The Walker fight ended in shoulder/under armpit punches.
Made sense. Walker had no problem controlling him, but his opponent kept tying up his arms while he got fully mounted, and tried to use his long legs and Walker's high mount to reach for Walkers arms with his legs.....then when he turned him over he was only trying to punch him in the face (and ref warned him a few times for questionable punches to the back of the head)
Basically his opponent would turn his face everytime he got punched square in the face, in turn causing Walker to pull the followup punch or accidentally punch him in the back of the head.
I was yelling at the TV for him to punch him in the body and shoulder and arms just because he was dominating him and really, if he just kept hammering on him (no matter where) I felt the ref was going to stop it. Not intelligently defending, and he time and time again turned away from punches and not only did he not defend, he never attempted an offense while he was mounted on Nagy's back.
I thought it was a decent stoppage and I am sure his opponent will have some problems moving that left arm for a while. Much more than a weak punch from inches away to the side of the face. He actually got full leverage in those punches to the armpit. If you don't think it hurts get you friend to punch you as hard as they can to your armpit. Between the peck and lat there is no protection.
I always hate when fighters focus too much on the face and never work the body....especially on the ground where a fighter doesn't expect getting elbowed in the legs and body. And I always love when fighters actually do it.
