Edgar To Refs: ‘Let Me Be Limp Before You Stop It’

March 31, 2014 4:49 am by BJPENN.COM News

“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… 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.”

In a recent interview with, MMAJunkie Radio, former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, talked about ref stoppages in MMA and how he wants to be treated while in a fight.

Every fighter will likely ask for this same type of consideration, but is it the smart way to do it?
