    I personally agree with this stoppage but I can understand if people find this controversial.

    How?

    Brad was trying to wave the fight off or trying to protect himself when the shots weren't even coming, that's how hurt he was.

    Great stoppage.

    When the fighter himself does not protest that should tell everyone everything.

    Fiziev is a killer!
    Getting a finish like this over someone like Riddel is insane!
    Fiziez also looked more measured and patient unlike the Bobby fight. Perfomed waay better, in a scary way.

    It is I’m talking about how it looks like Ridell was going for a takedown. To an uneducated viewer it can look like a bad stoppage hence why this is going to be controversial.

    Riddell was like “timeout Herb”

    Nothing controversial here

    He made Riddell go into panic mode and say 'oh shit time, time i can't see you'

    Lol

    First hooker and now Another L for city kickboxing

    We are hard on Herb Dean usually, but he did a great job here. Kudos to him.

    If you think he was there enough to wave it off how out was he? I'm not saying it was bad but he did shoot for a takedown.

    Diaz called it panic wrestling. When a fighter is getting lit up, they naturally go to wrestling to stop getting punched in the face.

    Yeah. Wasn't the worst stoppage but he could have let it play out a little.

    That's two losses in a row from their camp against Muslim opponents no wonder Eugene is bitter

    Fair enough.

    I just didn't like the way Brad was trying to put his hands up like that. It was worrisome because there wasn't any incoming shots, yet, and I know it's instinct to defend yourself. Yet, it still looked like he was way too hurt and anymore damage just wasn't needed.

    I think if I was Riddell (assuming he wasn't aware enough for that to be him waving off the fight which I didn't think he was doing) I would have taken two hammer fists after going on a single leg.

    It reminded me of the Gaethje v Ferguson stoppage, where he had a weird reaction , and just out of survival instinct dived for a leg.
    I have no problem with the stoppage after seeing the replays. In live action I thought it was a tad bit early.
