MMA Ref Forced To Get Physical Inside The Cage

MMA Ref Forced To Get Physical Inside The Cage

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!
