After the UFC Fight Night 95 event in Brasilia, Brazil on Saturday night, UFC Heavyweight contender Roy “Big Country” Nelson spoke in a backstage interview among other things, about his decision to kick referee “Big” John McCarthy in the butt after his second-round TKO of Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.
Nelson, who said it was hard enough fighting a friend in Bigfoot Silva, spoke about being frustrated with “Big” John over the late stoppage in the fight.
“The referee just did a late stoppage,” said Nelson. “If I gotta do his job too, to stop the fight, because I had a big conversation with John [McCarthy] in the back about doing his job” said Neson, through a number of stutters, before closing by saying, “Bigfoot doesn’t need to take anymore blows to the face.”
