Frank Mir is so washed up. It's so sad.

The stoppage was fine. Mir had nothing to offer. He was getting manhandled.

He dropped like a sack of bricks and his arms looked to go limp. Sorry but that was a good stoppage.

Mir looked like he got his frontal lobe kneed in to his skull there. Ok stoppage in my book. Raises the question of why how little concussions are reported in the aftermath of events like this. None come to mind really.

I'd like to see the replay again. The way he fell looked bad, but it also seems like his leg slipped back making it look worse than it was. Normally people only drop in a heap like that when they are out cold, but obviously he wasnt considering he stood up immediately and walked without any trouble.

So what if Mir was getting manhandled? Its only the 1st round! Comebacks happen in the UFC all the time, in any sports.

Ref messed it up.

You do realize the fight was over right ? Watch Mir's body go limp...if Barnett keeps hammering there and the ref doesn't step in your looking at a serious head injury.

The ref should be congratulated for seeing what he saw...not ridiculed.

It was on the early side but Mir went limp and took a solid knee.

I like Mir, so I thought it was a bad stoppage at first. After the replays, he was out. It came back quick, but I don't think it was a bad stoppage. It was a safe stoppage, which is something we don't always see.

Let's go Pettis.

Thing is, if it wasn't stopped, Mir takes 2 or more shots to the had and then it is stopped.

I agree. I used to be a big fan, but he lost his killer instinct and will to fight a long time ago.

Yup. I wish for once that they would say, ok, you think youre fine? Ok, time in. Then watch him get pummeled into unconsciousness. Mir wasnt ever going to come back in that fight.

I rarely see the ref checking the fighters ask them to take out their mouthguard and then checking inside their mouth for whatever. Is that unusual or not?

Maybe, but you have to let it happen.

Stoppage was probably 2 seconds too early. Or maybe the fight goes another 10 minutes, who knows.

Benson used to have a toothpick in his mouth when he fought. So it's not normal other than for him.
