No doubt Chuck was afraid to go to the ground with Horn. The last thing he wanted was to get caught on the ground trying to ground and pound, and end up in Horn's world.
Horn complained of double vision after the third round, and after taking a few more shots to the eyes, he stopped the fight himself, as to not get permanently injured. He's a true fighter, and I'm sure he would have loved nothing more than to go another round and a half. But he obviously thought the vision was a serious enough problem.
Chuck gave him everything he could, and still couldn't knock him out. Don't get me wrong, he stunned him a few times, but if you watch the fight again, you'll notice that anytime Horn went to the ground, he covers with one hand, and tries to pull Chuck's leg in for a sweep of some sort. He was always working on the ground, trying to make Chuck come to his world.
It was a great fight and I can't wait to see the rematch. Since they are now 1 and 1
