"There's no way in hell I'd let Kim Winslow referee another fight of mine. I think she's horrible. I was so pissed when she stopped the fight. The first thing I did was look up at her and say, ‘Why did you stop the fight?' And [Winslow] goes, ‘Because your face is a mess.' I'm like, seriously? That's why you stopped the fight? Your face is a mess and they still let you work. That's what I felt like saying to her. I was like, are you serious right now? Did you not realize that we were coming in here to fight each other? You don't base it off how much someone's bleeding, you base it off whether or not they're cognitive and they're still trying. She was like a yippy Chihuahua the whole time that I was on the bottom. ‘Miesha, you gotta do something, you gotta move.' I'm like, ‘Why? She's not doing anything to me, she's in my half-guard. Nobody finishes fights in half-guard.' But the referee, I thought she was going to stop it. She was over-coaching, over-refereeing. It's something that is very frustrating when you have other people who have never fought a day in their life, like Kim. She doesn't do anything. I don't think she deserves to be a referee. And if she is, she should go to the amateur levels where it doesn't matter as much, and there's not as much on the line, because she's literally ruining people's lives."
Judgement call, shmudgement call. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) bantamweight number one contender Miesha Tate tells Sirius XM Fight Club (via MMA Fighting) that she's still bitter over veteran mixed martial arts (MMA) referee Kim Winslow's decision to stop her fight against Cat Zingano, which took place earlier this year at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 Finale. "Cupcake" started off strong, but her opponent, the recently-injured "Alpha," took control in the third and final frame and landed some brutal shots to the kisser (pic), forcing an intervention from the "yippy chihuahua." Tate still gets her rematch against Ronda Rousey following TUF 18, but will never be able to erase the memory of her life-ruining moment. You know the old saying, "safety fourth." Alright fight fans, who among you (besides this person) is prepared to step up and defend the stoppage? Anyone?
