The bout between Elizeu Zaleski and Saint-Denis was nothing less than a brutal war. While the fighters did their job in the octagon, it seems the referee forgot to do so. Referee Vyacheslav Kiselev immediately got slammed on social media for doing a terrible job.

Viewers were enraged because a fault on the referee’s part can cause a lot of damage to the fighter. Former UFC champion Daniel Cormier was also angry.

While the fight was on, the commentators could be heard yelling for the bout to stop because of how brutal it was getting, and Saint-Denis was badly hurt. When Saint-Denis told the referee that he could not see after an eye poke, spectators were surprised to see that the referee did not call a doctor to examine the fighter.

Daniel Cormier slams the trolls while commentating at UFC 267

Daniel Cormier was one of the commentators who was yelling for the fight to stop. When a troll on Twitter made fun of him and fellow commentator Paul Felder for requesting a stoppage, the former UFC champion slammed the troll.

He wrote, “I wish it was your momma and daddy were in there and hope@you enjoy the scrap.”

Cormier’s anger at how the fight went is understandable. Giving warnings for illegal moves, calling the doctor to check on the fighter, and even stopping the fight are duties that the referee failed to do.

Saint-Denis is an incredibly tough fighter. However, he may not have fond memories of his UFC debut.
