    Essentially my point is when a fighter gets dropped and rushed back to his feet by the other fighter and ref they put their arms out similar to Griffin as they try to get their legs under em.
    Forrest got super folded multiple times and definitely had little to no control of his limbs except what his rocked brain could muster up.

    I do agree he had the face of a beat fighter, but he didn't shell... he went out on instincts

    This, he actually waved Anderson away. He wasn't out cold and that wasn't simple flailing. Watch the Rashad fight to see the difference.

    pretty sure i heard him talk about this somewhere and he said he wasn't telling the ref to end the fight. he was instinctively trying to get distance between silva and his face by putting his arms out

    he mentally submitted, the ref read griffin's mind.

    Anderson felt bad for Forrest in that fight.

    He was done man. But it does look like it was a natural reaction by Griffin. Like maybe he was trying to get ready for Silva to fall into his deadly guard of destruction? I don't know?

    I consider it a textbook TKO.

    He was not fully unconscious, but he could not intelligently defend himself when the ref stepped in.

    I remember after Paulo Thiago knocked out Koscheck people claimed he was "pulling guard" because his legs flopped in the air after the fall to the canvas woke him up from his nap

    whatever it was, it was a career killer for Forrest. Never the same, never a contender again after that embarrassment

    He's posting up with his arms, hard to do that when you're unconscious. I don't even like Kos, but I think that stoppage was a little early.

    I never heard or read about a verbal submission, he visually submitted though, that's for sure. He was obviously finished.

    Agreed. Much like Forrest just waves his arms instinctively while barely conscious, Kos kinda leans up on his elbows and flails his legs in the general direction of his opponent... doesn't mean he was in any position to protect himself. There is no need for additional punches in either fight IMO, they were clearly over. Eyes open does not always mean conscious and it certainly doesn't mean able to intelligently defend.
