That is exactly what he did. The fight was stopped because Chael quit. The responses in this thread are ridiculous there was nothing unusual about that stoppage. You have to keep moving in this sport if you go into the fetal position and stop moving like that the fight gets stopped.

Jones was on him for a while though there, it happens all the time. Even if significant shots aren't landing, the referee steps in if a fighters just laying there blocking. Fighters should learn by now that referees step in if you're defending but not improving position at all. Especially when you're opponent is going crazy on top. Nothing new here, just how it is.

Blocking shots but just laying there and not improving position isn't considered intelligently defending yourself. Fighters should learn that by now.

I tell you what though, Sonnen wasn't completely obliterated yet when the ref called it. He face was smashed and nose broken but he was not yet annihibliterated. I don't have a big problem with the stoppage though because in that position Jones with every next stike is on the verge of doing lethal damage. The ref did his job right there. That is not a safe spot and a ref is not going to let anybody stay there and continue to take shots from Jones there.

Glad the fight was stopped. Would have been a shame for the obviously inferior fighter to get a gift wrapped title.

well a perfect example of how its done right is brock vs carwin where shane was swarming but doing no significant damage and brock was able to make it out of the round. Now I was really pulling for shane in that fight but the ref made the right call.

if no significant damage is happening the fight shouldn't be stopped regardless of what position he was in

Impressive win by Jones. He tossed Chael around with relative ease. He has a huge natural strength advantage over his opponents.
