He got slapped up high on the chest, maybe even nicked Ovy's chin a little. Ovy then sold it.

That's a situation where, if anything, you call a penalty for slashing on Richards and then an unsportsmanlike conduct for diving on Ovy. Ovy could have continued without any deferral, the slap was not overwhelming, and he embellished.
