    The punishment for late stoppages should be going a bonus round with the winning fighter.

    what an idiot in the 3rd to last one. dude watches other dudes mouth guard go flying, then goes to nonchalantly pick it up before realizing dudes now getting punched directly in the teeth. FAIL!

    The last one was the worst. Guy goes limp and the winner actually stops until the ref shrugs as if to say "I guess keep hitting, he doesn`t look dead yet."

    It used to be considered chicken$#!+ to hit someone when he`s down. I still do.

    Some of these were pretty bad, others not so much.

    A lot of these fighters complain ad nauseam when the ref stops the fight "too early" in their opinion. More than once I`ve seen guys get clearly knocked the hell out only to argue with the ref after coming to for stopping the fight.

    Still, a few of these were pretty late stoppages. Others, I can sort of understand the ref wanting to give certain fighters every chance. Especially guys like Mark Munoz who are notoriously tough as nails and have come back from similar or worse beatings to win the fight.

    No one likes the zebras. Such a thankless job. :-D

    i agree the last one was the worst, clearly the guy wasn`t defending himself and the reaction from what i suppose is his corner and the woman in the background tell enough.

    I`ll never understand how one human can do that to another - especially for sport and not in a real life or death situation.

    Those are just the signals of the fall of an empire.Romans have experienced the same thing with gladiators. When a massacre is showed as entertainment for the people an empire is crumpling.

    Which empire would that be MMA isn`t a specific countries sport it`s world wide. Now show me the massacre again wouldn`t that require murder? The Roman empire had gladiator fights for most of it`s entire span BTW.

    a quick wikipedia search tells me that 4 MMA fighters have died since 2007 as a direct result of a fight. It`s just the latest sport to feed off of poverty to recruit expendable men/women eager for a chance to make a living. I`m sure at the very top of this `sport` there is another room full of white guys sitting pretty without a bruise on their body, raking it in.

    Yes it`s the white devils conspiracy to keep all the white guys seen in these clips down.....

    "a quick wikipedia search tells me that 4 MMA fighters have died since 2007 as a direct result of a fight."

    Wow, because a quick search of just high school and college football deaths revealed that, on average, 12 players are killed each year during games or practice. (243 have been killed between July 1990 and June 2010). So which is the more dangerous and barbaric sport? And we`re not even talking about serious injuries like concussions or paralysis - just deaths; otherwise the numbers look even worse for amateur football.

    Also, a quick search of the most dangerous sports (based on number of injuries and deaths) showed MMA is less dangerous than football, soccer, baseball, softball, cheerleading, gymnastics, horse riding, bull riding, cave diving, and big wave surfing just to name a few. In fact, MMA didn`t even make many of the lists compiled by experts.

    These are the facts, folks. I didn`t make them up - search for yourself!
