While UFC Fight Night: Oklahoma City was a good event from opening bell to closing bell, it was the controversial ending to the main event that everybody will remember.
For those who have yet to check it out, referee Mario Yamasaki called an end to the fight between Kevin Lee and Michael Chiesa when lee had Chiesa in the rear naked choke. The problem, according to Chies anyway, was that he was never out or did he tap while in the choke.
In the three second video clip (posted below), the loser of the fight in Chiesa tells Yamasaki the “you should be f*cking fired.”

The ending of the main event even drew the ire of UFC President Dana White, who tore apart Yamasaki after the event.
Chiesa plans on appealing the loss, but nothing has been filed at this time.
