These two fights are actually comical. Their toughness and will to beat each other just prolongs the violence, they tire at a similar rate, it's insanity. Both guys try to be careful and fight smart but soon as they get tagged, it's a balls to the wall death match.

Hendo walked to the fence at the end of the first round looking like he wanted hell to open it's gates and suck him in. He looked absolutely horrified at what just happened, he knocked Shogun back and next thing he's on his back. Then he gets dropped again in the second and that's still not the end of it.

Shogun seemed to try getting up to carry on after it was stopped, I can't tell if he fell back rocked and in pain, or fell back out of pure disappointment that he lost and the chaos could not continue.

Crazy.

The referee could have stopped the fight and warn or deduct a point from Shogun = his job (I wrote that already, lazyboy). Later on, when Hendo was landing the shots, he could have the fight stopped the same way, wait to check if Shogun would want or be able to continue (Shogun would prefer to continue over winning by DQ, IMO) and voilá. If Shogun wasn't able to recover (I personally doubt that), to DQ Hendo would be at referee's discretion. Did Jon Jones got a DQ? Why he got one?

the backwards somersault shows that he was not out, i dont really think the shots to the back of the head were all that damaging either.. at the end when he flops back to the canvas i believe that is more in a moment frustrated disapointment, plus the fact that his face is caved in and that probably hurts like hell.

however i cannot contest the stoppage really as i dont consider "turtling up" to be intelligent defense..
