It's conceivable for it to have been a conscious decision reached through logical means and not a mistake.

In this case, the judge (I think it was Weisfeld) would have needed to see the 9th as being so one-sided as to already warrant the rare non-KD 10-8 scoring...with a knockdown on top of that making it 10-7.
