It was a robbery, but Ross could have finished Diego many times if he wanted to. He crumpled under the pressure and paid for it big time.
This doesn't justify the bad decision, just makes it hard to feel bad for Ross.
As I said in my first post, neither fighter tried to finish. We can criticize both for a boring fight, but at the end of the day, someone has to win, and on the scorecard, it's obviously Pearson.
