UFC 267 saw what many are calling one of the worst referee performances in history, between Benoit Saint-Denis and Elizeu Zaleski dos Santos. Now Benoit's coach, Daniel Woirin speaks on what happened, and gives an update on his fighter. Saint-Denis vs dos Santos was refereed by Vyacheslav Kiselev, but he was pulled from the rest of his officiating duties that night after this fight, due to how he handled the contest. During the second round, Benoit got rocked with multiple hard shots, getting batter by his opponent to the point that Daniel Cormier and Paul Felder were screaming at the ref to stop the fight, only for it to go all three rounds. Speaking to MMAFighting after the fight, Benoit's coach says that he understood why the commentators were so upset. Woirin explained that he did not understand why Kiselev did not stop the fight, but this gave his fighter the opportunity to show how tough he was. \u201cI understood (the commentators) reaction but they don\u2019t know Benoit (Saint-Denis) like I do,\u201d Woirin stated. \u201cEven they said that they don\u2019t know him like I do.\u201d "I was surprised that he didn\u2019t stop the fight but it permitted to see how tough Benoit is,\u201d Woirin said. \u201cI do agree with him being pulled out of the rest of the card because they are there to protect the fighters, which he didn\u2019t do in that fight... I didn\u2019t understand what he was doing . We tried telling the referee to bring a doctor because Benoit couldn\u2019t see.\u201d https:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/CVm078dsf87\/ Update On Benoit Saint-Denis That said, there was a good amount of fan concern about the safety and health of Beoit Sanit-Denis, given the amount of damage he took int he fight. However it seems that he is doing fine, according to a post to his Instagram, where he says that he will be making a move to lightweight in his return. "See you at 155 pounds @ufc Thank my @lalou_croft , my family, my team @danielwoirin @firstname.lastname@example.org and sponsors Shit happens fighting is not a game" he wrote. https:\/\/www.instagram.com\/p\/CVvBKezsfRq\/?utm_sourceig_embed&ig_rid80355e64-5caa-499f-8f47-0d39aeaf2853 This sentiment was backed up by his coach, who confirmed that Saint-Denis was doing much better and had been cleared by doctors. He reiterated that his pupil was extremely tough, and that was displayed in this fight, no matter the outcome. \u201cHe\u2019s doing great,\u201d Woirin said. \u201cHe left the hospital and he\u2019s coming back to France on Tuesday." It is good to hear that Benoit Saint-Denis is doing well and does not appear to have any serious effects from the damage taken in that fight. That said, there was no reason for him to take the damage in the first place.
