They said what?! Pros react to awful stoppage of Ankalaev vs. Cutelaba at UFC Norfolk

New, comments

Referee Kevin McDonald waved off a fight between Ion Cutelaba and Magomed Ankalaev pretty early at UFC Norfolk. On Twitter, pro fighters did not agree with him.

Ion Cutelaba was seemingly wobbly, but not out at UFC Norfolk.

After eating some hard shots from Magomed Ankalaev, it seemed like it was only a matter of time until the ‘Hulk’ got knocked out, but he was still up and throwing shots when referee Kevin McDonald stepped in and waved off the fight only 38 seconds into the first round. On Twitter, pro fighters did not agree with the result.
