Its fighting, Id rather see a beat down then a puss stoppage for 40 bucks. Maybe its the sadist in me. Even Dana acknowledged it was a questionable stoppage. Next time he'd get it right. And the Mir Sylvia fight is a bad example. Anytime a fighter has to have screws inserted to fix a submission break is a good indicator of a proper stoppage.
actually the fight should be stopped just before that point.. no one wants to see a fighters caerer get ended.. but its an extremely hard call to make as every fighter cna withstand more then a different fighter.. so its really the ref best judgement
