The post-fight skirmish between Fabricio Werdum and Edmond Tarverdyan was an ugly sight, but that's where the story ends.

The Ohio Athletic Commission will not discipline anyone involved in the strange post-fight incident at UFC 203 in Cleveland, executive director Bernie Profato told MMA Fighting on Saturday night. Profato said he spoke with all involved and they apologized to the commission.

"Everyone left on a positive note," Profato said. "They said they respected the commission and assured this would never happen again."

I don't feel anyone should be punished, really. Ed ran his mouth and Werdum threw a little kick in there lol. If you run your mouth, you should be humbled. Nobody scrapped, aside from a mild push kick no punches were thrown and both corners for the majority were trying to act in the best interest for their parties. Maybe a tiny fine at most but don't think a harsh suspension should be called for.

I think anyone who punches Edmund should get a pass.

If anything he was just doing what everyone else secretly or even openly wants to do to Edmund.

I never liked Werdum until he push kicked that dick head last night LOL. He has a new fan or 2..

This guy is nothing but trouble!! Just a punk! Remember on TUF 18 he was eyeballing Hallman and Hallman called his bluff til Ronda saved his ass, running his suck hole to Caraway as he was walking away (talking out of his ass).

And he sucks as an MMA coach, idk how he is w/ his boxing students but this guy has no business in MMA whatsoever. Ronda's mom hit it on the head, he hit the lotto w/ Ronda. Fuck, anyone of us could have coached her during the early stage of her career, nobody had an answer for her armbar and judo. But the records of his other UFC fighters he's trained are piss poor! Travis Browne was an up and coming title contender til he joined forces w/ this idiot. Jake Ellenberger struggled immensely under him, 3/4 horse women all had losing records. The writing is on the wall, if you want a good coach, avoid GFC.

This is what the world thinks of Tarverdyan:

not only is Werdum not getting punished for what happened, but he's also getting applause from what I'd guess is at least 95% of the mma community.

Yeah, I haven't heard a single person complain about this other than people who are associated with Edmond. The only complaints I've heard was some people were disappointed that Werdum didn't front kick him in the face instead and knock him clean out.
