There needs to be a set rule for stoppages. Refs can easily "fix" fights just by stopping it when a fighter is slightly hurt, it's absurd. There have been so, so many come from behind victories. Make people finish the fight don't do it for them.


I think it was kind of rude to mention Junior so quickly to Cain. Let the guy have his victory. Funny how he just now defended the belt the same amount of times that Cigano did.

It was a good stoppage, you turn your head away from the strikes and don't defend yourself the fight is called.

JDS x Velasquez III, no doubt.
Question: Will Cormier cut weight to LHW, since Cain is still the champ?

Hw belt never stays on peoples waists for too long, I agree these are professional fighters they know what they are getting into don't stop the fight until they are going limp or tapping they can handle it but they can't handle being denied a chance to come back and win.

Try to stand up when someone is clocking you in the head... When your head is swimming it is a lot easier said then done, especially for HW fighters.

Bigfoot had his hands under him and was working towards getting back up. All it would have took was for Cain to slow down a bit and Silva could have gotten back up and kept the fight going for at least a little bit longer.

We are seriously missing out on good comeback wins by all the recent stoppages like this. Soon as a fighter gets in any trouble the refs stop it now even when it seems likely the fighter would end up surviving. We have already seen multiple times in the past all a fighter needs is that little extra chance so why not give it to them.

That stoppage was too early! Especially considering it was a CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT.

I'm not saying Silva would have won... but let them fight...! .

As expected. Speed kills. Show me the money!

Big Foot vs Hunt. That should be fun!

Yup. Got the inside angle on him and Bigfoot had no chance. It was a sweet textbook setup, Bigfoot had no chance at all.

Early stoppage or no, Big Foot as outclassed by Cain again.

No problem with the stoppage as I doubt Big Foot would have gotten out of trouble.
