bad angle but from the other side it's clear his right thumb is up. he's not going to thumbs up with the hand that's protecting his head

Personally I think it was a horrible stoppage. Let them fight until they are finished... not this kind of "pleading" or "negotiating" by fighters for the ref to stop the fight.

Barao would have probably won in the end, but don't pull shit like that.

Didn't really matter if he was giving it our not, Herb couldn't see it and he was still turtling...

Sometimes its frustrating that in turtling up is the only way to defend yourself but at the same time doesn't seen like that intelligent if a defense. This was one of those times. Phone Post 3.0

That's clearly a pinky up, Urijah was just enjoying a cup of tea with his TKO.

Letting your padded gloves absorb a barrage of shots is probably the most intelligent way of defending yourself, no matter how you position the rest of your body.

I would have like to see more but it would have likely only extended the beating . There was still a minute and a half left for barao to finish him Phone Post 3.0

ya dude because its so easy to advance position from a single leg where your opponent has sprawled out and you were rocked... ya dude. if you have wrestled you know its stupid as fuck that anyone would not consider this defending your self and a decent position to be in. its safe and barao can't really unload. those punches couldnt not him faber super hard and he was blocking what was thrown. forcing a take down or going to his back were the only real options. I would opt to stay there for a moment than try and blast out.

With Barao pleading for a stoppage, and getting it.

Those hammer fists to the glove/arm weren't doing damage. Blocking that way was the intelligent defense.

Herb is a good ref, but yeah, it would have been nice to see the fight continue. Faber is perfectly capable of recovering and continuing.
