Bloody ending to this fight! Bivol hands are really fast for a LHW.
On the second KD in rd 3 Bivol hit Berridge while he was taking a knee. Just like last week’s Brown-Williams fight. Though this time no foul was called. This happens quite often anyway, but I think it should be the referee’s duty to call a clear “down!” or “stop!” as soon as the KD occurs. In the heat of the action, it can be hard for a fighter to realize his opponent is down and/or to stop unless he is commanded to.
