UFC Referee Takes a Hit While Trying To Stop Fight

UFC Referee Keith Peterson is known to most of the MMA fandom as the guy Dominic Cruz can’t stand because he allegedly “smelled of booze and cigarettes”. But Peterson is also devoted to doing the best possible job in the cage.

This landed him in a precarious situation during UFC Vegas 48 match up between Chas Skelly and Mark Striegl.

Following a devastating knock out of Striegl, Peterson intercepted a lethal ground and pound sequence with his face.

Peterson recovered shortly after.
