Rani Yahya and Johnny Bedford were on their way to an exciting fight until Yahya was knocked out due to an accidental clash of heads. Bedford celebrated and believed he won, then could not believe it when the fight was declared a no-contest.
Bedford tried to make his case as to why he was the winner but the officials would have none of it. He stated that he suffered from the head-butt as well, and the fact that he survived it meant he should have been deemed the winner.
After the fight, Bedford asked for a rematch right then and there. Yahya claimed he would fight him again, but not there in the octagon because he ‘fights with rules’. Check out the .GIF of the altercation below! ZombieProphet of FanSided created the .GIF, so give him some love on Twitter!
