    That's not what happened???? You can dispute the stoppage if you want, though I personally feel it was an appropriate stoppage, but you cannot dispute the video evidence of Thompson's ear exploding like Vesuvius from Ferguson's punches.

    I'm with you Dingo, it was a good stop. I believe Thompson had been hurt badly earlier in the fight. He was given a chance to continue but when a man continues to get in trouble and is bloodied up badly, you have to say enough is enough at some point. You can't just leave him in there to take more of a beating. The ref made a good call.

    I always believe in erring on the side of caution. The reward far outweighs the risk.

    Cauliflower ear exploding =/= rearranging facial structure.

    Any way you word it ZApp, Kimbo rocked Thompson with some big shots and the ear exploded, just as the big man began to wobble. If not then, when do you stop a fighter who has already previously been rocked badly in the fight?

    A simple thumbs up to the ref would have saved Thompson.

    1. The fight was stopped at least 10 seconds after the ear exploded.

    2. Rocked badly is a subjective term. He wasn't stumbling, he was hurt. He should have been given the chance.

    1.Yes, they gave him a good 10 seconds or so to try to survive, before finally mercifully saving him froma further beating. Sounds about right to me.

    2.He was stumbling, as a result of being hurt. He was given a chance, earlier in the fight, and he found himself in a world of danger yet again.

    The ref must determine if the fighter is taking too much damage and if so, save him from further damage or injury.

    We've disagreed in the past, on if the referee should determine if a fighter is taking damage or not, so this may be a case of just needing to agree to disagree.
