But I still think he should have let CC land a few more shots to seal the deal. I dont ever want to see a fighter get hurt but I just think a few more blows from the mount would have been a good stoppage. I agree it looked like Eddie was ready to quit but if he wanted to quit he coulda tapped. It isnt a ref's job to say " Sanchez isnt gonna win this fight, so Im gonn save him punishment by stopping it" he is only supposed to stop it when a fighter can't intelligently defend himself. And at that point Eddie was still doing that.

You are probably right at that one.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

Did anyone else think it was a bit premature to stop it when he did?

Was it a bit premature? yes... Would Cro cop have won anyways? absolutely
