    Do you guys think it was early? Im arguing with my GF she thinks it was, and I think it was justified. Trying to get other opinions. If so, do you think it was to make up for the earlier fight?

    Would you make up for one screw up by doing another screw up??

    Sounds legit.

    No. Bisping fan and it wasn't early. He was hurt and turtling with one of the best finishers on top of him.

    Twist ending: earlier call was actually correct.

    Bisping MIGHT have been ok, but really im not gonna say bad stoppage. Bispings gameplan sucked he should have been spamming TD'S in rounds 1 and 2.

    Yes. He even realised that he jumped in early, but once he'd touched the fighters that was it.

    This is true, I just watched it again and it he looked pretty damn hesitant when he jumped in, but then realized he had already made the commitment.

    It's Dan M. I doubt he put that much thought into things.

    Though I do think it was a little premature, especially as Bisping was rocked in the first and recovered.

    while i think it was a little early i don't think bisping would've fully recovered. so not a bad stoppage at the end of the day.

    I look for any excuse to shit on Dan M. But this was not an early stoppage.

    Bisping was turtling and wasn't intelligently defending himself

    Dropping like a rock and then laying on your side turtling is not the definition of "intelligently defending oneself."

    Just because Vitor's finishing flurry was going wild doesnt negate that.

    He wasn't rocked nearly as bad in the first.

    Legit stoppage. Bisping was doing nothing after getting dropped.

    Yeah, he touched Vitor, backed away and then stopped it. He did something almost as bad in the Pat Barry/Kongo fight. I think his decisions are OK, but DON'T fake the fighters out like that.

    It was a just stoppage, IMO, although him touching Vitor then stepping off then stopping it 2 seconds later was retarded.

    Bisping was just lying there covering up, though, so the stoppage made sense.
