    Conor Huen's controversial DQ at No Gi Worlds!

    Tue, 2011-11-08 08:27 — News

    Sorry, you need to install flash to see this content.

    On Saturday, lightweight MMA fighter Conor Heun entered the World Jiu-Jitsu No-Gi Championship in Long Beach, California. After applying a toe hold on his opponent, Huen says his Brazilian opponent verbally tapped (in Portuguese), but not recognizing the term, he did not release the submission. The two nearly came to blows, and referee Anjinho awarded the match to the opponent, on disqualification for failing to stop.

    A review of the tape appears to show the match going out of bounds and the referee breaking the match, in Portuguese.

    “I would like to let all the fans know that I’m gonna give it one more shot. Congratulations to Evan Cutts, he kicked my ass pretty good tonight. There were some things that went on in my training camp but I am not here to make any excuses. I could have done more, I was being stubborn and thought I could walk through this fight by half ass’ing it but now I know what it’s like when you’re in there and you feel like you can’t hold your arms up. I disrespected the sport a little bit, but sometimes the best wake up call is getting your ass kicked.

    LAS VEGAS -- If the Ultimate Fighting Championship has gay fighters, their boss believes they should emerge from the closet and not worry about it.

    "I'll tell you right now, if there was a gay fighter in UFC, I wish he would come out," UFC President Dana White said Thursday. "I could care less if there's a gay fighter in the UFC. There probably is and there's probably more than one."

    Dana White often fires back at his critics.
