I thought all of the stoppages were warranted. I'm not sure of the actual rules, but imho, a fighter doesn't necessarily need to be out cold to warrant the stop (that's why there's a "T" in "TKO"). As I understand it, if a fighter is clearly about to be clubbed into next week, it's over.
The one fight that people aren't complaining about was Kenny Florian's win over Joe Lauzon, and I agree that there was nothing to dispute. Lauzon wasn't particularly hurt, he wasn't unconscious, he was
defending himself... and he was getting his butt handed to him. The ref was, imho, perfectly correct to declare Florian the winner without making Florian actually bludgeon Lauzon into a puddle of goo.
So I give Mazzagatti a
for shaving the 'stache, but a
for his refereeing.
And I like Karo Parisyan less and less every time I see him.
