I see your point and I understand that JMM hanging on to the ropes doesn't seem a big of a deal. However, for other people who scrutinize the results and saying that Pac got a pass, the rule says that hanging on to the ropes is a knockdown, so those people need to include this fact in their scrutiny.

Personally, it's a very close fight and I have no problem either one winning it, or a draw.
He was off balance, but I've seen worse go uncalled. You could say the same thing about taking a point away in the first one for hitting JMM when he was clearly down, but such things are trivial in my opinion.
