As if we needed any more reasons to dislike Bryan Caraway, the UFC bantamweight contender was spotted fish-hooking opponent Erik Perez last night at UFC Fight Night 42: Henderson vs. Khabilov. Caraway went on to win by rear-naked choke submission in the second round. If you ain’t cheating you ain’t trying, I guess.
Fish-hooking — the act of sticking your fingers in a dude’s mouth and yanking — is one of the fouls listed in the Unified Rules of MMA. Unfortunately, the ref didn’t see it, which was just one of many officiating screw-ups that plagued last night’s card, from questionable stoppages to premature stand-ups to indefensible hometown decisions.
