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.

I'm so conflicted. Held onto the choke too long. Opponent is black. Hammer fist after fight was called off. Opponent is black. Yosemite Sam. . . Rat tail. . .

Punishment should be a five year suspension and his opponent should get to shave off that nasty rat tail.

Also I feel comfortable using the word "cunt" in my last response due to the lack of inhuman decency displayed by this prick... don't know what weight class he is but I hope the MMA Gods give him a fired up Hector Lombard next. If he dies... he dies.

Maybe that dude bit him or hit him in the groin before. I wanna hear the whole story before I call people names. Having said that it is pretty ugly. No one could get a comment from Tony? I've seen him interviewed before and he seemed like a nice guy.

Doesn't matter if he gave him the finger in the cage or kicked him in the groin a couple of times, There is NO REASON at all to keep choking someone after someone taps and when the ref tries to pull you off. The punch in the face was even more disgusting, after you're choked like that you can't even defend yourself. NO < this was an absolutely terrible thing to do. Unprofessional to say the very least and down right criminal. The fight was over , therefore this was assault. MMA is trying to become a legit sport and creeps like this do not help. Suspend him, ban him, charge him, but do not let him get away with this at all or even think for a second there could be a reason for doing such a thing. If there was a beef , Tony won, that's all he had to prove, the rest is just crap.

Doesn't matter! Any action he takes after the fight is stopped is akin to assault. Afaik he can even be charged for this.

There was so called "beef" between tony and the black guy. The black guy was starting "chicken"(cause he's black, therefore it twas not beef) with tony lopez's wife backstage, next the black guy was stalling, and finally the black guy hit Tony real hard and made him angry. The last reason was my favorite, getting hit hard in an mma fight; that's just unheard of and mean!
