Why aren't u getting what I'm saying? I'm sitting here, very plainly telling you that they should change the rules to factor in the time left. Simple, right?
And YOU, cluedart that you are, are telling me "there is no mention of the amount of time left in the round in that criteria." Are you trolling me right now, because it's hard to believe someone couldn't get what I'm saying. I KNOW the rules! I'm saying they should change them. wtf is wrong with you?
You didn't know the rules when you were shocked that they aren't supposed to take the time left in the round into account a few posts back. Who's trolling here?
It's not in the rules which makes it a good stoppage. It shouldn't be in the rules because rounds are an artificial construct designed to allow fighters to maintain a good pace, not to allow them to escape finishes. The fact that the bell can save a fighter is an unfortunate consequence of them, not something to be embraced. Therefore, the proximity to the end of the round should not have a bearing on a fight being stopped.
