    He should have remembered the fight is for 25 minutes.

    Not 24 minutes and 55 seconds. He could have just ran away for a little bit.

    like what the hell man! Why do so many guys stop fighting with a few seconds left in the round?!

    He could have had another shot at Stipe or Ngannou.

    Overeem could have retired a champion.

    Big Dan fucked up. You are the ref, you don't let the fighter make the call on the knockout

    Not even the king of early stoppage Herb Dean let Mark Hunt call the knockout, and Struve was in worse shape than the Reem. Herb looked at Struve before making the call.

    The fight would have been a majority draw anyway with that knockdown.

    I loathe these shitty refs and early stoppages. Let the goddamn fighters fight, unless they are tapping, or are stiff with their eyes rolled back and toes curled up. Let the damn thing go until there is zero doubt the fighter is done. Being stunned and dazed isn't done.

    Even in boxing now they are stopping fights when a fighter gets knocked down hard. What the fuck happened to the 10 count?!

    If there was two minutes left in the round everyone would have considered it a fair stoppage since half of overeems face was hanging off.

    The conclusion doesn't follow the premise. Overeem would've lost to either one...again.

    I think he stood a chance against Stipe.

    maybe even catches a submission on Ngannou in a scramble

    Nope. He gets KO'd or TKO'd again in either fight.

    No because one knockdown isn't enough to get a 10-8 in MMA. Rozenstruick would win the round 10-9 and lose a UD. This isn't boxing.

    If only he didn’t get KOd by Rozenstruik he could have been KOd by Ngannou again instead of Volkov.
