Josh Rosenthal spoke with Tapout Radio about his stoppage of Weidman vs Munoz:
You know, I really kind of thought about it after and came home reviewed everything in my mind. In the heat of the moment there, I saw him get clipped with the elbow, he went down. I saw him trying to post himself up to gain some position and I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and let him keep rolling. But you know, in hindsight I think I may have let a few more punches in than I probably should have. I think I was a little late getting in there to stop that to be honest.
When asked if his "in hindsight" comments meant he reviewed the tape, he responded:
Yeah I try to watch as much footage as I can of fights, especially when I feel like there's something that I may have missed or missed a step. I came home and I watched it and I was kinda like "you know, if I was sitting here watching this on the couch I probably would've been talking smack about myself"
I personally have given praise in the past to Rosenthal's excellent management of fights during Lesnar vs Carwin, Henderson vs Rua, and making a quick, decisive decision to call out Chael Sonnen's possible quick tap in Silva vs Sonnen 1. This is an ugly blip on an otherwise excellent record.
