Just circle the winner right? TUF decision explained

So did you watch TUF 19 last night? If you did you are still probably scratiching your head at the decision that was made. The fight was between Ian Stephens and Roger Zapata. It goes to the third round where referee Steve Mazagatti takes a point from Zapata for illegal elbows. I don’t know what the protocol really is, but it seems they made some new rule on the fly like circle the fighter that you thought won. Something like that.
