The combat sports world is bottomless beast that chews up and spits out even the best of them. After three straight losses, Chris Weidman has been seasoned, cooked, chewed, spit out then digested inside the belly of the beast. No matter how dumb the New York State Athletic Commission was at UFC 210, the controversial ending of Weidman’s bout with Gegard Diaz may have just delayed the inevitable.
Was Weidman’s hands down or up on the mat? When did Mousasi’s knee crush the face of the former UFC middleweight champion? These are tough split seconds that needed the aid of instant replay but in lieu of NY officials looking at video evidence we’ll have to watch this clip of Weidman’s corner flipping the hell out in the moments directly after the UFC 210 clusterfuck.
Let’s watch coaches Matt Serra, Ray Longo among others calmly and concisely react to the five alarm fire that was burning down their Octagon.
