Kaitlin Young's thought on the stoppage

Here ya go:

MMA Quick Quote: ‘CBS didn’t want the visual of a woman with a bloody face on CBS’
By: MMAmania


“My left cheek and area surrounding the eye are looking pretty ugly today, but there was no major damage. Though it may have looked like it on tv, I never actually had an open wound. What you didn’t see was that the doctor actually cleared me to fight the third round but the commission said ‘no.’ I wanted to continue, my corner wanted to continue. The cut likely would have opened in the third but it was under the eye. If I had to guess, I would say that they didn’t want the visual of a woman with a bloody face on CBS. They also chose not to do a post fight interview with me or to include me in the post fight news conference and after party. I think the reason for that was my beat up appearance after the fight because I was not seriously injured and was completely coherent. I am very disappointed about that but cant help but wonder how people would have responded to that, as stupid as it is. “

– Kaitlin Young — who did not answer the bell for the third and final round of her fight with Gina Carano at Elite XC: “Primetime” on CBS — shares her thoughts via FighterGirls.com on the stoppage. Young sustained some pretty solid damage during her six minutes in the cage; however, she was still demonstrating that she was aware and in the fight. She also reveals that the doctor cleared her to continue between rounds; however, the commission ultimately made the decision to stop the fight. It’s interesting to hear her thoughts on the possible reasons behind the premature stoppage.

I actually agree with her, I dunno if that's the only reason behind the stoppage but I was shocked that they ended the fight.

I wasn't surprised that the fight was stopped. After looking at the bruising on her face I figured that they would. As 'controversial' as women's mma is, to allow the fight to continue and to interview a beat up woman after the fight would only add fuel to the fire of the uninformed and opponents of women's mma.

Man, she got ****ed up. Period. If CBS didnt want her busted up face on TV they wouldn't zoom in on her after the fight was stopped to display damage. I clearly remmeber she was getting tagged in every exchange and was very wobbly towards the end. If they allowed it to continue it would be a very one sided beating at the hand of the Conviction!!! Thats why they stopped it, outcome was clear.

Wobbly or not she could have continued to fight, if this was two guy fighters the reaction would be overwhelming: "Let the fighters fight and decide it- not a early stoppage." If they didn't want to show a bloody woman then don't put the fight on the main card and undercard it. This wasn't a bake-off or a paddycake competition they were fighting- of course there were going to be blood and bruises.

I agree. She was clearly getting her ass kicked and losing in the exchanges and they should stop all fights just because somebody is losing at the end of a round. The outcome was clear so why continue right?

Hey man I understand what you are saying that some fights need to be stopped and Young was tired and hurt but it looked like she was definitely capable of fighting and at least attempt to finish the fight. The doctor cleared the damage and said she could go on- my problem with this is that the female factor should not play a role in this decision especially in whether or not people could handle seeing a female in that state. Either don't show the fight on the main card or allow it to play out just like a male fight.

I haven't re-watched this fight yet but I will go back to double check her condition but from what I saw it looked like she could have continued.

She could have continued. She had a boo boo under her eye so basically they decided to stop the fight.
