Those punches to the gloves weren't doing anything. It was basically a stalemate in that position. Faber could have enjoyed a nice of tea in that position. Ridiculous stoppage but not surprised as it's become the norm to have controversy.

Oddly enough I am more of a fan of boxing than mma. but Faber was still doing jackshit to defend himself after being knocked onto queer street a couple of times.

You claim to be a fan of boxing and mma but according to you, blocking punches with a glove isn't defending. Shuddup.

Terrible stoppage. This isnt the sport it used to be.

This is why I always watch ONE FC, where they have real fights with real endings.

Fair stoppage.

Turtle up = benefit of the doubt to the attacking fighter.

That was before they had fully figured out their rules. It was when they had the weird "ask the ref"" system.

Terrible stoppage, however it was clear Faber had nothing for Barao. Would have been KO'd eventually.
Those hammerfists were doing nothing though. Even if you're turtling like that to clear your head, if your opponents strikes aren't doing anything, surely that's effective defence?
Look at Mir surviving the first round against Overeem and compare it to Barao bopping Fabers glove. Ridiculous.
