^^^^^^^^^^^

 

Disputing the Swedish referee’s decision during the bronze medal Tae Kwon Do match, Cuban Ángel Matos kicked the ref in the face resulting in a lifetime ban for Matos and his unapologetic coach.

 

Matos was winning, 3-2, in the second round, when he fell to the mat after being hit by his opponent, Kazakhstan’s Arman Chilmanov. He remained there, awaiting medical attention, when he was disqualified for taking too much injury time. Fighters get one minute, and Matos was disqualified when his time ran out.

 

Matos angrily questioned the call, pushed a judge, then pushed and kicked the referee, Chakir Chelbat of Sweden. Matos then spat on the floor and was escorted out.

Tbh ref should have stopped fight soon as he needed treatment.  Imgine that in a real fight give me 60 seconds to fix my foot.  Even if he got up and won or lost i would have still been annoyed at the result.

The other guy is ridiculous though, running about and celebrating when you win by disqualification via stubbed toe. Should be ashamed of himless tbh.

 

Will be interesting to see what happens to the Cuban guy, I assume he could be facing a Chinese prison...
