Babalu is right. Stann fell over and turtled immediately tapping without getting hit. If this was EliteXC people would be calling it a fix. It was just proof the WEC needs to scrap that division and NOT send them to the UFC. There's not one LHW I can think of in the UFC that wouldn't demolish Stann in one round.
Other than that - awesome fight card.
100% disagree. Stann was getting hit and hit hard. from the opening minutes i knew he would lose. he was getting outclassed and eating some serious knees and punches. im surprised he was able to last as long as he did since Cantwell was throwing some nasty shots.
Exactly. Stann showed a warrior's heart in that fight. I thought he was going down on numerous occasions.
As for them gassing- when was the last time you saw two LHW's go at each other like that? I mean seriously they looked like light weights out there with the pace they were keeping. Granted their conditioning isn't on the level of other LHW's out there I'm sure, but both guys put everything on the line and deserve all the respect in the world.
I knew I picked wrong 30 seconds into the bout when it looked like an overrated boxer vs. a well versed kickboxer. Cantwell did the right thing by taking Stann's heart and confidence away in the first few minutes.
I honestly couldn't have thought of a better or more classy way to be in defeat than Stann was, though. I was never a real big fan of his before that post fight interview. Now I'm deeply impressed with his own humility toward the fight game.
