UGCTT_chuckles1 - When I was watching it last night, it looked like Ninja was out when he was wrapped around Filho's leg and woke up when he was separated. It's hard to tell what exactly happened and there's definitely room to say it was an early stoppage. I think that Yamasaki made the right call. Phone Post

 lol @ folk saying it was a bad stoppage.

Ninja was out and basically fell forward, grasped at something to keep from doing a face skid, which happened to be Paulos legs, and it ended up looking something like a takedown attempt, which is apparently where the confusion is coming from.

The fact of the matter was, he was well out of the fight at that point, and basically resting on Paulos thigh.
You can't just rest up on someones thigh and expect the ref to do nothing about it.

i remember halloween - 
Diesel67 - Didn't Kharitonov KO Ninja with a stomach punch?
Brazilians aren't as squeamish about back-of-the-head shots as we are.They're there to FIGHT.

 No, he KO'd him with a ridiculous head shot against the ropes in the 04 HW GP.  Ninja is a middleweight that gained like 30 lbs so he could fight in the tournament.  It was really bad, he got hit with a combo that KO'd him mid way through.  His eyes were already rolled into the back of his head when Sergei hit him with the final power shot.  If you watch it in slow mo its one of the worst KO's you'll see. 

No way, that was Ninja?
I remember seeing it in a YouTube highlight video. If I find it, i'll post the link.

  I think it's called, "punching whilst under the influence of muscle relaxers".

 Certainly got the job done though.

Paulo has decent power; if only he didn't leave his chin so high like that.

KO'd Doerkson in reasonably similar fashion.

mario is a terrible ref. Jiu jitsu and judo blackbelt but doesnt let people grapple on the ground very long before prematurely standing them up. I also cant shake that eric silva bullshit loss.

That's crazy, usually Yamasaki is the one ref that lets fighters take more of a beating than they should. He's the last one I'd expect to do an early stoppage. Phone Post

good stoppage IMO. Ninja gets tagged badly at 1:19 and his legs just gave up.
