With Ortiz's privilage position in a very phyically demanding sport, especially with Ortiz coming to this fight with every physical advantage possible, he quit when it got too rought for him. You think Lopez was having a sweet time in there? Lopez was being overpowered and beaten. Look at his face. Lopez knew this was the fight of his life and fought like it. Considering Ortiz's history of quiting and his body langauge after landing big shots on Lopez and Lopez lifting his gloves for more. At the momment Ortiz was heart had left the ring. Look back at the take, and you will see Ortiz back pedaling intimidatly after Lopez waves his gloves to fight even when Ortiz was beating on Lopez hard.
It doesn't matter how much a fighter is making. Fights are stopped because of severe cuts, you do not believe that a broken jaw is more severe or dangerous than a cut of the skin. LMAO!!!!
You have never even been in a ring yet you talk boldly as if you know what it's like. Whether he quit in other fights or not, Ortiz can not be blamed for stopping the fight because of a broken jaw. You are clueless.......Rockin'
