"Big Dan, he allowed Rozenstruik's body language and how he walked off to control the outcome of that fight, as opposed to him being the referee and him being the one in control," Blaydes told the Post. "I think he allowed Rozenstruik to tell him the fight was over.
"I mean, it's in the moment," Blaydes added. "It's a five-round fight, and these are big dudes. I'm not going to condemn Big Dan, because that's a hard job. It's a job I don't envy, and I'm not going to condemn him for [his decision]. But do I think it was premature stoppage? Yeah."
