I'm torn on the instigator. Richards obviously instigated the fight, so it's not the wrong call, but that's almost never called. It's not like Richards dropped the gloves and just started swinging, he challenged Morrow and they fought, and that happens all the time without the instigator getting called.
It's an automatic call when guys chase down a guy who made a "clean" hit.
This was an obvious instigator call, and they are trying to call it more often to get rid of the BS after every big clean hit.
