Now I’m the last person to take a fighter’s words as gospel, especially when they’re relating the details of an event that occurred immediately after taking 20 stiff shots to the face. But there’s still something that rubs me wrong about Nick Lembo from the NJAC calling fighters liars:
This match was stopped in the second round due to a huge cut under Young’s left eye. Young claimed that the doctors cleared her to continue to fight, but ‘the guy in the white shirt’ (Lembo) with the commission overruled them. Young claimed because it was a woman’s fight on CBS, that they were quicker on the draw to stop it than if a man had been in a similar spot.
“I really wish everyone was miked and everything that was said was picked up,” said Lembo. “Kaitlin came out and flat out lied.”
