    Watched this fight and Cody knocked Mendes down with a punch but when Mendes hit the ground his head didn't even hit the mat as he was still awake, so it wasn't a flash KO where hittijgntjr mat woke him up. He was ready for Cody to attempt to come into his guard but the ref stopped it while Mendes argued the stoppage.

    I think it was bad. For all we know he could easily have been able to continue. He wasn't out clean, he didn't eat a barrage of shots and have no answer, and his will wasn't broken and he didn't want the fight stopped. It could have and should have continued. Maybe it would have ended shortly thereafter but we'll never know.

    Basically, fighters need to fail 1 of 3 checks for a fight to be stopped IMO: consciousness, will, skill. He was still conscious, he wanted to carry on, and he didn't look outmatched.

    In my opinion it was bad. He knocked him down, then the ref semi stepped in, action stopped then the ref stepped away and he was able to land shots. Really confusing and could have continued

    Yamasaki botched it but the way he failed to defend against the follow up punches suggested Mendes wasn't all there.

    The way Yamazaki handled it was really odd. Walking in front Garbrandt I thought he was stopping it then. And so did Garbrandt it seemed. Then Anik saying after the fight bit premature celebration.

    Yeah Yamasaki was in poor form last night

    If he stopped it right away it would have been a little quick but okay

    But that weird shuffle between the fighters was pretty terrible

    It was a horrible match up. They were celebrating like he earned a #1 contender spot, but the guy looked like a just woken up office clerk; everytime he kicked he nearly fell on his ass. I know it was short notice but come on.

    Horrible job reffing by Mario. Completely steps right between the two fighters in a crucial moment.

    Yamasaki is a mess. He was spacing out at the main event too.

    He botched this one and the cowboys' fight. It wasn't just bad it was Mazzagatti bad.

    It was a quick stoppage that became a bad stoppage when he decided to hop over the guy on the ground in confusing fashion without ending the fight. Mendes was certainly stunned, and then was left looking up at the ref in confusion as Cody got more shots in.

    Maybe that's why Mendes didn't really do anything offensively after the ref blocked Garbrandt, he might have thought the ref had called it off too.

    This. It wasn't a terrible stoppage but wtf are you doing ref. You'd think this is a street fight & Mario is a confused by stander.

    it was a bad stoppage imo. the guys head didn't even hit the canvas, he was still aware of what was going on.
