To me, that GIF made the stoppage look even worse than live haha.
I'm getting pretty sick of this 'protecting the fighter' bullshit that seems to be the excuse for every early stoppage these days. These guys/girls know what they signed up for, it's a fight, they are going to get hurt. I agree with stopping a fight where a fighter is taking an unrelented beating but to stop a fight 'in case' they do is pathetic.
Herb Dean has literally ruined 2 main event title fights in a row in my opinion.
