Leaves it open for a rematch.

Guida Mendes was a good stoppage, that one was worse.

I feel there's been several fights stopped unconvincingly tonight.

Not saying the endings would have changed, but we sure as hell have seen ppl bounce back from much more dire moments than some of the stuff we've seen tonight. Phone Post

I think Barnett should've been allowed to smack him a couple more times just to remove all doubt.

Mir has proved he can come back and win. At least give him a chance Phone Post

Imo, they weren't terrible stoppages, but they weren't good stoppages either. Phone Post

We must be using different definitions for "out."

Because immediately jumping back up to your feet isn't "out" to me.

Anderson Silva vs Chris Weidman is a good example of out, as is Robbie Lawler vs Melvin Manhoef. Phone Post

He did fall in a completely collapsed limp fashion, but I can see where many fans wouldn't be satisfied.

Terrible stoppage. Especially with someone that's come back from worse. Rematch is needed asap. Phone Post 3.0

But both would have simply let their hands go and win anyway, so why let the fighter take more damage if they're already out? Phone Post

How many times have we seen someone go down and look like they are on the verge of losing, only to see the dominant fighter gas themselves out while wailing on a hurt fighter that is covering up, and then end up losing because they spent themselves trying to finish? Dozens man, we've seen that dozens of times.

Going down quick doesn't mean their out for sure, and it sure as shit doesn't mean that fighter us out of the fight.

I dunno, I see where you're coming from, and I respect your opinion, but I can't get on board with you on this one after seeing fighters come back from worse spots than Mir or Guida were in. Phone Post
