Doesn't the stoppage seem a little premature? Daley seems pretty cognizant.
The UG has spoken. I'll happily sit on the shun bench.
Lets be honest, bro. Daley had nothing left for Nick.
I was on my feet that whole fight.
No argument there. Great fight.
Good stoppage, Daley struggled to get to the stool.
Great fight though
This was such a crazy fight.
Briggy - Not premature when the guy is helpedExactly. Nick even tried to get the camera man to point his camera at Daley. Nick is that seasoned, IMO he knew people would say early stoppage so he tried to get the cameraman to catch that.
onto the stool 20 seconds after and was still wobbly
MySonTommyGunn -We're a rare breed, you and I. At least so far.Eskoe1 - Lets be honest, bro. Daley had nothing left for Nick.Why? If the ref let it go the last few seconds Paul would of had a minute to recover and it would of been a fight again, and yes OP I do think it was a touch premature to.
i initially thought it was an early stoppage, but as the seconds wore on and Daley was clearly out of it, i accepted that it was a fine stoppage. It's similar to Hominick/Roop, that fight seemed like it was stopped too soon, then Roop tries to get up, and his legs were still gone.
This fight is fucking amazing, it shows that if you try to stand there and fight Nick Diaz, Nick Diaz will beat you.
MySonTommyGunn -Who's to say that even if he made it out of the round if Daley would have been able to continue. He had to be helped onto the stool the doctor would have looked at that and gone in and checked on him and most likely called it.Eskoe1 - Lets be honest, bro. Daley had nothing left for Nick.Why?

Daley was wobbly when he got up. Legit stoppage.
There was another camera shot where it showed Diaz dropping some heavy hands on Daley before it was stopped.
Greatest. Sport. Ever.
Great fucking fight.
Awesome fight. It was crazy to see Diaz walk Daley down like that, especially after getting dropped.
One of the best rounds ever IMHO.
IM THE ONE FIGHTING HITTERS. HE AINT FIGHTING ANY BIG HITTERS LIKE ME.
Man I hope Nick gets back to fighting. I imagine it'll come down to economics...
The thing about Nick Diaz is that he would've come out for round two and continued at the pace he set in round one, and it's hard for me to imagine that Daley would've been able to do the same...had the fight not been stopped. I'd love to see that rematch some day, but realistically, probably not going to happen.
