An unbelievably incompetent and extremely dangerous stoppage occurred at EFC Africa 28 in Johannesburg, South Africa earlier today.

Yikes.

Competent refereeing is extremely crucial on so many different levels for a sport like MMA.

Thought Bellator this past weekend was worse, but this one was still bad.

Pretty bad when the fighter notices the fights over before the ref

You've gotta be kidding me.... allowing those blows to the back of the head was pure negligence on the refs part. Revoke his license and levy a nice fine.

I'd say one or the other. It'd get the point across (and it's a point worth making). But both? I think that'd be a double penalty in the same direction - taking money from the guy, but also taking away his vehicle to provide for himself.

Crazy how bad some refs can be. I mean, if they can't recognize the guy is out in either of those fights they clearly are off in left field and picked the wrong career.

I thought whoever reffed the Pat Curran vs Joe warren fight was bad, but this was just ridiculous. win via strikes to the back of the head.
