I think the only reason we say it was early is because of what happened afterwards. It appeared to be a flash knockout and Mir appeared to be fine afterwards. If you look at it from a refs perspective you stop a fight immediately upon a guy getting knocked out. It is unfortunate that Mir bounced back so quick and was ready to go. I can't really fault the ref on this one any say it was a bad stoppage but it is one that i would be ok with if it wasn't stopped at that point.
