UFC 235 is finally in the books now. While it was a rather great event with some really fun and exciting fights to watch, it was still somehow slightly marred by controversial and somewhat questionable calls from the referees. Herb Dean in particular was at the forefront of such decisions. This kickstarted a social media campaign were fighters spoke up about being at the wrong side of bad refereeing calls. UFC featherweight Cub Swanson made a valid point on Twitter that referees too should be drug tested and checked for alcohol as well because so much faith is put in the alertness of the referees. Former UFC lightweight champion and current welterweight Rafael Dos Anjos then went on to reveal that a referee who oversaw one of his UFC fights was drunk.
RDA took to Twitter and then replied in regard to Swanson’s comments. He revealed that one of the referees who oversaw his fights was so drunk that it even smelled. Below is the tweet by RDA:
