Stephan Bonnar, who lost recently to Krzysztof Soszynsky at UFC 110, via TKO (due to deep cut on the face) is hopping to have the loss overturned to a draw. Bonnar claims the TKO is no-good because Soszynsky “head-butted” him and he feels the rules weren’t followed. Below is the tantrum thrown by Bonnar after the loss;
It’s only fair to get this overturned to a no contest or draw. In the rules, if after two rounds a fighter suffers a cut from an illegal blow, they go to the scorecard. The judges had it one round a piece, which would have made it a draw. Right after it happened, I pointed to my head and told him, ‘Head butt.’ Why he didn’t look up at the replay, which they showed about 30 times, I have no idea. I have never been wronged so bad in a situation that was so obvious. Yes, I will appeal this decision. I just want what is fair. How do 20,000, people including my opponent and the commentators, see that a clash of heads occurred and the referee not see it? I feel like I’m in a pro wrestling match, where one of the wrestlers hits his opponent over the head with a chair when the referee’s back’s turned. Everyone in the arena sees what happened but the ref, then the ref gets down and gives the three-count and gives the guy the win. It really feels like that.”
All that and you know what ELSE?!
It was a headbutt, and you know what the worst part is?” Bonnar asked. “Take a close-up on this head. This cut is actually shaped like a ‘K’ for Krzysztof, so I now I’ve got to walk around with a scar in the shape of a ‘K’ on it.
So yeah, I’m pissed off. … I would love a rematch.”
Soszynski says he’s all for it…
“I agree with Stephan,” Soszynski said. “If the UFC wants it and the fans want it, I think we should finish what we started.”
