    MMA fights being stopped too early?

    I don't know about how you guys, but I think the UFC and WEC fights are being stopped to early, especially from punches. A guy gets knocked down, and a lot of times ref jumps in before seeing if fighter is really hurt. I don't know what solution is, but too many times a guy gets caught (like Liddell) and it's over. What also bothers me, is MMA guys don't seem to take a good punch and may be one reason why fights end early....

    So your main style is 'Mixed martial Arts'?

    Have you ever been hit with a boxing gloves and compared it to 4-ounce gloves?

    lidell was fucked. i dont know whats wrong with you but that fight was stopped exactly when it was needed to, he was floored and unlike kickboxing/boxing he wasnt going to get 10 seconds to recover.

    You don't know what you're talking about. Liddell didn't complain, so you shouldn't be either.

    Here's what you should do...have one of your friends put on a 10oz boxing glove and punch you as hard as he can. Then have him put on a 4oz MMA glove and do the same thing. Then, when you wake up, let us know if your thoughts have changed.

    edit: chances are you'll be knocked out by both actually, but either way you'll see why stopping the fight is necessary when a guy goes down and can't protect himself.

    I've been hit enough times to know how it feels like. The guys just can't take punches like boxers do. The size of the gloves is really irrelavent. You can get knocked out with 16 oz gloves. Liddell like most of the other MMA guys are out of balance when they get hit, thus the flash KOs. Notice how they are upright with their chins up in the air.

    This statement is so bizarre that it's hard to take seriously. There's a big difference between getting hit with 20oz. gloves and 16oz. gloves, let alone tiny 4oz. gloves.

    Not only that, but how many boxers can take a muay thai roundhouse to their unprotected ribs. Your hands/arms can't protect everything all the time. See Gonzaga v CroCop. CroCop blocked his midsection, but got kicked the the head. In boxing if you are in danger you can go over and hump the guy until the ref breaks you apart.

    There is no difference between MMA (4oz) and Boxing gloves?

    Please tell me you are kidding. I've been hit with MMA and 16oz gloves there is a difference.

    Yes, both can be used to knock you out but the less padding.....yeah shut up.

    Yes, the chin in the air is what makes the susceptible. If you're implying that boxers are somehow more able to take a punch you're wrong. It's a combination of where you get hit, and how your positioned. The innate ability to just plain take a punch is part of this too, but boxers aren't more equipped with this than mma fighters. MMA fighters simply have to watch for much wider array of attacks than boxers thus leaving their chin open more often. How often does a boxer have to worry about kicks to the legs and body, or a shot for a takedown in addition to punches to the head and body. Also, not all mma fighters are upright with their chins in the air...case in point RAMPAGE. GSP is usually pretty good about keeping his chin tucked too. Basically, you're just lumping the entire MMA community together with a few people. Also, you may have been hit, but how often have you been hit like these fighters?

    I've never fought MMA (sparred a little for fun) so I'm really just asking a question as oppossed to arguing but why would the option leg kicks and take downs make fighters stick their chins up in the air more? Does it have something to do with the sprawl? Or defense for kicks?
