After Petr Yan I illegally hit Aljamain Sterling, Anthony Smith he exploded in anger. The seasoned UFC fighter got upset with the referee from that bout, Mark smith. He himself automatically stopped the fight and called a doctor to treat the Jamaican. For this, he earned the criticism of many in the world of Mixed Martial Arts. Without a doubt, his words sounded very strong.
Starting with his criticisms, Smith He said: ‘I think this shows that these referees need to take more responsibility. I always feel like I’m shitting with the referees and I really am not. You have never heard me speak of a bad stoppage, a bad referee, I have never done that. But what I have done is criticize them for things they are not willing to do. It is because they do not want to endure the heat. They prefer to put it to the doctor.
«As you have seen, Mark smith he immediately passed the ball to the doctor. Here’s your job as a referee: if we’re going to assign you the power and the ability to know when someone’s hurt in a legal final shot and you’re supposed to be trained enough and know enough in this sport to know when that guy is in pain. , that you are going to stop the fight and you are going to fire her and nobody says anything. That’s my point, “he said.
At the same time, Anthony he dictated: ‘The legality of the shot should not matter. If that knee was legal, he would have stopped that fight right after. If his knee had been lifted, he would have stopped that fight because Aljo would not have continued. Why is it illegal not to have the balls to stop the fight and not put Aljo in a position where he has to make that decision? That’s my problem. These referees are so afraid of receiving criticism. They don’t want to get into the fight.
Well, damn it, when someone breaks the rules, that’s your job. Because if you’re not going to do that, let’s be very honest here, we don’t need you. We control ourselves in the gym, fighting hard, almost fighting every day. We can have someone outside hold the timer and if I kill you 99 percent of the time I’ll stop and say ‘my bad’. Maybe the punctures in the eyes are a little different because you do not always know when someone receives a puncture in the eye », he closed Anthony Smith.
