Maldonado willing, but doctor stops fight after 2nd versus Teixeira

Saturday, October 13, 2012

What proceeded to happen for the next almost 4 minutes was Teixeira beating the living hell out of Fabio Maldonado on the ground without mercy. To his credit, Maldonado refused to give up and continuously moved and shifted to escape, and with moments remaining in the round he managed to get back to his feet.

Much to Teixeira’s surprise, Maldonado still had some fight left in him and fired off a left hand that clipped him on the jaw, staggering him for a moment.

Somehow the fight made it to a second round and Teixeira unleashed the same kind of punishment all over again. Almost like he was auditioning for a role on ‘The Walking Dead’, Maldonado refused to go down despite taking more shots to the head than any zombie on the hit TV show.

When the second round ended, the cage side physician saw enough and stopped the bout despite protests from Maldonado, who somehow wanted to continue.
