    Cruising around the MMA blogosphere today and I found this nice little gem. Watch at the 6:37 mark when the action really begins!

    I was pretty impressed, not only does the ref have excellent form he wastes ZERO time getting the fighter off his opponent. Can you imagine Herb Dean or Dan Mirgliotta doing this?

    I can see Big Dan doing it because he has all the intelligence of a Box of Rocks. I can definitely see Herb Dean doing it because he has actually won fights with submissions but the next time the ref waves off the fight damn man make sure you follow his orders!

    Pretty amazing albeit quick fight and a great GIF Image.

    Um, why did he put that fighter in a choke hold? Seems he could have just as easily pulled him off... like a normal ref.

    A refs job is to protect the fighters which he could have easily done without putting one fighter in a choke hold. Nothing in the slightest impressive about this, and in fact it's a little repulsive. That ref should be fired.

    youre an idiot, did you not see him pounding the unconscious guy? Besides thats not a choke hold, its a simple back control with the arms over under.

    He clearly ended the fight and the fighter kept on striking his opponent. He restrained him in order to stop him from giving his opponent any further and unnecessary damage. He didn't choke him out or anything but rather controlled him until he regained his self control.

    The fighter had 2-4 unanswered unprotected shots counting the one on the chin that knocked him out. Even AFTER the ref pulled him off he had 1 hit in on him unable to defend himself.

    I think the ref was justified although this was not really a choke as he was restraining him like Big Dan Mirgliotta did the same to stop Paul Daley after he pimp slapped Koschek.

    Thank god the ref wasn't Steve mazzagati. He would have ended up helping the guy beat the unconscious one

    It's called back control. You don't have to apply an RNC to take their back with hooks in. Nothing wrong with this. The other fighter was trying to GnP the other dude after Roberts had stopped it, now THAT'S repulsive.

    If we're getting down to brass tacks here, taking the back with hooks in to prevent a guy from GnPing his opponent after a stoppage is fucking legendary.

    This is an incredibly stupid response made by someone who don't train.

    Lol at calling back control "a choke hold" in an MMA context.

    I love a good idiot-shaming.

    I don't think truebeliever will be showing up in this thread again any time soon.

    Agreed whole heartedly. I thought it was funny when the fighter that just lost got up and looked at the ref and his opponent like "What the fuck?".
