WHAT!!!!!!! that is seriously the most ridiculous thing ive ever seen.

kbrew007 Says, in 8-3-2012 at 09:42:02 from    

OMG!!! He did tap and he did make it to the bell so…i don’t know what else to say…his tap looked like a punch attempt lol

dydelf Says, in 8-3-2012 at 09:44:28 from    

In his defence the tap looked like a body shots and he wasnt out for to long

refs suck balls

Matticus Says, in 8-3-2012 at 10:06:20 from    

He must not have seen the lyoto machida vs thiago silva fight

mr42069 Says, in 8-3-2012 at 10:08:03 from    

WTF was that? when a guy gets choked unconscious as the round ends that is the end of the fight…this whole organization should be shut down. endangering the fighter

Matticus Says, in 8-3-2012 at 10:08:33 from    

Even the announcer thought Kristie won lol

rgood Says, in 8-3-2012 at 10:10:49 from    

When he tapped out, he did it in such a violent manner, that it looked like he was trying to punch his opponent in the kidney and escape. Tap out the right way, guy had no ground game.

dharmaboy Says, in 8-3-2012 at 10:11:24 from    

Yeah, baby, Bad Reffing but the mutha in Red is a beast, so much heart. Great for a first win. Love how he knew his escapes and capitalized on the black trunks tanking.

Did the Announcer just announce the loser? LOL
Thanks Bruno.

Powertele Says, in 8-3-2012 at 10:18:05 from    

That was crazy. I think they both won????

glenn Says, in 8-3-2012 at 10:21:00 from    

i think that was a perfect call,let them fight to the death

Jindod Says, in 8-3-2012 at 10:31:35 from    

What the?

I want to be a ref. hw do I become a ref?

RogerD Says, in 8-3-2012 at 10:54:56 from    

WHATTTTTT?!?!??! OMG The guy TAPPPPPPED and is choked out unconscious.. and gets to fight in Round 2?! CRAZY

Muay Thai #1 Says, in 8-3-2012 at 10:55:07 from    

Wow, what can you say to that… un believable. Give it up to for the guy that got choked out and then went on to finish. I garuntee he doesnt remember getting chocked out so he just kept fighting. That ref was so bad though.

robbielawler Says, in 8-3-2012 at 11:08:26 from    

hes better than rosenthan and mirgliatta together + herby

NMPLD1987 Says, in 8-3-2012 at 11:14:37 from    

Came back from the dead!

paulwonder27 Says, in 8-3-2012 at 11:19:23 from    

What did I just witness?? the reff needs to find a new profession because the only thing that saved that dude from possible death was the bell what a f****** asshole!.

Nmpld1987 Says, in 8-3-2012 at 11:28:03 from    

I think its new rules, best two out of three. They forgot to put round three in there LOL!

James Says, in 8-3-2012 at 11:28:52 from    

wow that was pretty bad. if the guy is unconsious the fight is over. the ref allowed him to regain consiousness and fight the 2nd round. what if he wouldv’e been put to sleep again. that s*** is way dangerous. although i kept thinking how funny it would be if that guy came back to win so that was actually kind of funny.

ratchola Says, in 8-3-2012 at 11:34:50 from    

¿¿??…it wasnt bad at all……ive seen worst in ufc

ratchola Says, in 8-3-2012 at 11:36:21 from    

the tap look like a slap to the back a opne hand punch

Joe Dog Says, in 8-3-2012 at 13:32:01 from    

Black shorts won the first round by near death submission choke. Red shorts won the 2nd round by G-n-P TKO. There should have been a 3rd round to determine the true winner. Ref is ready for the UFC.

ibunn Says, in 8-3-2012 at 13:33:24 from    

This fight was better than some of the fights on the last ufc ppv.

Looked to me the guy was obviously tapping but with all the terrible mma reffing does this really surprise anyone?

zmayo Says, in 8-3-2012 at 14:01:13 from    

I can sorta understand the ref thinking those were body shots…..butttt when the guy is unconscious and twitching (which most people do when choked out cold) and then clearly not okay andd the fighters corner needs to come in and help out greatly WTF was the ref thinking at that point?


axepittbull Says, in 8-3-2012 at 14:11:22 from    

horrible and sad :(

chris Says, in 8-3-2012 at 14:42:07 from    

looked like he was hitting him with his palm not tapping

Christian Says, in 8-3-2012 at 14:42:07 from    

Wait, how is there a round 2nd?!

Christian Says, in 8-3-2012 at 14:44:18 from    

That should 100% not count as a loss on that guy’s record…. he tapped him out in the first round, chocked him out cold. insane

Taki Says, in 8-3-2012 at 15:14:57 from    

Bloody hell…How do these people get licensed to ref?!?!

juggernautakira Says, in 8-3-2012 at 15:31:55 from    

Wellllll, I would be one pissed puppy if I was the loser.

failsonnen Says, in 8-3-2012 at 15:40:24 from    

It didn’t look like he was tapping more like slapping

HelloWorld Says, in 8-3-2012 at 15:53:20 from    

hell of a comeback though

muppetoflove Says, in 8-3-2012 at 16:20:53 from    

Aside from the WTF reffing that was a good fight…Comming back from being choked unconcious…WTF? If you have ever been choked out it is a very unpleasant and disorienting experience.

I was expecting some terrible fighting to go along with the terrible reffing, but that was a pretty exciting fight for some bush league s***.

TheKungFuLowKick Says, in 8-3-2012 at 16:26:52 from    

The win has to be overturned right now.What if the guy gets a flurry at the end of the round,gets Koed with between 1 and 0 seconds left ,but he gets back up,do they restart the fight???Stupid stupid ref,and stupid organization.If I was Kristie’s coach I wouldn’t even let the fight keep going.The second someone else then the ref,the cornerman between rounds and the fighters enter the ring,the fight is over.The doctor and 30 guys came in the ring for the uncouscious guy so rigfht there it was over.One time at an amateur boxing comeptition I was boxing,there was a guy who was beating another guy’s ass.He dropped 2 times in the second round and in the third when he dropped like he was dead, the winner’s cornerman came in the ring and celebrated with his fighter before the ref called out the fight and they were disqualified.The guy who got Koed didn’t get a win,it was a No Contest.But that fight is bullshit and I hope the fight gets at least overturned into a no contest.Baxter doesn’t deserve the win.Also he was out from 4:24 to 5:27 and wasn’t ready to fight until 5:54,30 seconds later then the allowed time,so he should ‘ve lost 3 different ways…Retards.

TheKungFuLowKick Says, in 8-3-2012 at 16:30:03 from    

You get to know somebody who runs a crappy organization and you probably have to sign some papers and own at least 5 MMA t-shirts, watch the UFC to be qualified for the job…

okwhatsobad Says, in 8-3-2012 at 16:34:08 from    

he didnt clearly tap. he wasnt out until the bell rang. so? why is this a bad ref? read the rules if your a noob, he didnt tap and he made it to the end of the round. if you dont know about mma then dont comment, people like you and bruno give the sport a bad name. read the rules you clowns…

chiroguy Says, in 8-3-2012 at 17:01:46 from    

hey okwhatsobad…you said that Bruno gives the sport a bad name. Step off homie, don’t you be messing with Bruno…Bruno is the MAN!

flyingfish420 Says, in 8-3-2012 at 17:16:25 from    

If I was the fighter in red I would be more upset with my corner for letting that go on, corners have thrown in the towel when a beating gets to bad so why let him continue from actually getting put out pretty brutally? And to be fair to the ref , he looked like he wanted to stop it but then the so called doctors come in and let him continue. I just don’t think the ref should get total blame.

PitfighterZ Says, in 8-3-2012 at 17:47:15 from    

I think in this case, the ring-side “doctor” should have called it after the kid started twitching. The rules say only that if he makes it to the end of the round and is able to fight by the beginning of the next round, the fight is on. I’ve seen KOed fighters come back from the dead to win fights, but this is the very first time I’ve seen it under MMA rules. At least, this blatantly out.

jockstrap Says, in 8-3-2012 at 18:15:25 from    


Bruno gives the sport a bad name?

Go back under your bridge. If a fighter loses consciousness at any point from the moment he starts walking towards the cage until the final bell rings he is disqualified/loses. They have retarded commissions for a reason. Don’t think we can’t see you for what you are.

marvelous mad madam mim Says, in 8-3-2012 at 18:44:03 from    

ref not that bad. more like stupid fighter doesnt know when to tap

ryeboi Says, in 8-3-2012 at 18:46:54 from    


AznPersuasion Says, in 8-3-2012 at 20:36:34 from    

@okwhatsobad did you just really insult the admin of this website? lol bruno you gonna take that

IKnives Says, in 8-3-2012 at 20:37:37 from    

Look at the smart guy here^^^^ You are soooo right because I did see a provision in ABC’s unified rules that a fighter can take a nap on the cage floor between rounds. The one with a red honking nose is you fool.

sp1n Says, in 8-3-2012 at 21:20:00 from    

i can see it from both sides. he did go asleep but he also made it to the end – just. it was slap not tap .
ref should give him 1 min tho not 1.5 so really he should have lost but with the confusion i can see how he got away with the extra time.
he was really out cold so i suppose on safety reasons in all honesty it should be stopped .
but the kid had guts and made a fast recovery so if he wants to continue fair play – plus he ended up winning so point proved
the mc is a c0ck for announcing loser as winner tho lol

axepittbull Says, in 8-3-2012 at 21:29:32 from    

@ okwhatsobad-
For the sake of bruno, ur an idiot. bruno da man…don’t get him involved. and…for the health of the fighter,he was completely out, so the fight should have been, absolutely stopped. Did you even watch the fight? It happened at the end of the first round dummy!

whitedragon Says, in 8-3-2012 at 23:42:05 from    

Are f****** kidding me!!! The guy in red was out!!!!! The Guy in Black won…How the F*** could they revive him and put him back in the fight!!!!!! f***** Retarded referee needs to go to jail for that!!!!

robsluggo Says, in 8-4-2012 at 00:19:11 from    

legit , Stop crying people .

Beat Brokerz Says, in 8-4-2012 at 00:20:34 from    

Chuck Liddell lost to Jeremy Horn in the same fashion.

Champ Says, in 8-4-2012 at 01:12:36 from    

Lmao. I guarentee some people arent watching this whole thing. Watch after he gets choked out. It isnt just that. He comes back and wins lol

steamer Says, in 8-4-2012 at 03:04:01 from    

Steve Rina? Is that his name? The guy they plucked from a homeless shelter and told that he would get a free haircut and a black shirt and black pants to keep? WTF?? This is a cry for attention. Can we please do something about this?

TheKungFuLowKick Says, in 8-4-2012 at 03:45:12 from    

You are like an obese girl calling Britney Spears fat.You are the one who clearly doesn’t know the rules.You have 1 minute between rounds,if you are not ready after 1 minute,the fight is over.It took 30 more seconds for the guy to be ready so right there he lost.When people storm in the ring,the press,the doctor,the corners and the 30 other people in there,and the ref didn’t call the fight,the fight is also over.seriously,the guy was still laying on the ground when the timeout was over.Go back to your cave after you buy your tapout shirts.

drunkentigah Says, in 8-4-2012 at 04:26:00 from    

They shoulda ended that fight after the first. The guy was twitching for a few seconds man!

julian moran Says, in 8-4-2012 at 06:02:47 from    

The fighters tap looked like body punches to me. I understand the ref not stopping the fight then.
But when the bell rang and the fighter was and remained uncounscious, the fight should have been stopped then by sub in round 1 at the 5 minute mark.

ETK Says, in 8-4-2012 at 06:41:27 from    

How long is the rest between rounds?
How many people can attend to a fighter during his between rounds rest?
If the fight was to continue on, past the 1st round, and into the 2nd, and further rounds, then the fighter should have been left where he laid to get up and go to his corner on his own with not assistance, and given only the regulated amount of time to recover before the beginning of the next round. No assistance. No additional people. No additional time.
And if he could not do it, then he loses.

ironfist Says, in 8-4-2012 at 10:05:26 from    

what was wrong with that the ref didn’t think that was a tap he was out after the bell rung got up and proved he wasn’t out of the fight.
If the ref doesn’t call it and that other guy couldn’t finish him after he was sleeping then s*** happens. Bottomline it’s the refs call and this ref was deff wrong but what the ref says goes thats the rules its just the nature of the beast.

ironfist Says, in 8-4-2012 at 10:57:18 from    

Bruno is da man and has always been the man. watch your mouth when ur on HIS site douche

Cletus Says, in 8-4-2012 at 13:12:07 from    

You guys are all ridiculous and that was a great comeback.. he was out at the bell and he did not tap he was hitting him with body shot. Bruno – the doctors allowed it not the ref by the way.

PitfighterZ Says, in 8-4-2012 at 13:57:56 from    

Bruno: Thank you for posting the video and I apologize for the meathead (okwhatsobad) that think he decides what other people can or not watch on the web. After I have no idea anymore of how many years, I can say your website is clearly a great addition to everyone who loves MMA.
@okwhatsobad: I asked Bruno to post this video, so if you don’t like it, you can simply skip and see the next one. Gratuitously offending people online is a sign of a weak mind.

ThatDude Says, in 8-4-2012 at 14:53:31 from    

I will admite, the guy was out. But he didnt tap. Great comeback in the 2nd round

MMAGiantSilva Says, in 8-4-2012 at 22:21:20 from    

Nice Israeli got the win, but in all seriousness that was some serious bullshit.

lastusername Says, in 8-4-2012 at 22:30:50 from    

why wasn’t the other fighter more vocal when the fight wasn’t stopped and the second round started? I would have been livid!

hazi Says, in 8-4-2012 at 22:56:24 from    

That ref should get fired, the guy could of gotten really hurt if he would of gotten knocked out again after twitching like that.

REEMDAMACHINE Says, in 8-5-2012 at 02:10:23 from    

LMAO, thats all I’m gonna say..

Pikachumanson Says, in 8-5-2012 at 02:15:23 from    

First why was the fight allowed to go on after they wake the the man up? Mad props for him making that comeback though even that was totall bullshit.

axepittbull Says, in 8-5-2012 at 03:30:02 from    

Bottom Line- Bruno for president dang it!!!He’s da man!

Kella Says, in 8-5-2012 at 16:35:46 from    

Am I the only one who sees nothing wrong with this fight? The guy in red was definitely NOT tapping but doing body shots and kept trying to roll out. He got choked out half a second after the bell so he had his 1 minute to wake up and recover and then he came back to tko the other guy! Whats wrong with this?

CS Says, in 8-6-2012 at 08:48:34 from    

nothing wrong with that, the ref just wanted to be sure the guy was out before stopping the fight!

zachres Says, in 8-6-2012 at 08:52:55 from    

I’m not convinced that he tapped or was even completely unconscious… He was way to deliberate in what looked like strikes to me to say that he was unconscious.

It looked to me like the ref and doctor made a respectable decision.

hipster5 Says, in 8-6-2012 at 10:33:46 from    

so was that a 10-8 or 10-7 round since he went to sleep

neto Says, in 8-6-2012 at 11:33:28 from    

This crazy s*** you will only see in America! LOL

dave Says, in 8-6-2012 at 12:59:11 from    

the tap did look like body shots lol.

kung fu k9 Says, in 8-6-2012 at 14:31:25 from    

oh where oh where has Bruno gone, oh where oh where could he be. he lives in France & says WEE WEE, oh where oh where could he be?!!

c Hill Says, in 8-7-2012 at 02:26:12 from    

whats beautiful about this is that it’s a kick ass metaphor for life. YOU SEE OF COURSE THE GUY WHO WAS JOKED OUT SHOULD HAVE LOST IF THE BURDEN IS ON THE REF..

BUT This is life. Dumb people cause dumb results all the time..

Perhaps the fighters corner should have contested going to round 2 more.. or perhaps they just thought “hell this is a fight, I’ll have to choke him out again..”



metallicafan Says, in 8-7-2012 at 05:55:51 from    

those were punches. he survived to the bell. they shoulda kept going after lol

cheesetoochalk Says, in 8-7-2012 at 19:47:39 from    

BOOOOO!!!!!! What a bullshit call and he had a brilliant 1st rd too. Head movement and all. He gassed for that 2nd.

TheKungFuLowKick Says, in 8-7-2012 at 20:29:41 from    

@zachres,and all the others who don,t know the rules

The guy was twitching for the 1st 10 seconds.He was out for the 1st 30.He wasn’t even up at his feet at 1 minute so it’s a disqualification.But there’s no point in arguing with people who don’t know the rules,but are convinced theyare right.

SJ Says, in 8-9-2012 at 06:43:55 from    

Choked to death then allowed to fight on… this my friend is where MMA still is… in it’s infancy,

I love watching but no chance will I ever let anyone I know consider this as a legitimate sports until all this is ironed out… I give it 20 years.

It’s still at the stage where certified refs still don’t know the rules.

P.s. blame the cornermen/friends for this one.
