Frankie Edgar Discusses His Feelings on When a Referee Should Stop a Fight
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 03.30.2014



MMAjunkie Radio recently interviewed former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar last Friday (March 28). Below are some highlights from the interview segment.

Frankie Edgar on when he thinks a referee should stop the fight: "If it's me, let me be limp before you stop it. It's tough to be a ref, especially in that situation when they've got to protect the fighters. But I want every chance I can get. Let me go out on my shield...It's definitely the referee's discretion, but I want every chance to come back. In the Maynard fights, someone else may have stopped it. Obviously the ref didn't, and he made the right choice because I bounced back. That was the right choice."

Edgar's feelings on fight stoppages: "I'm a fighter; I can't help it. I'm a competitor. I want to win, and if I feel a ref stopped it too early, I would be upset. I just want the chance to come back. I'm sure it would never be like that where I'm getting my head beat in and the ref wouldn't stop it, but I just want a chance to come back."
