    She was getting lit up, it probably wouldn't have went any differently, but that was a bad stoppage imo. She didn't even drop after the flurry, she was hurt sure, but she could still continue.

    There's nothing about going to the ground, the ref stops the fight if you are protecting yourself well

    She could still intelligently defend herself, her inteligent defense has always looked like that she was still in it, she would have got knocked out for sure but she deserved another 15-30 seconds...

    If you make a poll I'm sure you're gonna get a lot of people agreeing with you...

    In the way that they wanted to see Ronda getting KO'd unconcious, and pounded on the ground.

    IMO it was OK.

    She is probably so thankful for that stop. Her heart isn't in fighting anymore. She didn't look like herself. I think she appreciates saving herself from some cosmetic surgery and lost brain cells.

    U cant be serious? Herb saved her unnecessary brain damage. She was done before he stepped in. Her eyes were floating. She was compleletely helpless.

    By this logic then Ronda's fight with mcmann was stopped early too

    Edmond clearly disagrees with the stoppage, and he knows no wrong.

    She obviously was rocked and nearly fall down but caught herself. 1 Clintch she could have recovered. #Badstoppage.

    I wish that it went a bit longer.

    That fight was like watching domestic violence in action.

    She couldn't reasonably defend herself.

    He even let it go longer than he probably could have to give her a chance.

    It literally looked like a professional fighter going to town on somebody who has taken a few boxercize classes.

    Just because you wanted to see more does not mean it was a bad stoppage. Their job is fighter safety.

    If you thought that was a bad stoppage you obviously know nothing about mma period.
