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.
Thank you! Enough bitching jeez its MMA!!...you know who else isnt bitching about a late stoppage? Munoz! At least this way the fights are more decisive, it was a late, but not THAT late my god...better than an early stoppage IMO
