Mazzagatti stopped the fight too early..

Am I the only one who thought that Sanchez was still intelligently defending himself? I thought he could have given Eddie at least 15 more seconds to get outta there. Mirko seemed to have forgot he was allowed to rain elbows down on Eddie's grill. He was landing shots but nothing I would consider fight stopping blows. Did anyone else think it was a bit premature to stop it when he did?

I do think he stopped it as little too early, but the only reason Eddie was still concious was because there was so much adrenaline rushing through his body. He took that high kick and then stumbled like 5 seconds later. Steve knew that, and it was obvious Eddie was not gonna mount any offense from that point on. I guess, in his mind, it was pointless to let the fight continue.

I agree with Herton. Sanchez didn't complain with the stoppage so neither should we, and Mazzagatti probably saved him a week or two for recovery.

good stoppage IMO Sanchez kinda lost his heart just before the stoppage. he looked away towards the cage. can't intelligently defend what you can't see where the punches are coming from

I wished Mirko would have let Eddie back up to his feet.

it would have still ended whether maz stopped it early or not. why prolong it 5 or 10 more seconds. mirko had the mount and eddie tried to role out and could not. he was stuck against the fence. he was taking a pounding, i dont really see anything with the stoppage in that it saved sanchez more punishment. eddie didnt complain either so i dont see where this came from.

LOL
One of my buddies (Croatian - huge Mirko fan) was yelling 'C'mon Eddie, you can make it' I was like 'WTF'?? The answer was "I wanna see him knock him out with the headkick".
So yeah, I agree man.

yea it still would have ended it, but it would have been better for the UFC if he put Eddie to sleep. Even if it was from the mount and not from a HK
