  1. GET RID OF NATE "The Cheat" (forever) says:

    Look like some illegal shots to me but Browne probably would have won anyway.

  2. Seanzky says:

    Kenny and John called it right. Only one landed, but Gabe was already limp when it landed. Notice he didn’t defend after the first clean elbow nor the second. The last elbow was to the OTHER side of Gabe’s head. It shouldn’t still controversial that Travis accidentally landed ONE elbow behind the head.

  3. The Way Of The Dutchman says:

    Illegal. Should be a DQ or a NC.

  4. bob says:

    mostly to the side of the head, i only counted 2 to the back of the head

  5. Joshua Macri says:

    I saw 2 1/2 good ones to the side of the head. They started striking the back as ganzaga fell and his body shifted positions. I wouldn’t call turning the back of my head into an elbow defending myself. That’s just my thoughts anyhow. I know there are a lot of very good arguments to be made.

  6. MIKE EIB says:

    well besides its being back of the head strikes they were also 12-6 elbow strikes and those are illegal. should be a DQ.

  7. Guy Tough says:

    I really don’t see how this is controversial at all. It was a beautiful knock out. I did, however, want Gonzaga to win. :(

  8. Isaiah d says:

    Any shot behind the ear is not allowed. specially a 12-6 elbow to the back on the head/ spine connection. Does a fighter have to die or be paralyzed before the example is made to fighters to pick there shots better. If a low blow to the cup is placed in the middle of a combo the action is stopped and the fighter is warned. There was no warning. This is the same if not worse then the Alessio Sakara fight vs Patrick Cote because of the elbows and them being heavy weights. Fighters need to be held more accountable for these types of incidents to change the evolution of fighting to be more safe.

  9. 757 says:

    DQ was in order.

  10. Inyoface says:

    If that move was legal, GSP would lose every fight.

  11. lalo says:

    legal or illegal is an horrible way to win..knock out of the night? WTF…!!!..i think travis is not proud of it..don’t make sense the side or the back of the head..that is not a “clean” strike..one inch or two don’t make diference ..that area is delicate..like someone says if that move was legal GSP or every grappler don’t have a chance in the ufc….REMATCH !!!
