Punishment: Send him in the cage with Palhares. The ref is only allowed to stop he fight 30 seconds after Lopez taps out.

Pathetic waste of a fighter.

Are you fucking kidding me?

If he's ever allowed to fight in MMA again it'll be an atrocity.

He didn't even apologize in the interview when he was in his street clothes. I hope he gets fined, and suspended.

I wonder what the ref is supposed to do in that situation? He was pulling and Lopez was ignoring it. As some point a life could be a danger there, so you'd think the ref would have some ability to act on the fighters behalf and apply a choke on Lopez, strike him, etc. Guess it doesn't come up often enough to really hash it out, but would be interesting to see if there even IS an official answer.

Imagine what Joe Rogan would've said if he were conducting the post fight interview. I do believe he would've spoke up about it.

Joe doesn't play that shit.

I'd be surprised if Joe even DID the post-fight after that shit. Can't get much shittier than that. Twice as bad as Babalu.

Must be a lot of pent-up aggression after losing 5 of his last 6 fights and generally being a C-level fighter.

Probably fined and suspended for a year

I know, right? And Mayhem, who hosted the show, choked out a chick and pissed on her afterwards.

Real classy dudes.

Very surprising from Tony. A complete scumbag move that should definitely warrant a lengthy suspension. I can't believe KOTC just brushed it off like it didn't happen.

Joe Rogan scolding the guys that spilled ice in the octagon is my favorite UFC moment.

it's 2013, CSAC needs to send a message: Tony Lopez will no longer be eligible to apply for a professional license in the state. That would be a great message to send that this crap does not fly. Let the other commissions go from there where they will.

I agree.

They need to do whatever's necessary to keep clowns like this out of the sport.

I don't think anyone would miss him. He can't fight for shit.

This organization is in SoCal too, folks get shot for that kind of shit out there.

Sometimes when the adrenaline sets in you just get that sudden urge to be complete scum. Who was the ref that night? mazzagati would have flown in out of nowhere and tackled him if this went down on his shift.

Not the first time that I have seen some shit like this, and unfortunately it probably won't be the last time either. I believe in karma, and what goes around will come back around to Mr. Lopez.

Anyone like this should be booked to face a roided Reem in Japan with PRIDE rules
