"Once he stepped forward BOOM I exploded and I felt it. I felt it on my two knuckles and it went up my arm and then down my leg and I was like 'Wow, I got him.' I knew it [was over] he was stumbling and I stepped back and hit an uppercut and dropped him then went for two hammerfists. I thought it was a justifiable stoppage. CB is a friend of mine and I wouldn't want to hurt him more than that."
Justifiable stoppage? Munoz certainly thinks so. Referee Mario Yamasaki had to endure the boo-birds after pulling the Filipino from his downed opponent after "The Doberman" was put to sleep with a series of punches. While he quickly jumped up to protest, instant replay confirms he was parked on queer street with several quarters in the meter and Munoz explains how one of his hammerfists likely woke him back up. Anyone think Dollaway would have survived if the fight was allowed to continue? Or did Yamasaki exercise proper judgment? Hear Munoz's side of the story (courtesy of Sherdog.com) after the jump.
