So Tony Lopez just officially became the worst person in MMA

So Tony Lopez just officially became the worst person in MMA

If you're from California then some of you may know of Tony Lopez from an innumerable amount of King of the Cage fights he's had over his eight-year long MMA career. The guy has held the championship strap in three separate weight classes in KOTC along with a few smaller organizations that we can't even begin to name. However this article wasn't designed to praise Tony Lopez or glorify any of his accomplishments in MMA. Not at all. Just a few minutes ago, Tony Lopez just became the worst person in MMA.

Tonight at KOTC: Split Decision, Tony Lopez did the most reprehensible thing one could ever do in mixed martial arts. After securing a rear naked choke on his opponent, Lopez held on to the submission as the referee was trying to separate him. It's not as if he didn't feel the ref pushing his body off his opponent. Tony Lopez intentionally held on to the choke and after he felt like he was done punishing his opponent, Tony Lopez hit him in the face. Check out the .gif of the incident below.

And here's another view of the submission, compliments of @GrabakaHitman.

Here was the live play-by-play from @Fight_Ghost of the entire ending to tonight's KOTC fight.
