Ok, so I am not one to complain about why I lost, and have always accepted the blame for the losses in my career. However, I should not have lost to Drew Fickett.
Long story short, I took an illegal kick to the temple while on the ground. I knew something was up when I didn't remember the moments between letting go of the kneebar to being in the guillotine. I remember every moment of the fight but that. I remember being in the guillotine and thinking "fuck how did this happen". People were telling me that I got kicked in the head but obviously I didn't remember.
You can see in the video that the heel lands solid to my temple and the crowd reacts to it. I stand up and am dazed as you can tell by my arms just kind of hanging there.
The ref should have halted the fight regardless of the kick being unintentional or not. Also, the ref actually acknowledged that he saw it. He told my corner who was complaining about the kick that "it was an accident". Either way it was an illegal strike and time should have been given.
