The Twitter MMA world is still buzzing about what many say is an early stoppage in the main event at UFC Fight Night 112. The main event featured Kevin Lee and Michael Chiesa and saw a lot of early action.
The controversy started after Kevin Lee found himself on Michael Chiesa’s back. He sunk in a choke and after a few seconds Michael Chiesa’s arms looked to go limp. Mario Yamasaki stepped in and stopped that match, only the second he did, Michael Chiesa jumped to his feet and began protesting … but it was too late.
Here’s the video of the stoppage. See for yourself. What do you think? Too early?
