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.
A fighter must intelligently defend his or her self at all times, that is how it works. Sheila might of still been intelligent but she lacked the ability to defend herself entirely. It was basically a check mate situation. The ref gave her time to attempt to escape, she could not, did not.

OSP is right up there with Jones physically.

It's such a shame he's so damn clumsy.

I hope this is just an adrenaline dump from OSP because his cardio is pathetic right now.
