I'm curious what others thought about the ref stopping the fight temporarily near the end. Not only was it in the middle of a sub attempt, it was at the most crucial point of a kimura. I thought it was beyond bogus. Thoughts?

it was crazy to watch him digging in their crotches to pull up gracies pants. i dont know WTF was going on there but it was terrible timing and maybe ruined sakus chance of winning.

Yep, my thoughts as well. Aside from something directly impacting fighter safely, I can't honestly think of any reason why a ref would stop a fight in the middle of a sub attempt.

I found that bizarre as well.
I liked the fight but that seemed very fishy.

I thought he was giving Sakuraba mount. I doubt they would hose Sakuraba, but I thought thats what they where doing to Gracie.
