he didnt let it go, hardy got out because GSP took a moment to decide.....and you can fight with a dislocated shoulder, a broken arm etc.
Apparently the ref's and athletic commissions aren't aware of that. Remember when Frank Mir broke Tim Sylvia's arm and Herb Dean stopped the fight?
Just for fun, here's the definition of a TKO from the New Jersey State Athletic Commission
# Technical Knockout (TKO)
* Referee Stoppage: the referee may stop a match in progress if:
o a fighter becomes dominant to the point where the opponent is unable to intelligently defend himself from attacks, which may occur as quickly as a few seconds;
o a fighter appears to be unconscious from a grappling hold;
o a fighter appears to have developed significant injuries in the referee's view, such as a broken bone.
