Last night (Oct. 1) at UFC on Versus 6: "Cruz vs. Johnson" in Washington D.C., Anthony Johnson knocked out Charlie Brenneman with a head kick in the first round.

Or at least that's what the official records will say.

However, the result is in dispute by pundits and fans alike. Directly after Johnson landed a clean, unimpeded kick straight to Brenneman's face, referee Mario Yamasaki immediately rushed in to call a stop to the action.

This was much to the dismay of "The Spaniard," who landed on his elbows and appeared to be in complete control of his faculties. He vehemently protested the stoppage but, as is always the case, what's done is done.

The debate, though, will continue. And that's where you come in, Maniacs.

After the jump are a pair of gifs (via IronForgesIron) to illustrate the finish and you can vote in a poll whether or not the fight was stopped far before it should have been.



It certainly looks close. UFC President Dana White had no problem with the stoppage but do you?
