But had Munoz sat up and managed to scramble into a better position, Rosenthal would be praised for great refereeing.

Josh has the right idea, he's trying to let the fight be as natural as possible and not put a stoppage loss on a guy's record without being certain the fight should stop. They all make mistakes, and at the time of the fight the fighters appreciate being given a chance.

Maybe they won't in twenty years, but they know what they signed up for.
