1 submission
4 KO/TKO/ref stoppage

Does that mean the UFC rules don't favor grapplers anymore?

In the UFC, what are the reffs considering a TKO?

It can't be the same as boxing (generally 3 knockdowns in a round). So are they just considering that he would have been knocked out if the figh continued? I've been seeing more and more TKOs in MMA events.


If you pr!ck us, do we not bleed? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? If we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that the villany you teach me, I will execute, and it shall go hard but I will better the instruction. MOV

Things listed as TKO's are usually referee stoppages. If the ref sees that one side is clearly striking the snot out of the other, he'll stop the fight. Sometimes they're listed as "referee stoppage from strikes."
