Teixeira vs Maldonado Fight Should Have Been Stopped

Most would probably say that Fabio Maldonado showed great heart. Yes he did, but referees are there to protect fighters from receiving excessive damage like that. Mario Yamasaki did NOT.

 

There were several points in that fight where it clearly could have (and should have) been stopped. Yamasaki instead allowed the barbaric onslaught to continue. This coming from the same ref that disqualified Eric Silva for tapping the side of Carlo Prater's head with a handful of weak hammer fists that were actually completely legal.

 

Am I missing something here? I realize that referee's are only human (capable of error), but there is still so much inconsistency with the refereeing. What was allowed to continue last night was a ****ing disgrace.

fight should of never been stopped

 

Fabio was coming back

 

OF COURSE most fighters are going to try and keep going, but ref's are there to not only protect fighters from their opponent...but also to protect fighter's from themselves. Fabio could have received permanent brain damage, or even been killed.

 

Any fight fan that would condone this is not a fight fan...just someone looking to see a freak show.

Doing ok? Apparently you are illiterate. There's a big difference between "doing ok"...and that of mindlessly lunging at an opponent out of self preservation of perhaps being killed.
