    Kelvin was out of it for the last minute of round 5... The commentators were screaming for it to stop ...Kelvin wasn’t defending himself and eating shot after shot ....

    think the ref was scared to stop it so close to the end of the fight ...

    Kelvin was intelligently defending himself. Was very close to being stopped but I think he did enough.

    I agree, ref let it go since there was a few second left, and Kelvin wasnt dead yet.

    You might be right bud, I'd have to rewatch the end after that last knockdown.

    I think so, Kelvin lost some brain cells in there for sure.

    I agree that the fight should have been stopped and almost certainly would have been had there been more time left. Imo refs should never pay attention to the time or the round when making those decisions.

    Some do, some don’t. We’ve seen plenty of fights stopped in the last ten seconds, and plenty that weren’t. Typical inconsistency that we see in the reffing, and the judging. There’s no rhyme or reason, and the big commisions seem to like it that way.

    It could have been stopped in the last 20 seconds or so, but I'm glad it didn't. Gastelum deserved this fight to be taken to the judges.

    Dude if u have any knowledge of how the worst injuries happen in combat sports u know that ref should be at least suspended for a long time. And educated on the matter. That was fuckin ridiculous.

    Kelvin “Adonis Stevenson” Gastelum is what people want I guess.

    Rogan screaming "STOP THE FIGHT" with 3 seconds left was hysterical and infuriating

    No. He wasn't out and he didn't deserve to get stopped in the last second after that performance

    Nah, ultimately is was the right decision. Kelvin wanted it to go onto the end as he was still conscious.

    Ref let him lose with his head up and no controversy. What's a few more seconds for that.

    I think if there were another 30 seconds to a minute left in the fight, it would have gotten stopped.
