Here is a link to some photos from the event: Gallery :: Mike Campbell v Justin Hammerstrum
Scroll to the bottom. Apparently, the head kick was not to the face, so all that damage was done after the ref stopped the fight. The ref was already stopping it before Hammerstrum even hit the mat, and the guy teed off for 5 or 6 shots. This is the type of event that could set MMA back to the late 90's

I could justify 1, maybe 2 of this punches, but that **** is uncalled for. You can tell he was out from that HK, but he kept blasting away.

WTF....that guys eye is f'd bad in those gallery photos.
And he was already down before those hits occurred.
Its behavior like this that makes me change the channel when this **** comes on.

Fining the purse is pretty worthless, since it is probably tiny anyway. This was a title fight. Should the title be stripped?
What sort of suspension does this guy deserve?

This guy should be suspended and should vacate the title.

My point was not that it was the ref's fault, but that I have seen in UFC for example a ref (I think it was Mazagatti) really tackle a guy immediately after the other fighter was out and the guy kept swinging.
I am all about personal responsibility.

this guy is a tool...what if the guy died? i know its not likely but could you imagine the backlash? the last thing the mma world needs right now is a death..especially from something like this

For the record, the guy did apologize numerous times at massmma.net (Joe Lauzon is one of the editors, and the guy who authored the thread with most of the discussion). The fighter, Campbell, claimed that it was just his intensity, and he thought the ref was Justin trying to get guard. He went on to take full responsibility for what he did, and to tell all his friends who were trying to defend his actions that he did not deserve their defense. Nonetheless, 99% of local fans are against this guy, myself among them. He was clearly out of control and will not be fighting for a while. I'll update you guys when I hear about the Commission's decision.

Personally I feel it is absolutely ridiculous. He should be disqualified. I absolutely HATE it when fighters do this. It happens all of the time in MMA and although people say, "Well how would I know if he is knocked out or able to defend himself?" It is blatantly obvious. Take the Gonzaga vs. Cro Cop fight for example. You are telling me that he didn't know that kick completely put Cro Cop out? Heck hit him once more maybe, but there is no need to go after someone like that when they are down. Have some respect and control yourself. It is a fight between men and it is a sport, not some savage, backyard, fight to the death. One day someone is going to die and the federal hammer is going to come down.

not to mention i think those 2 looked highly unmatched.... thats the crazy thing bout mma though, some crazy awesome fighters out there that look like D&D nerds with no physique.

Yep, a guy from my gym who is soft and not especially strong destroyed a fighter who was absolutely shredded and juiced to the gills (gyno and all). Looks are meaningless in MMA. If you have any doubt, poopy, just look at Fedor.
