Last week, the UFC on ESPN 22 lost a match due to an incident that occurred on the scales.
On Friday, Jeremy Stephens removed Dracar Klose during the match, with the result that Klose had to leave the match. Klose said he immediately felt his hand numb and his throat tighten after the push and the next day he suffered from nausea and migraine. His team revealed that the fighter was was diagnosed
with “concussion” and “cervical sprain” as a result.
According to Dana White, boss Sean Shelby is to blame for not blocking the scales between Stephens and Klose.
“Sean Shelby lost that. “Sean Shelby, you know, Sean and I see things differently,” White said TSN. “I saw it on social media and called him immediately. I was with my daughter [event] . I was in Orlando at the ESPN Cheerleader Competition. I saw it happen on social media and I called Sean and I said, “Dude, where was your head in this?” “
Although weight incidents are not uncommon and sometimes serve to build additional advertising campaigns, White believes Shelby should know better by considering participants.
“He came warm and it’s Jeremy Stephens. “He is wild,” said Lefkos. “I mean, yes, we’re not there to look good and take pictures. We are there to make sure that does not happen. “
The UFC is expected to book a new Stephens v. Klose as soon as possible.
“He is a young, healthy guy. It will get better “, said Lefkos. “But it is unfortunate and should never have happened.”
