    Possible early stoppage? is an early stoppage any stoppage where the fighter isn't dead? Because Magana got her shit pushed in.

    I don't want to tell the mods how to do their job, but can we ban this chick from the spot? Like, no more posting stories about her?

    Stoppages aren't contingent upon how hurt a fighter is, they're contingent on a fighters' ability to defend. If you are not defending yourself you enable the ref to make an intervening decision.

    These terms are explained to fighters before and during a fight. If those terms are unacceptable then pursue another vocation.

    If she is still talking the stoppage was obviously early.

    Does anyone think since WME took over the fights have been stopped sooner?

    Does Angela realize it is up to the ref and not WME when a fight gets stopped?

    I don't think she does realize it. Maybe she's brain damaged and the fight was stopped late?

    Unintelligently defending yourself is not an intelligent defense.

    Oh wait, is she talking about in the media or during the fight.

    Exactly, a thousand times ^this^
    There’s no way a promotion can tell refs to police fights differently just because the ownership has changed or for any reason for that matter. This girl gets dumber by the day.

    You know what's funny? When I first saw her on TUF and they showed a few interviews of her at home and she talked about her philosophy on life I was able to relate. It seemed like her and I had a lot of the same views. Ever since then I haven't been able to even tolerate her.

    Such an extreme 180 degree shift.

    She's just awful. not that she's 'not a good fighter' she's awful.

    I listened to her call in to Ariel's show a few years ago and she was actually claiming that the UFC had told her they wanted her to be the spokesperson for Puerto Rico or somewhere.

    whatever, she's jsut clinging to whatever straws she can find to keep herself being talked about. just let me slither away and be done with it. WMMA is better without her in it

    lol if you want to see how badly she got shut down by ariel just listen to this.



    not sure if I linked it right. if not, go to 3:11:20 and be ready to shake your head./, she had clearly written down 'material' to use calling into that show and got just humiliated.
