    Trying to defend while not conscious enough to use his arms so as not to land on his face?

    Meh, you'll never see me on here complaining about an early stoppage. I prefer to see the refs err on the side of caution even if it's the guy I'm rooting for that gets the short end of the stick. It's only a matter of time before somebody is seriously hurt.

    Agreed.
    With pretty much everybody!

    Seems to me the problem is when guys aren't LITERALLY on the floor not moving... ref's don't recognize that they are "out".
    As was pointed out by others... dude was out on his feet. Like Warren was in the Curran fight. Or even Maynard in his fight with Diaz. I HATE seeing guys get unnecessary beats.

    Speaking of which... though NOWHERE near as bad... I still think Herzog letting Rickels take ONE more... when he was CLEARLY done... was a bit unnecessary. When a guy drops on his ass like that, just being conscious isn't enough to permit the fight to go on. He coulda stopped that and saved that punch. Just saying.

    He is literally right above the guy watching his unconscious body getting pummeled. What a dipshit.

    From the time he hit the ground fast first, I counted 12 extra shots to the face, unblocked with 3 strikes missing the mark as he zombied his hands up.

    Fuck that ref, force him to take training or never assign him to fights again. That's lawsuit worthy shit.

    Yeah, he was out before he hit the ground. Not only should he be fired, he shouldn't be allowed to ever watch MMA again...from home on tv.
