i don't think he could have continued. his eye was pretty much completely shut when he was walking down the aisle after the match.
as for mousasi, i need to see a bit more of him before i make a judgement. his height is a great advantage and it's the reason he was able to get out of that armbar (and not tap initially when takimoto locked it in). he had takimoto's back for a long time and never quite sunk in his rear naked choke.
