    Good for Rory… he should have gotten the win bonus too though! He may be too much of a class act to say it was an unfair stoppage but it definitely was.

    Condit landed the blow and then layed down for a break and THEN the fight was stopped! Total garbage… could have easily let it go 7 more seconds!

    Sure, the Ref could have let it go another 7 seconds, but he easily could have stopped it sooner as well.

    Rory is a beast and a future Champion for sure !

    Great to see him get a huge bonus. His stock rises even with a loss after a fight like that. Can’t wait to see him again.

    I saw that too. Right when the stoppage was made I was like WTF why stop it when the guy stops hitting him, Condit might not have even thrown another punch in that last seven seconds. I would have given him a 10-8 round though and made the fight a draw.

    Yeah was my impression as well – was waiting and waiting for the ref to stop the fight, and then it got to the point where you just figured he wouldn’t. It could easily have been stopped a minute and a half before, but it totally seemed odd/bad timing after Condit laid down on MacDonald with only a few seconds left. Definitely would have been a draw had it gone the distance.

    Most enjoyable fight of the night, can’t wait for MacDonald’s next bout!

    I think the ref was already moving in to stop it before Condit laid down. The timing just looked bad on camera.

    I thought it was an early stoppage as well, but it was still and EXCELLENT fight. MacDonald looked very good for the the first 2 and a half rounds. I look forward to watching him fight again.
