The match-up between Ovince St. Pierre and Dominick Reyes at UFC 229 came to a decisive ending but in the record books it will be called something else.
Reyes stunned OSP at the five minute mark of round three with a decisive knockout before turning to walk away after the horn sounded. As OSP laid on the canvas in a heap, the referee warned him that he couldn’t stay down and be saved by the bell. That’s when the confusion began.
Awkwardly regaining his footing, he was deemed unable to continue so instead, the referee stopped the fight. As a result, instead of awarding Reyes with the knockout win, he was instead named the winner by decision knockout.
