A reason why I think he didn't stop it for that reason is because he was just about ready to stop the fight as soon as the second question left his mouth. He didn't exactly wait for an answer. As he said after the fight he was concerned about Taylor's condition mainly. What does condition mean? Is it the swelling, the blood, the punishment he was taking, or is it his unresponsiveness?
.............My honest opinion is that when Steele is on his deathbed, he'll admit to having a bit of a brainfart that night. I think he just felt the excitement and drama of a tense situation in which he had to make a decision, and he slipped. I really don't think there's any more to it than that.
