The frightening moment MMA referee failed to stop bout despite fighter laying unconscious
MMA refereeFrank Collazo has been blasted after failing to recognise a fighter losing consciousness during a Fury FC 76 bout.
Edgar Chairez and Gianni Vazquez were in the fourth round of a competitive flyweight main event bout on Friday evening at Boeing Center at Tech Port in San Antonio, when things took a bizarre and frightening turn.
Vazquez completed a takedown on Chairez but soon found himself locked in a triangle chokehold.Chairez then adjusted to secure the position even further and within seconds of him hooking the leg, Vazquez looked to have already passed out.
With the Mexican fighter hardly moving, the commentary team of UFC welterweight Alex Morono, Michael Alexander, and Raheel Ramzanali all started calling for the ref to end the match.
However, Collazo just watched on standing over the action, while those in around the cage were screaming to the ref to stop the fight.
