We’ve all been critical of MMA referees before. However, Leon Roberts gave himself a couple future “get out of jail” free cards from what he did last month.
While acting as the third man inside the cage at Fight UK: Last Man Standing, Roberts was forced to get physical with Nathias Frederick after the lightweight continued to punish Ahmad Aswad during their amateur match.
Feel free to fast-forward to around the 6:35 mark of the video below to see Roberts jump on top of the fighter and pull him off, nearly locking up a rear-naked choke after Frederick would not stop beating away on Aswad.
Kudos to Roberts for getting in there. Now, if we could only see Kim Winslow do that!
