Some fighters wear that protective gear as to decrease the impact of body blows. The guy castillo beat was wearing padding, too, and I think whoever wears them is a punk. :cheeky4:

And the ref has no say in how high they're allowed?

the protector is not supposed to be above the belly botton . Castillo's opponenet I think was getting an unfair advatage especially against a guy like Castillo that goes to the body so much.

I agree.

And it was the refs fault for letting Ngoudjos corner get away with it & not adjusting it himself.

Agreed.

Blah blah blah I've met Herman twice, and he has a very short torso, so it may have looked worse than it was.

/just sayin'
/his arms look long for his body, as a result. LOL.
