I am. I'd like to hear them explain to Joe's wife why they didn't protect him.

 if he was truly concussed his legs would lose dexterity, he knew what he was doing Curran was just countering it. he's tough as hell and he was fine.

Warren has a history of weathering the storm and winning.. I think the ref was giving him as much time as possible. Coupled with the fence supporting him as he continued to get hit, the fight went on too long.. But I think Joe will be okay. Sounds like he was planning on taking a wrestling break anyway.

That is a foul and is against the rules. What the corner should have done is hopped the fence and beat the shit out of the ref. That was awful. Cindy

someone said warren should have fallen or tapped out but he may not have been fully aware enough to do so.refs got to be smarter than this one was. how was he comfortable with warren's safety during that beating?

Technically, throwing in the towel doesn't stop the fight in Unified MMA. I think that's created a culture were the corners aren't as aware of/focused on it as in boxing.

Standings TKOs exist and this fight should have been one of them. It's just this ref was too bad to realize that Joe was out on his feet.
