“He legit quit” – Shamil Gaziev’s corner confession sparks abrupt end to UFC Vegas 87 main event, fans react

Must read

The UFC Vegas 87 main event ended in a weird stoppage after Shamil Gaziev’s argument with his corner made referee Mark Goddard suspicious. It turned out that the Dagestani fighter could not see out of his eye, which prompted the referee to wave off the fight.

Gaziev took a major jump in terms of competition in his second UFC fight, taking on the No.12-ranked heavyweight contender Jairzinho Rozenstruik in the UFC Vegas 87 main event on March 2.

By the end of Round 4, Gaziev was wearing a significant amount of damage on his face despite a strong start to the fight and he appeared to be arguing with his corner between Rounds 4 and 5.

Goddard, who could not understand the conversation due to the language barrier, called the cageside doctor to take a look at Gaziev’s eye. After a close inspection by the doctor, Goddard waved off the fight and declared Rozenstruik the winner by TKO.

MMA Fans were unimpressed with Gaziev’s performance and shared their thoughts on the fight.
