Following in theme with our last article about late stoppages, this article is all about the early stoppages. Sometimes, for some reason, refs think that a fighter is out, has tapped, or has been knocked out, and they stop the fight. Unfortunately, that is sometimes not the case, and the fans and fighters are robbed of a full fight. It does not happen too often, but when it does, most people never forget.

#10 Ben Rothwell vs. Cain Velasquez: Steve Mazzagatti
