It wasn't a bad fight.
1 minute of pillow punches wouldn't have hurt her that bad... If there had been some force I would be all for the stoppage the strikes just seemed to be a little weak to warrant a stoppage even if Gaff was unable to defend them.
To me that is no different then stopping a fight when a fighter is in guard holding the other fighter down and landing strikes. The other person can't stand back up and can only make limited actions to defend themselves but unless they are being hammered on I don't believe the fight should be ended just because they don't have the strength to throw their opponent off of them.
