I like to give fighters every chance, like EVERY chance (where people accuse me of just bleed worship) but IMO the stoppages weren't too bad tonight.

I think they're just making some changes within the sport. I agree with it 100% and i prefer seeing fights actually get stopped when the fighter stops defending himself rather than getting beat senseless till he dies or getting beat senseless till his opponent gasses

Just couple of recent poor stoppages that come to mind.

There wasn't one bad stoppage tonight.

Go watch some Faces of Death videos to get your weird blood fetish fix.

there were an abnormal amount of slightly early stoppages, but other than the miller confusion, i wasnt mad about any. the joe proctor one for example, was a bit early, but totally defensible and understandable

they all seemed eager to jump the gun tonight though, good thread

Just watched the Proctor/Salas fight.

Proctor winner by knockdown.

Is this an effect of being on a Fox channel? Like they don't want unnecessary violence and bloodshed to keep censors and the FCC happy?
