Watch this British ref rear naked choke a fighter that wouldn't stop punching his opponent

Watch this British ref rear naked choke a fighter that wouldn't stop punching his opponent

You guys probably know Leon Roberts. People say he's the best thing to come out of UK MMA since Lee Murray. That's basically another way of eloquently slapping every British MMA fighter in the face while complimenting one of the greatest referees the MMA world has ever seen. See, I just did it again -- I'm really good at it. The fact still remains, if you continue to punch your opponent in the head, Leon Roberts isn't afraid to display his jitz in front of the world. Actually when I received this submission to MiddleEasy from my UK source, these are the exact words that accompanied the email:

Leon Roberts is the nicest guy I've ever met.
I travel with him when we're on UFC duty and he's arguably the most gentle giant you will ever speak to.
However, he knows how to get it done.
He never has to say it, it's just a given.

Of course that's a very British way of saying Leon Roberts is an absolute bad ass. Check out the clip of Nathias Frederick vs. Ahmad Aswad at FIGHT UK MMA - Last Man Standing.
