Certainly. It used to be no reff stoppage, it was just a fight to the end. I remember one fight in the begining a guy was juct kicking some other bloke in the head while he was down. He walked away with his hands in the air, and he noticed the other guy struggling to get up, so he turned around and ran back a put a full force kick straight in his face.
