Why Yves Lavigne was booed

You might have noticed Yves Lavigne getting more boos than Hitler on Saturday night. The reason? A botched call during the Kyle Bradley / Phillip Nover fight. While not as bad as the mega-pooching of Aaron Riley / Shane Nelson at UFC 96, it’s hard not to call this one premature.

Sure, if the fight had kept going Kyle Bradley would have just kept pounding on Nover. But fans don’t like psychic refs who see too far into the future. Here’s another angle on the stoppage. Nover eats a shot to the temple that has him kissing the canvas for a half second. What do you guys think?
