Dana White on the referee stoppage

“The difference is we’ve had some refs say some dumb in the past like, ‘Oh, I allowed her to be a warrior tonight,’ and goofy like that,” White said, as quoted by mmafighting.com.

“He knows that he made a mistake tonight and he does not feel good about it. So it’s unfortunate. Definitely a bad stoppage. Very bad”.

Jalin Turner is pleased with the win; However, he does have much to say about the referee stoppage.

“I don’t know, bro. I don’t know what to call it, He just waited until Bobby was out. Like, Bobby’s tough. Bobby’s a really tough fighter, so when I was punching, he was defending, he was moving, he was still a bit coherent and I was like, dang.

I was like, maybe this should be stopped, maybe not, and I’m not going to stop until you pull me off because it’s him or me, and he would’ve gotten his bearings about him, he could’ve gotten back on top or something crazy.

So it is what it is. He was healthy, he was coherent, he was good after, we had good words, so I’m happy he was in good health, decent health. So it is what it is”.
