Its a very fine line that a ref has to balance between being incompetent or being heralded as one of the best in the business. We all absolutely hate early stoppages and refs who shall remain unnamed ....... take some serious heat for those stoppages.

Think about Brock vs. Carwin, Nog vs. Mir, Hendo vs. Shogun. Any of those fights could have easily been stopped earlier and we likely wouldn't have complained but we ended up getting dramatically different results.

I give him props for manning up and admitting his mistake. Now that he's done that he's going to have to be really sharp so he doesn't make this mistake again or overcompensate and stop a fight early.
