That was a pity stoppage which is disgraceful at the highest levels of MMA.


Reminds me of in boxing when a guy just flurries at the other's mitts and gets a bogus TKO.
So how many minutes of half striking the glove half striking the head can a ref allow before you should stop it? Or should it continue for 3 full rounds?

Tough decision, it was the right decision but not a very good one in the same time.

I think he was in serious danger, Okami could have unloaded on the back of his head and done serious damage to him.

You are in a mood tonight Roflcopter is everything okay?

For as long as Okami can continue to do it.

The thing is, they were weak arm punches that had no intent on them whatsoever, so he could've done it until the end of the round no problem.

Win, lose, or draw I decided to root for ol' Buddy Roberts. He's actually a pretty dangerous fighter. I think he can put on some exciting fights if he faces another striker.

Okami is too crafty and old school for em. Classic grappler stifles the striker.

This is pretty much. As a ref you'd have to stop the fight, even though the punches weren't powerful.

I just visited this thread for the first time. I didn't realize at all that this was a debate. Simply puting your hands on your head isn't "intelegently defending" yourself... that's been established, especially when you're facedown and mounted. That fight was a mismatch and needed to be stopped, no question about it.

Roberts was incapacitated although he wasn't in any danger. I would have stopped it because it was kind of embarrassing to watch...
