This doesn’t happen every day, and we’re not even sure the last time it did happen, but referee Mike Beltran at RFA 15 disqualified Daniel Aguiar due to timidity.

Aguiar throughout the fight flopped to the mat, trying to force Sam Toomer to follow him down and fight on the floor. Toomer would have none of it, but Aguiar would have none of standing up and fighting.

So Beltran followed procedure and disqualified the ground specialist.

Beltran recently joined Inside MMA to break down his process in getting to the point of having to disqualify Aguiar.
