“Big” John McCarthy: “Jag hade inte stoppat Cejudo vs. Dillashaw”

🎩 VIDEO+TEXT ✅ Veteran-domaren John McCarthy hĂ„ller inte med om det tidiga stoppet mellan Cejudo och Dillashaw ✅ "Det Ă€r en match mellan tvĂ„ mĂ€stare"

Årets första UFC-gala var full av kontroverser. Förutom Greg Hardys pinsamma regelbrott var Ă€ven det tidiga avslutet i superfighten mellan Henry Cejudo och TJ Dillashaw pĂ„ tapeten.

Domaren Kevin MacDonald bröt efter bara 32 sekunder efter att Cejudo skakat Dillashaw flera gĂ„nger. Dillashaw, som har blivit skakad tidigare i sina matcher och kommit tillbaka, försökte fĂ„ tag pĂ„ Cejudos ben, nĂ„got “The Messenger” inte tillĂ€t.

Efter domarstoppet var Dillashaw upprörd och kallade spektaklet för “bullshit”. Inför Bellator 214: Fedor vs. Bader passade MMAFighting Marc Raimondi pĂ„ att frĂ„ga veterandomaren John McCarthy hur han hade agerat. McCarthy vill inte sĂ€ga om det var ett bra eller dĂ„ligt stopp, men berĂ€ttar att han sjĂ€lv inte skulle stoppat matchen, med tanke pĂ„ bĂ„da fighters kaliber och erfarenhet.

“I am not here to say what is a good and what is a bad stoppage. Kevin [MacDonald] made a decision OK. It’s his decision and he’s the one that has to live with his decision – along with Henry [Cejudo] and TJ [Dillashaw] and the UFC” sade McCarthy.

“There is things that I want a referee to think about – if you would ask me ‘Would I stop it at that point?’, no I wouldn’t stop it at that point. And this is the reason why: This is not a fight between two guys who were brought together and ‘Oh, we’re gonna match this fight up’.”

“This a fight where both have earned the right to be in this position, they have both created a background that has put them in a position of champions and they are going after each other.”

“One, to try to save his entire weight class basically, the other to prove ‘these guys are not as good as me’.” fortsatte McCarthy.
