Horrible Referees are a blight on this sport, and this guy is worse than most.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. A fighter takes a beating and absorbs way too much punishment while a referee looks on seemingly removed from the situation. We’ve all seen it, and at times have had some fun with it. That being said, there was nothing fun here when a fighter literally could not stand on his feet after three attempts and the horrible referee did not halt the action. This was back in November of 2016, but I’d never seen it. The fans were all calling for the stoppage but the ref was oblivious. Eventually, the event promoter was forced to throw in the towel.
It didn’t get better from there as angry fans and friends of the downed fighter attempted to enter the cage and exact their revenge on the inadequate referee. The order was restored before things turned really ugly, but this guy simply should never again be in a position to control a fight’s destiny. He’s dangerous and bad at his job.
Take a look at the video to get a feel for what we’re talking about.
