Controversy in Ref'ing - it happens...

Controversy in MMA fights is not new, and it’s certainly not restricted to female MMA referees, as so many people would have us think of late.


For example, back in July, 2011, Sheila Bird defeated Kim Couture via scissor choke Round 1, 1:48.


The problem? The referee who was overseeing the fight, Len Koivisto from Edmonton, was unable to recognize the submission, and left the choke on for a full 10 seconds after Kim Couture had already passed out! This resulted in a long period of unconsciousness and spasms, all while fans and even the Calgary Commission Official yelling to the ref that she was out.


So do mistakes happen? Of course, and that’s not to say this makes them okay, but it does show that they are not made dependent on whether or not the ref is a man or a woman.
