Jessica-Rose Clark defeated Sarah Alpar by TKO (Strikes, round 3, 4:21) at UFC on ESPN+36 this weekend.  soon prior to the official stoppage Clark struck Alpar with a knee to the head as Alpar was precariously close to being grounded.

Referee Chris Tognoni believed a foul occurred as well as called time out.

As Alpar was recuperating Tognoni realized he was in error.  during the online broadcast it was uncertain if he enjoyed immediate replay or consulted with other officials however one method or one more pertained to recognize no foul occurred.  The bout resumed as well as Clark went on to victory.

For reasons that stay uncertain the UFC broadcast team keeps specifying that immediate replay can only be utilized complying with a bout ending sequences as well as suggested that is what occurred.  The broadcast team was wrong on both fronts.

While Camiseta Yokohama F. Marinos Nevada policies do enable a referee to utilize immediate replay after a bout ending sequence right here the bout did not end.  Tognoni clearly specified that he never called off the bout.  There was no bout ending sequence.  Instead, Tognoni utilized the powers under NAC 476.682 subsection 5 which clearly notes that “The referee may, at any type of time during a contest or exhibition, phone call a time-out to seek advice from with officials of the compensation or to view replay footage“.

Kevin Iole immediately acquired comment from the Nevada athletic compensation who verified this is what occurred.  According to Iole the NAC noted as follows:

“It was a legal strike. They paused the fight since they believed it was a knee to a grounded opponent. They went to the replay as well as verified that it was a legal strike. The fight was never officially stopped.  Sarah Alpar was asked if she might continue as well as if she wished to continue, as well as she stated yes. Under NSAC rules, the bout can continue after replay considering that the fight was only temporarily paused as well as never officially stopped.”
