Ken sprung to his feet in protest after the Sakuraba fight in Pride claiming that the ref made a BS call.
Ken was out like a light!!!
Even his own brother Frank Shamrock said that he couldn't believe that Ken was protesting the Saku fight because he was out!!!
So the fact that Ken sprung to his feet means less than nothing.
I believe the Ortiz fight was a good stoppage...But I also think that Herb should've at least warned Ken to "do something" or "protect yourself or I'm gonna stop the fight"
There was no warning at all!!!
However...It would not have changed the outcome of the fight in the least bit.
yea I think you said it best there.. if the ref had given a waringin first then stopped no one could complain.. I think the call could go either way and I could argue both points I wish it went just a little longer though..
