UFC 36: Elvis Sinosic vs. Evan Tanner
Was this fight stopped too soon? Should Elvis have been allowed to continue working his submission attempt before the doctor was called in? Should the doctor have allowed the cutman to fix it up and send him back in? Was the fighter’s safety at risk in this situation? What’s your opinion? In this month’s FCF Survey we’d like to hear what the fans have to say about some of the controversial stoppages they’ve seen.
Some of the commentary we receive may appear in the May 2002 issue of FCF
