Was That A Shark During Filipe And Kanoa's Heat?

It’s a little hazy, there’s not enough data but we know which way we're leaning. However, nobody punched it so 100-percent certainty cannot be obtained. During Filipe Toledo and Kanoa Igarashi’s heat, past the green, er, blonde noughties recording artist hairdo a rather large fin appeared before the horizon. We’ve been sent a few screen shots of this moment accompanied by a subject line asking: Shark at J-Bay? After watching it a few times, we'd figure it best to ask the audience.

Let’s play a game. Take your forefinger and move the cursor to the 17:43 mark. You should be at 16:39 in heat eight of round two. Actually, first go to the 16:30 marker and drink in Filipe’s claim following his 10-point ride and consider a Brazilian Marshall Mathers. Now, head back to the moment we’ve all been somewhat waiting for since July 19th, 2015. Advert your eyes to the right corner of the screen and answer us, was that a shark?
