Coach to Chris Weidman, Ray Longo, has provided his opinion on the controversial stoppage at last weekend’s UFC 210 co-main event. The coach is not happy with the fight’s end result.
Last weekend, former middleweight champion Chris Weidman was looking to climb himself out of a two fight losing streak. The former champion went toe-to-toe with Gegard Mousasi in the UFC 210 co-main event. However, Weidman faced a controversial TKO loss to his opponent.
After Mousasi’s strikes to the head of Weidman were determined legal blows, Weidman was faced with a TKO loss. In response to the event, Weidman’s coach appeared on the Anik and Florian podcast to give his opinion.
Coach Ray Longo believes that the referee should have stuck to his decision to identify the knees to the head as illegal strikes. For his full explanation, see the clip below.
