    Bad stoppage Imo, although he was hitting him with big shots he never really looked out of it and was attempting a single leg.... if he was flat on his back fair enough but he just seemed wobbled. Two champs fighting, at least give him the chance to see if he can recover......

    Glad Cowboy won after Hernandez was acting like a disrespectful douchebag pre fight

    looked to me like if it had gone on 2-3 seconds longer the way the fight was going he'd have been KO'd,
    so should the ref wait untill someone is KO'd?
    if anyone is to blame then its TJ for allowing himself to be put in that position

    I don't think TJ was hurt at all, he recovered instantly with no facial damage as soon as it was stopped and he got up to protest. Henry was just catching him off balance and he never got it back until he shot for a leg at which point it was too late.

    That being said, in MMA when you take a ton of shots unanswered while not defending it will be stopped, even if you aren't receiving damage. Just look at when people get put in a crucifix, little pepper shots that do not inflict any damage but stack into enough consecutive strikes that the fight gets stopped.

    Doesnt have to be a KO for the ref to stop it but whilst the guy still looks in it, which TJ did to me, he should let it go. Historically stoppages have always been a little later in championship fights which is the way it should be Imo, as above although Cejudo was landing big shots and he was rocked he didn't look out of it to me.

    The only way that's an early stoppage imo is if we're changing the rules to say someone needs to be completely incapacitated to call a stop.

    Brilliant card. The cowboy fight was awesome, easily fight of the night.

    I thought the stoppage was a bit early in the main event but TJ dropped too much weight, he didn't seem able to take a punch. It reminded me of Rockhold, he looks the same at middleweight.

    yeah was a bad stoppage tj was still there albeit rocked but still going.

    what a tool that hardy guy is though.. part of me thinks it was intentional because crowder was mugging him off just before and he was gassed. plus 3rd fight or whatever it was gets a totally undeserved co main :/ wth.

    glad to see jojo got another win shes starting to look a lot more comfortable on the ground.

    Can't see as it will make much difference to his legacy if he loses to be honest - he's already lost his aura of invincibility so I'd rather see Bader go on and become a dominant champion just to stick it to Dana for not offering enough money for him to stay in the UFC!

    Bellator 214 was a decent card, fights were a bit short but all pretty good.

    Jack Swagger looks like a beast. Regardless of him acting in WWE, you can see he's a legit wrestler. He's got plenty of work to do on his stand up game but I'm looking forward to his next fight.

    Aaron Pico's next fight is going to be interesting. He's a great boxer (and wrestler) but he's too hotheaded. He should have easily won that fight.

    Fedor can't take a punch anymore and now Bader's champ champ. A bit disappointing as the left hook/jab didn't look like it had much on it but then Fedor is 40.

    it looked better than the 'KO' punch Chris Weidman landed on Anderson Silva in their first fight, cant beleve that was nearly 6 years ago :o

    Anyone watch the NAC meeting? I went on youtube noticed it's been streamed. It's not looking good for Jon Jones to get a license for UFC 235.

    After hearing USADA's responses to NAC's questions, they are really shady. The USADA representive just lied under oath, he claimed Andy Foster (Head of California State Athletic Commission) knew about Jon Jones's test results from the tests undertaken in August and September when allowing Jon to fight in California. Andy Foster then texts Bob Bennett (Executive Director of NAC) and says he didn't know about them and USADA didn't notify them of the failed tests.

    I really don't see the point of USADA after this.
