    He was getting his face punched in when the fight was stopped

    TJ went for the single leg when Henry ran off to celebrate

    It was painfully obvious TJ was in an extremely weakened state and has no business at 125

    He went for a single leg repeatedly during the 30s of the fight including at the point it was stopped.
    Watch it again, you are wrong.

    He was doing the stanky right after the stoppage too. Had the ref let it go on for another 10 seconds, there would be outrage over a late stoppage.

    He impotently tried to grab Cejudo's ankle after getting dropped the second time. He was going for a single leg, but that's very different than having one. He certainly had no kind of grip or control on Henry's leg. He was too busy getting destroyed.

    Did we all of a sudden forget about these moments?





    Let the fight go on until it is definitive. Whoever that ref was, I hope he doesn't ref a title fight again.

    He tried a single, but he was nowhere a single. My guess is that when Cejudo left he got hold of the ref leg and tought it was Cejudo's. It happens all the time and he said multiple times that he hadn't saw the fight before going to the interview.

    You are either blind or don't know what a single leg is if you think TJ was going for a single leg as the ref stepped in. In his mind he may have been going for one but he was NO WHERE close to having or being in position for one.

    It's true. The good refs understand that title fights, especially champ vs champ fights, deserve the opportunity to fight through adversity because you need a definitive conclusion to the big ones. Watching TJ through the stoppage a few times, he in no time face planted, shutdown, or reset, and was moving coherently through it all. You have a super rabbit fast hitting Cejudo on top of you, it's not something you are instantly going to assess and stop because things move quickly, but he was still in it. The ref fucked up and showed his inexperience reffing big fights.

    Keep that ref on the prelims with that BS.

    No I don't think so. TJ was moving. I wouldn't call it "going for a single leg", but he was grabbing Henry's ankle.

    He was blindly reaching out with his hands, like most fighters who aren't fully KO'd do. Acceptable stoppage.

    Going for a single leg when both of you are already on the ground

    Falling helpless like a sack of potatoes with your head flailing is going to get you a stoppage. You can't fall without bracing yourself head spinning like a top.

    TJ's doing a stretching half split when this thing was called, he wasn't getting any wrestling done.

    We saw a little bit of brain damage avoided, thats about it.

    He was or he wasn't. Putting that argument aside TJ said in the post fight that he HAD a single leg and Henry stopped punching because he was DEFENDING that single leg which:
    1. He did not HAVE
    2. Henry stopped punching when the ref stopped him and not a second sooner.
    3. TJ may have wished to go out flatlined but the ref stopped it before that however he was rocked and getting hit without defending it effectively.
    4. DJ's "Loss" to Henry was much more of a robbery and yet DJ took the loss with class. TJ cried and in one sentence congratulated Henry "but you didn't win."

    Lol, yeah he did such a good job going for it that Cejudo stood up and circled behind him and kept blasting. But impotently reaching for his ankle from behind was going to save him. Lol.

    I’ve rewatched it for the real time angle and the replay angles. TJ literally was not even touching Hank at the time the fight was stopped.
