wow, you just don't get how devastating silva's hit was, do you? It's not a binary proposition, that if you're still technically conscious you can actually fight back. Irvin was so rocked, I don't think he sat there and thought, maybe I should cover up - that was an automatic instinct, and within less than a second he was getting barraged by pinpoint accurate punches to his head. You wanted him to "look to see what was going on"? You're probably more clueless than Irvin was immediately after the fight.
