward, upward, etc... are directions in relation to your own body. Not the ceiling or the floor.

    Anyway, the reality is that the DQ was unjustified.

    Points were docked for the illegal blow and then Hammil could not continue due to his shoulder, and said as much, not due to his face from those elbows. Therefore Jones should have gotten the W.
