Rousimar Toquinho’s coach Murilo Bustamante explained his fighter’s posture against Nate Marquardt at this Wednesday’s UFN 22 event. Toquinho diverted his attention during the bout to complain to the referee when he was caught off guard by a string of strikes and knocked out.
“What happened was that Rousimar thought Marquardt had Vaseline on his legs. He felt that was the case and complained to the ref. He was naïve in doing so,” said Murilo direct from Texas to GRACIEMAG.com.
“Marquardt carried on fighting – correctly –, as anyone would. The athletic commission examined him and detected nothing awry. Now we’ll forge ahead,” he said in lament.
