I'm kind of torn on this. On one hand it looked like Dariush had some fight left in him and he never gave up. On the other hand he was getting tagged constantly with big shots and didn't look like he even tried to defend himself. Tough to say if it was a late stoppage but I felt really bad watching it. Would have been better for everyone if the fight was stopped earlier.

I didn't think it was too late at all.

Nog was sliping the right hand early , but then Roy started throwing in combinations and I don't think big nog had a plan for that.

Well kinda... But that one punch he does has can KO like 99.9% of the people on the planet. Its crazy powerful.He doesn't have a bad grappling game at all though. It's actually pretty solid big man jiu jitsu.

That ref for the Nijem/Dariush fight, Neil Hall.... next time he should really wait until the loser's heart stops beating, just to be sure. Seriously, that fucker should be banned from the sport. I cannot remember a later stoppage than that.

Great KO.It's always sad to see Nog get finish decisively- something that was all but unthinkable at one time.

Johnny Bedford acted like a complete asshole. It couldn't be any clearer it was a NC. I'll root against that guy forever.

What a tremendous KO for Nelson! It's just to bad it had to happen to a living Legend like Nogueira. I remember when Heath Herring through that head kicked that knocked big nog off his feat and dazed him pretty good and he recovered I. No time. I think it's time for Big Nog to hang up the gloves! Nelson and Barnett would be a great match, stylistically I can see Nelson having a hard time with Mr. Metal
