The Controversial KO Loss: Bobby Green vs Jalin Turner – The Worst Stoppage in UFC History

Daniel Cormier, along with many others, expressed dissatisfaction with the stoppage during the Jalin Turner vs. Bobby Green fight.

In the co-main event at UFC on ESPN 52 on Saturday, Green was viciously knocked out by Turner. Following the initial damaging shots from Turner, it was the subsequent ground-and-pound allowed to continue by referee Kerry Hatley that caused outrage.

After being badly hurt by Turner’s right hand and dropped to the canvas by a two-punch combination, Green faced more than a dozen unanswered shots from Turner. Cormier criticized the stoppage as the worst in UFC history.

“When someone falls face down, there’s no need for a standing 8-count in boxing, and there is no need for follow-up shots in MMA,” Cormier expressed on his YouTube channel, emphasizing the gravity of the poor judgement.

Cormier, who was commentating the event with Michael Bisping and Brendan Fitzgerald, stressed that other attendees at the Moody Arena in Austin, Texas, shared similar concerns.

“The concern on everyone’s face on octagon side was crazy,” Cormier remarked. “I saw a girl next to the octagon turn away. She turned away. Not a little girl – she’s a teenager, 19 or 20 – she turns away because she can’t watch what’s going on in the octagon. … He made a bad mistake. It was terrible. There was no reason for a guy to take that amount of damage after the fight was over.”
