If you guys have time, I'd like you to watch this clip and give an opinion.
Female fight, one of our 140 pound girls against a bigger girl with a very good wrestling pedigree. This is early in round one.
Is the headbutt as bad as I think it looks or am I biased? (both a very good possibility). The headbutt looked clean to me and hit her flush. Coleman would have been proud.
The problem is after the headbutt was hit, the ref took a point from the other girl and then between rounds wanted to give our girl up to 5 minutes to recover. The problem is that by that point, both of her eyes were already swollen shut from the headbutt. The girl wanted to continue then ended up fighting blind and getting taken down at will and laid on for the rest of the fight. My thoughts are that since we were told that "This is your one warning" about headbutts in the fighters meeting that this would be a NC or a DQ.
FYI- The promoter has been awesome about dealing with this. I'm looking more for opinions than anything else. You might want to watch this on mute since one of the commentators will make you want to scratch your eyes out.
