On this week’s edition of ESPN MMA Live, Jon Anik and crew recap UFC 116, plus Josh Rosenthal stops by to explain why he didn’t stop the Lesnar-Carwin fight in the first round.

“He took some hard shots when they were against the fence. He was looking for a way out. He was blocking some punches. At one point he tried to spin to push Shane away and took a couple shots. And then again, went for a deep half guard position and took a couple more shots. When he curled up after that is when I commanded him to fight back, which at that point he did, and then he went for feet on the hips to push Carwin away and was able to get to his knees. He pretty much ran with it. He heard — he responded to my commands.”
