Aldo's dominating win last night left me with one really annoying itch, and that was the really inconsistant refereeing that is becoming increasingly more inconsistant every title fight I see. Surely the fight should have been stopped in the last minute of the 4th round. Every time a fight gets to that position in an fight I have seen it gets stopped, no matter the damage being taken it gets stopped due to the rule that if you can't defend yourself then the ref stops it.

I understand in title fights they give a few seconds extra before stopping but faber was getting continueously hit for well over a minute and clearly didn't protect himself. Yes he bucked his hips a little and covered the right side of his face for about 10 seconds while aldo elbowed the left, but any other fight and its stopped.

Rant over...

If you are constantly trying to buck and get out of the crucifix they usually give you a lot longer. Most of the time when it gets stopped from little damage it is because the guy is just laying there eating it.

I disagree Faber was bucking and showing some effort to escape. He was taking unanswered blows but they weren't devestating.
