Rua vs. Shogun?

It's easy to criticize when we get to watch a replay. 95% of fighters aren't going to stop punching if the ref hasn't stepped in. That puts the refs, organizers, league etc in an awkward situation as the ref hasn't actually stopped the fight.

Rua-Machida II . This is a great example on stopping your punches earlier. Another dumb example would be Marquardt-Palhares.

Well there are a few examples of fighters who stop punching after they knock out their opponent. Phil Davis stopped punching after he Rampage slammed that one opponent. Now he's considered in line for a title shot soon.
