If this happened Chael could very well be seriously injured. Poor guy done goofed. The consequences will never be the same for the "American Gangster".

<blockquote>Braziliant - <blockquote>k1levelstriking - Was hoping a seasoned vet like Kim Winslow would get the call, damn it.</blockquote><br /><br />From now on at the very most she should get facebook prelims because of how bad she fucked up in officiating her last fight.<br /></blockquote><br /><br />Unfortunately, the key word in what you just said was "should."But then again, just because guys are not on the main card doesn't mean they should be in additional danger due to late stoppages.
