No attack or defense was possible. Zero problem with the stoppage.
Mounted crucifix can end up being a brutal position depending on the fighter; Bones/Matyushenko as an example.

No interest in a rematch.

As far as I'm concerned Khabilov won on a takedown.

He should fight someone higher up the ladder like a Mike Chiesa.

They might as well be considered the same if the top fighter isn't using the crucifix to their full advantage(which McMann wasn't imo).

The same kind of ideology applies to this latest fight. Ok, the one guy has a broken/dislocated thumb. Is that injury severe enough to warrant a fight to be stopped if the fighter is still willing to continue? Can a dislocated thumb cause a fighter to die? To me a dislocated thumb is bad, it probably hurts like hell and increases the chances of a more severe injury(thumb more likely to be ripped off) but if the fighter is willing to take the risk then imo he should be allowed to continue fighting. Only in situations where the health of the fighter is in significant jeopardy do I believe fights should be stopped by the ref/doctor.

Aldo vs Faber 4th rd is the perfect example of why ref's shouldn't stop a fight because of a fighter being in a crucifix...
