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

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.

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.

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.
