Make It Stop: Cecil Peoples FAILS as MMA Referee

Cecil Peoples, the MMA judge who bought us quality judging in the first Shogun vs Machida fight proves its was not his fault, he is obviously blind. Check him out missing this tapout at Gladiator Challenge.

    what a shocker. he shouldn't be allowed anywhere near an mma event of any kind. he's got to be the worst judge ever and now he's also the worst ref ever. kil yourself!

    Peoples does suck no doubt,but the fighter should have kept going until the ref stopped it, unfortunately the one who tapped might have gotten hurt but you gotta keep going until it gets stopped.

    I woulda kept it goin til something broke. then cecil would have been blamed. It was clear that the other guy had no qualms with continuing the fight, so why should I feel bad for hurting him?

    Thats why you never stop fighting until the ref stops you. Thats the shit that happens

    My three comments-

    1. The guy could have kept that sub on without having to crank it.

    2. The guy tapped should be banned from professional, amatuer, and even backyard brawling for being the most unsportman prick that you can be. if you got caught and tapped, be a man about it and take the loss.

    3. Any org, even at the most amatuer levels, that hires Peoples…should not be holding an MMA event. The guy is a blind bum.

    small tap…i can't even blame poeples for that. as much as i want to.

    to me peoples is motivation. talk about not wanting it to go to the judges. that guy is why you won't want it to go to the judges. you never know what he sees.

    good point mma maniac there should be no small tap. but for cecil peoples i think you should make it a point to act out as much as possible for him to see you tapping. not two taps. unless cecil peoples has his glasses on i'm going to yell tap while hitting the floor repeatedly.

    Peoples' history in WEC is worse then infamous. So many times he fkd up.
    Getting in the way of the fighters.
    Calling a time out in a fight when one fighters was hit and the other fighter almost ending the fight, in order to check if the guy that was hurt could continue – after a few seconds had passed he could and he won the fight a minute later.
    Continiously calling fighters to work when nothing they do is work, GnP'ing, trying for submissions, the lot, and treatening to stand them up when guys are in armbars they're about to tap to.

    The guy is completely blind and moronic. He knows sht about MMA. Abso-fnk-lutely nothing.
