That would have been an undisputable stoppage in MMA
One of these victories happened in December 2008 in Liverpool where Bacon was set to fight Vinny Lopez at Christmas Cracker 08. Bacon unleashed a barrage of left-right punches and finally dropped his opponent face down to the mat. Be it an MMA clash the fight would most likely be stopped by the referee as Lopez looked out of this world even after he got back on his feet. However, the referee started to count for Lopez and when he got to ‘eight’, he allowed Vinny to continue. Honestly, the ref didn’t look too sure about his decision, neither was Lopez, but what’s done is done – a second after the break Lopez was knocked out unconscious and dropped in the referee’s tender arms.
