I'm surprised that no one mentions it. It was. Can you imagine if fights were stopped like that when someone was hurt on feet? It would be called boxing, not MMA. I still won't ever forget Herb standing up GG and CC when GG was rearranging CC's face with his elbow, which led to CC getting ktfo cuz his vision was blurry from those blows. And the list goes on. Crocop is back, biatches! It was looking pretty bad for Rousey, but you can't stop a fight just because of that. You have to intelligently defend yourself, but in a combat fight, especially when you are standing up, you get lit up at times but you have to be allowed to fight through it and you do. One thing is to get into exchanges and get hurt and be wobbly on feet and have punches go through , and whole another to not defend yourself intelligently defend yourself against significant damage for considerable amount of time. I mean, I never bought into Ronda's hype or anything to do with WMMA, and it was sickening what Ronda was being made out to be, but seriously, it's even more uncool that so many people just abandon her bandwaggon which seemed full of people after two losses and just kick someone when she's down. She was getting lit up like some Christmas tree, and no it wasn't looking good at all, but it was an early stoppage. Like, no doubt. I have been on here a long time and I don't think I ever made a thread about early stoppage, because well, it can be a judgemental call either way and can be difficult to know exactly when to stop, and who gives a fuck it happened and nothing will change, but usually when there is a questionable stoppage, there's usually a thread or two about it, but there's none.
