Randy Couture's ex-wife, Kim Couture, fought again this past Friday and the finish was a gruesome thing to watch. She fought Sheila Bird on AX Combat 1, and "Sugar Free" got choked unconscious by leg scissors in less than 2 minutes.

Kim has now lost two in a row, and has dropped her overall professional record to 3-5. What's most notable on this bout though, was the incompetency of the referee. Kim was clearly out moments after the leg scissors was locked in, but the referee still let the fight go on. By the time it was stopped, Couture had been stuck unconscious on the choke for at least 10 seconds, and it took about a minute before Couture regained her consciousness.

Things have to change, as it is incompetent officiating like this that severely risks a fighter's health, and could lead to permanent damage or even death.
