I recently rewatched the diaz daley fight after reading an article on the excellent middleasy.com where daley is asking for a rematch. At the time of the fight I thought it was a good stoppage, but on second viewing daley is still active and defending himself on the ground. you can rewatch the fight here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2w0zfeMA8Ic
It was maybe a little early, but I don't think anyone could have any real complaints. Save that they wanted to see more of that fight
I think so
he couldn't even stand up straight, no.
i think if you stop a fight 3 seconds before the end of a round the guy has to be in real danger, and i just dont think daley was. he was obviously hurt, but i think he was still "intelligently defending".
good stoppage. I don't see any reason why Diaz should take a rematch.
Yes it bloody well was, Daley makes a great point that McCarthy is the same ref who just a few weeks later let Hominick get smashed to bits and never saw fit to end the fight
Definitely. Daley had plenty left.
Yup, daft stoppage imo.
