    I was playing the fight over in my head and imagined if Erick Silva backed off after Brown went down from the liver kick.

    That would force Brown to get back up, or the ref would be forced to stop it. Rushing in trying to finish like that was basically the downfall. It would have been really interesting.

    The ref wouldnt be forced to stop it if Silva wasnt advancing

    No need to imagine. Fights over, Eric got decimated. No point in thinking "what if".

    Then people on Sherdog would say he has shitty fight IQ for not going for the submission because Brown has been submitted countless times

    If ifs and buts were candy and nuts, we'd all have a Merry Christmas.

    If Brown couldn't get back up, he lost.

    10 times. 10 is a number I assume even Sherdoggers can count.

    That's a lot of times for a professional fighter
