To use an example, let's go back to UFC 153 where Anderson Silva dropped Bonnar with a knee to the midsection. Bonnar faceplanted in the fetal position and Silva went in for the kill, hitting him with 8-9 more punches before the ref stopped the fight. Bonnar was given a chance to recover, protect himself, or improve his position, he didn't and it was stopped. It was a good stoppage and I don't recall anyone complaining about it.

And that's what should've happened in the fight yesterday, the stoppage was way too early.
