Referee KO’s cornerman in Tennessee

This is one of those videos that would fit perfectly on any sports bloopers or America’s Nuttiest Videos programs. The story goes like this…a referee is officiating an MMA fight in Knoxville, TN where one of the fighters loses by TKO and the ref stops it. A cornerman who must have been unhappy with the loss comes into the cage to confront the referee about the stoppage. In apparent self-defense the ref KO’s the cornerman! I know we’re a little crazy here in the South (ask Junie Browning) but damn.

The best part is not only do we have the video of the KO but we have a statement from the referee on what happened where he also talks about another incident that just happened two months later between himself and that same cornerman again.
