Last Night Trevor “Hot Sauce” Smith put his 5 fight win streak on the line at StrikeForce against Gian Villante in the 205lbs division. Trevor Smith was hit early and went to the canvas. As per his fighting style, Smith takes a lot of damage in his fights, but always seems to recover well. Smith had taken a few unanswered blows to the head as he attempted to get a leg and reverse the position. All of a sudden, upon attempting to reverse the position, referee Kim Winslow jumped in and stopped the fight. Smith was in mid transition of positions and actually working to improve his position when the fight was stopped. Later in the night, after having stopped this fight early, referee Kim Winslow then stopped the bout between King Mo and Lorenz Larkin late. Larkin took several punches unanswered after already going limp. The winner King Mo, was very outspoken afterwards about the horrible late stoppage. In this interview, Smith contributes the late stoppage as an attempt for Referee Winslow to make up for the early stoppage in his fight. Unfortunately, two wrongs do not make a right and both bouts ended in controversy. Here what fighter Trevor Smith says in regards to the bout below. His camp will file for a no contest and the fighter believes that referee Kim Winslow “Has no business in the sport.” For someone to work as hard as Smith has and to lose the momentum of a 5 fight win streak in this fashion is rather poor and unfortunate.

Great interview! Kim Winslow's Pre-fight meetings are condescending to the fighters, and they expose how little she knows about the sport!!!

While I agree that she is not up to the job, there is some contradiction going on here and this interview really highlights that.

On the one hand Smith Says she let the King Mo fight go on too long because she stopped his fight too early.

On the other hand he says he wants to fight on until he gets knocked out. Perhaps Larkin felt the same. He was not out as far as I remember but he certainly was not 'intelligently defending himself'.

Tru - that's funny,most people say i sound like i just got kicked in the nuts or a girl.


In half of your interviews you have just been kicked in the nuts by a girl.

Transcribed the important section of the conversation for those who can't understand Trevor:

Tru: Last night you had a controversial finish to your fight. Tell us what happened last night.

Trevor: Yeah, I just got done watching the replay right now. It was just one of those things where a referee jumped in there and stopped the fight when she had no business getting involved in the fight. I was diving for a leg and ankle lock. He caught one of my kicks. And as I go for that ankle lock he struck me in the back of the head, a few landed on the side but, you know. The whole time I was defending myself intelligently while I was going for the leg and ankle lock and reversal when she stopped it.



Tru: I don't know if you had a chance to see King Mo's fight or not, to see when she stood them up when King Mo was working and it was kind of a late stoppage. I don't know if you've fought and had Kim referee for you before, but what is your opinion on Kim Winslow as a referee in MMA?

Trevor: She has no business in the sport. In regards to the King Mo fight, I watched that and Larkin took that damage because of because of my fight. She stopped it early. She felt silly because of the stoppage in my fight and that's the reason she let the Larkin/Lawal fight go as long as it did. She felt silly for stopping my fight. So, you know some of that damage that Larkin took was just because she made a bad decision in my fight and tried to make up for it in that one by letting it go a little too long.



Tru: What was going through your head when she stopped the fight? Because you were working, you were fighting back and you seemed like you had all of your wits about you. Were you ever out of it? Were you hurt badly? What was going through your mind?

Trevor: No, actually when she first stood it up I didn't know what was going on. I was like, "Why is she stopping the fight?" And then I thought, "Ok, shes stopping the fight because of blows to the back of the head." and then she told me that the fight was waved off and then I was, you know, kind of in disbelief. It's like what do you do at that point? I think I could have said fuck you. I could have flipped out, but that's not going to do anything for me though. I guess my next step is to bring it in front of the commission and see what they can do and play it from there.



Tru: So you weren't unconscious or out of it, you still had your wits about you then?

Trevor: Yeah, absolutely. I was diving for the leg and my style, how I fight that's how I like to do it. I prefer to be on my back. I like it when guys are throwing punches and I like to dive in and get those legs and kind of bury my head underneath it.



Tru: You're coming off of a 5 fight win streak. So going into last night you had won 5 straight. How disappointing is it to get a defeat that way?

Trevor: Yeah, it's real disappointing. Like I said, we train very hard for this and if something is gonna be stopped, let it go, let me be unconscious, let me take some blows, let me take some damage. We train everyday to absorb that damage and if I'm going to lose a fight, I want to look like I've been in a fight. Cause I'm walking out of this fight with out a scratch on me. It's very disappointing. If I lose a fight, I want to get my ass kicked. I was to look like I've been in a fight. I want to feel like I got my ass kicked not cheated.



Tru: I know it happened less than 24 hours ago, but you have a real good management team behind you with Wade Hampons and some other gentlemen. Can you tell us, are they going to take any steps to file for a no contest or get this fight overturned?

Trevor: Yeah, they're gonna file for a no contest or notify the commission. I'm not sure what steps they need to take to go through that, but we're definitely gonna push for that angle. You can look at the replay. I don't know what she was watching. They tried to explain that my head was on the canvas so it was absorbing all the damage. From two angles; one that it being an early stoppage, and then two, from the blows to the back of the head it was pretty clear cut that it should have been a no contest fight. It should have continued. Blows to the back of the head, they're gonna happen, I'm fine with that. But that early stoppage is the most aggravating thing for me and that she did it due to blows to the back of the head, which is kind of a fault to her.
