I’m so hopped up on adrenaline I can’t even fathom pulling my fingers away from what I now notice to be a rapidly-deteriorating keyboard. We’ve been through a lot of good times, buddy, and I’m sorry I almost broke you over my knee when Yoel Romero got to hang out on his stool and recover for an extra thirty seconds while Tim Kennedy and the world looked on, baffled.
How appropriate is it for Tim Kennedy to lose his shit over something Yoel Romero pulled tonight at UFC 178. It was a travesty, a shame, and a blatant disregard for the rules. Now a dude get’s punched in the head, loses cash and momentum in a stacked division because a trained professional forgot to do his job.
NAC 467.728 If a combatant fails or refuses to resume competing when the bell sounds…the referee shall award a decision of TKO

The only positive thing coming from this is the Romero’s Stool Twitter account.
