Harris Falcao 1st Round Ending - Clock Issue?

I'm surprised no one has discussed this.

What happened at the end of the first round? The clock was at 8 seconds, faded away, and then a second later we heard the horn. It seems like the fight should've ended via submission there, but the horn caused Murg to step in and break them up.

I didn't notice that.

However, I don't think the clock on the screen is official. They've made mistakes with it all the time.

Regardless, Footsteps held the choke a little long after the horn. Big Dan was about to reach in for the Semtex choke.

Harris got Zack Morris'd.

The ACs have their own timekeepers, don't they? So I can't imagine there'd be a conspiracy here.

i thought it was just me who noticed this. you can see harris start tapping with tiny taps then he hears the clap from the blocks of wood and decides to hang on at which point i thought hed go to sleep with 10 seconds left but next thing you know the horn is going off and murgliota breaks the choke. seemed like 4 or 5 seconds go by past the the clap then the horn sounds not the usual 10.
