The finish of the fight was highly controversial. Popular MMA referee ‘Big’ John McCarthy has now given his two cents on the finish of the fight.

 

UFC: 'Big' John McCarthy gives his opinion on the controversial finish of the fight between Ricky Simon and Merab Dvalishvili - John McCarthy
‘Big’ John McCarthy was livid about the finish of the fight.

The veteran referee was seemingly a bit incensed by the controversial finish and gave his opinion of the bout’s ending. He tweeted the following:

Right outcome with Simon winning, wrong call as far as TKO

How do you have a TKO on a Submission win??? Come on @arielhelwani you know that can’t be right.

Frank trust me he went out twice. First time when he slammed his head into the mat on the takedown at 56 sec left and then on the neck crank at the bell

At the 56 sec mark the fighter is knocked silly if not out by his own takedown. That is why Simon moves to mount and the neck crank so easily. At the end the fighter is out for a second therefore he has been submitted and loses as such. It should never be ruled as a TKO

Saved by the bell was a shitty sitcom and a term that is associated with old boxing. It does not apply to this and MMA with submissions. Man was out at the bell and several times before. Why is it you want someone to win a fight they were submitted in?
