UFC on Versus 6 felt it’s first bit of controversy when the welterweight bout between Shane Roller and T.J. Grant was stopped after an armbar and an apparent submission.
Grant locked up an armbar and as Roller rolled to try and get out of the maneuver, the referee says he heard a verbal scream and stepped in to stop the fight.
Roller says that he definitely didn’t tap and while he admits he grunted, he did not want out of the fight in any way, shape or form.
Despite the controversy, Roller still feels like Saturday night’s fight was a loss because it wasn’t going the way he had hoped, and he plans on coming back stronger the next time.
