Blog Video: Referee Stops In-Cage Fight with a Rear-Naked Choke and Here’s the Footage!

If there was a video promo to advertise referees and their need to train in MMA, this would be it.

MMA referee Leon Roberts recently put a stop to a Fight U.K. MMA bout between middleweights Nathias Frederick and Ahmad Aswad. When Frederick knocked out Aswad, he didn’t stop pummeling the unconscious fighter, despite Roberts’ attempts to pull him off.

When all else failed, Roberts secured hooks and sank a modified rear-naked choke, neutralizing Frederick and stopping the carnage (skip to the 6:30 mark to watch).

Bad officiating? Not this time. Shout out to Fight U.K. MMA for the footage.
