    Coker should delete that tweet. Not a good look.

    that fighter through the senses of his paradigm experienced a literal violent death. Thats terrible, fortunately he will wake up from this one. ref needs to be fined imo.

    Gotta love a former fighter that still makes sacrifices to the JBG.

    True but right now Coker will use it because controversy sells so it's fair play in Bellator land with one of their local refs as usual (only good one they got is Mike Beltran)

    Lol, Bellator shouldn’t show their highlights because fighters getting brutally finished in an ass kicking contest Is a “bad look”

    meanwhile, UFC used a bus attack felony to hype their fights...but Coker is desperate because he highlighted one of the better finishes from the card.

    Bellator gets their refs from the commissions same as UFC?

    not sure what the issue is with this stoppage....the guy went out...Sergio told Trigg he was out and Trigg stopped it immediately....whats the problem?

    No, they should edit them to highlight the finish and not the incompetence of the ref assigned to their fight. It’s optics. I can’t stand Dana but he would’ve rightfully blasted a ref that did anything like this. Here are the top replies to the tweet fwiw.

    I've seen worse in the UFC so not a biggie.

    Better that Coker shows that brutal finish - it is fighting after all - than push a criminal who feels the need to punch the elderly and assault women in hotel rooms.

    Turns out that Trigg's philosophy on officiating was inspired by the guy who reffed his fight with Robbie.
