liddell vs. ortiz = early stoppage

thats what i think, tito was doing what he always does to cover up.

Look at what he got through in the first round, compared to when the fight was stopped in the third.

he was way more hurt in round 1.

Putting your hands up is not considered an "intelligent defense". Tito knows this. When a fighter only puts their hands up and they do not try to grab arms or throw elbows, they are telling the referee that they are done and that they do not want to fight anymore.

Yeah, I agree. I was rooting for Chuck,and I think he would have won regardless, but that was a bad stopage. Chuck wasn't really hitting him with anything too damaging. Tito was defending himself, not sure why Mario stopped it there, but not in the first.

for it to continue, Tito just needed to throw one single blow... blocked or not... he just had to show that his defense was strategic and he could still provide *any* kind of counter... which he couldnt... he was completely turtling up.

I was surprised it wasnt stopped in the first round when he did that... of all things, the Ref was being gracious and gave Tito a second chance.

Meh....I dunno. I thought it was at first too but then again Tito wasn't complaining. I mean, he is hard as hell to actually knock out. It's not like he was gonna tap or something while he was still conscious. He wanted the fight to be over and the ref knew it and he even admitted it in the post-fight. I would normally say it was early but the fact that Tito didn't even complain in the least little bit tells me otherwise.

I also think they should have gone a little bit longer. It would have been nice to see tito really get smashed.

However, if it really was stopped too early, Tito would have mentioned it. He didn't, so he knew it was right. He said he tried. He was sorry to his fans.
