Regarding the Benavidez fight, did Fabiano tap there after the first choke attempt or was he just moving his hand to get a better position? From the TV angle it looked like he was tapping.

Because then Lesnar would not have won the fight. Plain and simple.

Why should Lesnar/Carwin have ended in the first? When someone is defending themselves and getting punches mostly in the arms, while pushing off and finally even managing to get up, there's no reason for any stoppage.

Ya he did the lesnar/carwin fight, and he should have stopped that fight in the first round.
