    You know what im talking about.

    IMO, yeah early cause ken didn't look even semi-unconscious. But seriously, it was 5 elbows in a row, Herb was in a tough spot

    Bell rings, Shamrock throws punches right away, tito shoots for double, gets single, picks up shamrock, slams him, works towards the fence, throws 5 elbows to the face, herb steps in and stops the fight, shamrock stands right up, crowd boos, tito does his digging pose thing.

    all in 2 min.

    After they didn't stop the Eve Ewdards fight (bloodiest I've seen), how could they stop this fight (5 years in the making)... To me, if you stop a fight, I'd expect the loser to stay on the mat for at least a few mins.... Shamrock stood up in like .001 seconds after idiot ref called it...

    very true, it was too unexpected. Wish somehow they could've overruled and let the fight continue - but now PPV gets another 40 goddamn bucks from the rematch for all of us, whenever it goes down :mad:

    either way Tito rocks my world, and rocked Shamrock's old tired face for a few brief glorious moments

    I can see why some considered it early, but 5-6(I counted 6) unanswered elbows with no defense. No head movement, no hip movement, hands not covering. He might not have been out, but he only has him self to blame for not defending himself.

    Shamrock needs to learn to defend himself if he doesnt want this to keep happening, this is the 2nd time he's had an "early stoppage"

    In both cases the stoppages were just. It's up to the ref to make sure a fighter doesnt take more damange than he should.

    I do wish and think the fight could have went longer. However, Shamrock was making no attampt to guard the elbows what-so-ever. I'm sure Ortiz can throw one mean fucking elbow with them getting harder and harder every time. If he didn't calll the fight I could see Shamrock taking a few more then being out of it. He wasnt even trying to put up a fight after the first one connected.

    6 straight, fast, and hard elbows to the face while Ken was just flopping there and blocking with his face.

    It was a good stoppage.

    I think the stoppage was about two-three elbows early. It was almost as bad as the Arlovski vs Buentello fight.

    Herb could have let it go on longer, but who's to say that Tito wouldn't have added another 5 or 6 elbows? All you guys are saying: "Shamrock got up and was fine..." - that's because Herb STOPPED the fight before he went unconcious. Anyways, I would have loved to see more, but Kens dumbass should have just put a hand up to block and it would have.

    just barely early, if it all

    Ken just added fuel to the fire of the audience by getting up and acting like nothing happened
