After a controversial victory last Saturday, the 30th, a Brazilian tormentor defends himself against accusations of being poked in the eye; look!

The controversial victory of Chris Weidman about Bruno Blindado last Saturday, the 30th, continues to make news in the world of fights. In view of this, the North American explained his point of view for the first time, regarding the alleged finger strikes he had given to the Brazilian fighter’s eye, and also pointed out a flaw in his opponent.

I’ll never doubt a guy if he says he was poked in the eye, but you can’t just fall over every time you feel something touching your eyeball. He poked me badly in the eye once and I stood there, took it. Unless the referee is going to say something, I won’t fall. I come from a wrestling background, it’s very similar. You can’t look at the referee, they won’t help you. Sometimes it comes back against you”, he commented.

Afterwards, Weidman continued to defend himself and stated that Bruno had made the wrong choice by falling to the ground after receiving contact with his eye. According to him, the fighter has to be ready for any moment this happens, unless the referee stops the fight before that happens.

You have to always be ready, ready to defend yourself every time. He fell again, I don’t know, was he looking for a way out (of the fight)? I don’t know. But you can’t just turn your back and fall to the ground every time your eye gets hit.”, added Chris.

It is worth remembering that after the contact between the American’s finger and the Brazilian’s eye, Bruno Blindado fell to the ground and suffered a ‘ground and pound’, with Chris ending the fight with a technical knockout afterwards. Therefore, the request for an immediate rematch has already been made by Blindado, who is awaiting a response from the event management.
