Johnny Bedford started strong in his UFC San Antonio fight with Cody Gibson on Saturday night, landing several body shots that backed Gibson into the fence. Gibson, rebounded, landing a big right hand that sent Beford reeling. As soon as Bedford hit the mat, his feet and arms came up as Gibson dove into his guard. At the same time this was happening, referee Kerry Hatley dove in to stop the fight.
Bedford immediately protested, but it was to no avail as the referee had already stopped the fight.
It was an unfortunate loss for Beford, but one that he fully blames on a bad decision by the referee.
