    Agreed.

    Does it happen that guys recover from that and fight on? yes

    But most of the time they just take an unnecessary beating that could cause permanent injury

    There was nothing wrong with the stoppage. The kick was followed up with a killer right and then a left. Brunson was done son.
    I thought it was odd the way the commentators ignored the body shot that set up the head kick. Anyway, well done by Souza. I still think he's been over-rated in the past but it will be interesting to see how a somewhat less heavy and plodding Jacare does going forward.

    Admittedly, I'd have to rewatch kongo/barry to refresh my memory before arguing. Haven't seen it since the original viewing.

    Even if the example was bad though, the point still stands.

    If a fighter is half ko'd to the point that they have no balance, they are done.

    There are instances when they look good enough to be allowed to continue, and there are others where it needs to be stopped for safety sake.

    Brunson was done. He had zero chance of staying in the fight from that point, and it wouldn't have been safe for the ref to let it go. He couldn't even get up after the stoppage.

    Great stoppage.
