    I dont know about that one folks, while he was hurt, he was not out, he was moving his head, he was covering up, and he ate 2 shots before stoppage with only 1 coming thru clean, also dont agree with DC saying that he was struggling to get up even after ref stopped the fight, he looked ok just a few seconds later.

    Dude couldn’t get his equilibrium back. It still wasn’t back when he was up bitching. He was falling over the moment the ref let him go. Good stoppage

    Ok, got it, everytime a fighter is dazed from now on we should insta stop it, no longer needed for an actual KO, lets just every ufc card go softer and softer until this is a non contact sport with both fighters playing EA UFC on console in a cage with a ref making sure there is enough action.

    He would've just gotten beaten on and taken more unnecessary damage he was done seems like every stoppage where a guy who gets stopped protests is a "bad stoppage"

    He was done. He landed on all fours and his legs wouldn't let him get back up. It was a flash for sure but he was done.

    U do realize it’s the refs job to stop a fight if a fighter can no longer protect himself. He couldn’t protect himself and I bet on the bum

    He was done. Ref gave him a chance to recover. Instead he got blasted with a hard shot on the ground and went limp.

    But he did protect himself.. Hence my point... He was moving his head, he was not out, and out of the 2 strikes thrown after he fell to the ground, only 1 landed cleanly.... SO now we are saying that you no longer need to actually be out and taking necessary damage, now you just need to be dropped? So we might as well make it an instant TKO once a fighter gets dropped because how do you determine which fighter takes what damage after being dropped... This fight he took 1 shot after being dropped clean, and was NOT OUT, yet you agree with the fight stoppage because he was dazed? That by itself is not what the rules state for the fight to be stopped.
