Marius Zaromskis eats eleven unanswered punches

Quote:
Bellator welterweight Marius Zaromskis faced off today against Russian superstar Andrey Korenshkov at Bellator 78.

The event featured the Bellator season seven welterweight semifinals, and aired live from the Nutter Center in Dayton, Ohio.

Zaromskis (19-6) came into the bout with an impressive 5-fight winning streak which contained victories over Eji Ishikawa, Bruno Carvalho, Waachim Spiritwolf x2, and Nordine Taleb.

His opponent, Korenshkov (12-0), came into the bout undefeated and had finished all his previous opponents with the exception of his last Bellator bout against Jordan Smith which went the distance.

The two came out guns blazing and immediately started trading punches in the middle of the cage. Eventually, Korenshov dropped Zaromskis with a powerful punch against the fence and quickly rushed the badly wounded Zaromskis, finishing him with brutal ground-and-pound and earning his twelfth consecutive MMA victory.

However, the ending of the fight was brutal indeed as an unconscious Zaromskis was hit with punch after punch before the fight was called. On the commentary, Bellator announcer Jimmy Smith shouted over and over, "He is out, he is out," as the referee watched Zaromskis repeatedly hit in the face.

In total Zaromskis ate eleven unanswered punches after being dropped.

Watch the stoppage below:

Time to look for a new job.

Imo, it seems that he's trying to get up until the last two punches, when his arms went down and the ref immediately stepped in.

Still should have been stopped way sooner.

Hard to tell.

Sometimes it looks like he's putting his hands up or trying to stand up, only like the last 3-5 shots look like it should be stopped for me. In fact, half way through those shots I'm pretty sure he tries to grab one of his hands to stop the punching.

Could just be me, though.

I think he's out from the first shot. That's how it looked when I watched it. His legs aren't moving, his arms are just waving around and he's eating punches. This was one of the worst late stoppages I've ever seen, even worse than Maldonado's last fight.

Horrible reffing altogether at Bellator 78. In the main event the ref didn't see an eye poke that led to a TKO. But it get's even better, in my opinion it was an early stoppage. So the guy got poked in the eye, then got dropped, immediately recovered and then stopped by the ref.

It's not hard to tell. He was defending in the same way that Schaub was trying to pull Rothwell into his guard. That was mostly muscle memory.

He may not have been out stiff, but a referee is supposed to stop the fight when a fighter stops defending intelligently. And Zaromskis was just eating undefended shots. Horribly late stoppage.

I thought he looked like he was trying to get his arms up for the first 4-5 punches. Still should have been stopped way earlier than it was.

Late stoppage.
He was out of combat from the first punch indeed. However, he wasn't knocked out unconscious in any moment during that barrage. After the first blow he clearly turns during the fall looking for the coming opponent and right after the stoppage, he is immediately interacting with the referee. You don't recover from that first punch by receiving ten more, so that's the reason he wasn't out cold in any moment. At least as out as Terry Etim against Barboza.

That being said, no need to wait for positive indication of uncounsciousness to stop the fight. The fight shoud have been stopped after the first, maximum third blow as he, although partially awake, could do zero to defend himself.

He wasn't out stiff, he was still sort of moving but very iffy in terms of whether that constitutes any sort of real defense pretty much from the moment he hit the ground. At least no one will complain that it was early though.
