    When Nog got caught with the kick Herring immediately jumped ontop of him and tried to land some bombs. Nog was able to block and dodge most of the shots before Herring got off him and asked him to get up.

    Nog got up but he was visable rocked and could barely stand. My question is if Heath had not jumped on top of him, the ref would have ask Nog to get up right away. At this time he was still rocked and didn't have the 20 seconds or so to recover even justs a little bit. At this point the ref would probably notice that Nog is seriously hurt an could have stopped the fight thus giving Herring the win.

    What are your thoughts?
     
  2. Herring doesn't have much power in anything aside from his kicks, so Nog could probably have just run around the ring and taken shots for the 20 seconds.

    If herring had just left nog alone, the ref might have stopped it.

    The guy could barely stand after Herring got off of him. I doubt Nog would have been able to run around for 20 seconds when he could barely stand.

    After seeing him take beatings time and time again Im inclined to think that he was ok...for Nog. I think darn near everyone else is a fish out of water at that point. Rarely do people come along who can take a beating like Nog.

    The refs have the incredible vantage point of being able to look at a fighters eyes. When they showed the replay of Nog getting dropped tonight you could see that he was still focused on Sylvia and was tracking the big goof as he was falling back.

    Herring got off Nog out of respect for Nog's ground game. Herring *should* have finished Nog. Hindsight is a bitch.

    Herring had a MUCH better chance of winning if he just stayed on the ground and kept pounding on his head and hoped the ref stopped it.
