A single intentional low blow isn't met with a DQ, but it offers an IMMEDIATE and FAR more egregious unfair advantage. Many refs don't even DQ fighters whose corners illegally rush the ring.
Let the fighters fight whenever you can. If banned substances become an issue, let the commissions judge the result, and let the assosciation's, if any, order a rematch. The referee's number one goal should be to control the fight, yes, but number 2 should be to let the fighters fight.
Okay this is more along the lines of what I meant
although I'm oretty sure of your answer already, do you think the decision should of been made to a no contest. I also agree that turning it from a win to a loss would have been absaloutley ridiculous.
