Lots of Controversy In The Fight Night Oklahoma Main Event

Last night at UFC Fight Night 112 from Oklahoma, Kevin Lee defeated Michael Chiesa, but that wasn’t the end of it.

Of course Dana White immediately weighed in with a well thought out response:

Mario Mazzagatti does it again!!! This guy is more concerned with doing this dumb ass heart bullshit then Ref’n the fight!!! Steals a great moment from Lee or let Mike fight it or tap. Nobody gives a shit that u can make a heart with ur hands like a 12 year old girl they want u to pay attention to what’s going on in the fight and do ur job.

This bout will unfortunately largely be remembered in the negative because of an early stoppage by referee Mario Yamasaki. But, was it really that egregious?

Coming into the last minute of the round, Lee had Chiesa’s back and locked in a choke. Despite Chiesa attempting to escape, Lee then locked in a gable grip choke. He had him. Chiesa was fading. The ref stepped in a little early, yes, but Chiesa was done. Look at his face. Once Lee let him go, Chiesa jumped up and confronted the ref. But if Yamasaki had waited, would it have ended differently? Probably not. Still, he should have probably waited that little extra time to avoid this mess.

Felice Herrig Feels She Isn’t “Young And Beautiful” Enough for UFC To Promote Her

Felice Herrig opened up after an emotional win:

“Honestly, if you want to know the truth, I just feel like I’m not young and beautiful for the UFC to want to promote me. It’s sad because I’ve really worked hard to be here. It’s hard to see these people who’ve not been through what I’ve been through and just got to the UFC at the right time, and they’re now getting all these opportunities.

“I’ve seen how hard I’ve worked to get here, and it just doesn’t matter because I just feel I’m not pretty enough, and I’m not getting any younger.”

“I just think that my performances are going to keep speaking volumes. I think fans, the people and the media see and recognize I just beat two undefeated fighters, two really good undefeated fighters that were no joke. Alexa Grasso is no joke. Justine Kish is no joke. Anyone in this sport that’s not just a casual fan knows better. I don’t need a fancy trophy to tell me I’m good or to tell me what I’m made of I know.”

“I’m not trying to make this like a point finger at the UFC or Dana White or anybody. I know they have a business to run. … I’m not the only fighter who feels like this. … We put a lot out there as fighters, and I don’t know – I feel like I’ve paid my dues, and nobody can deny that.

“I’m a UFC fighter, and I’ve worked my way to the top, so I would like a little more love. That’s it.”

BTW, really UFC? This woman is gorgeous.

Meanwhile, on a lighter note, her opponent Justine Kish had an unfortunate accident during the bout where she pooped her pants. She posted this tweet after the event:
