If the headline above is causing some confusion, well, it should be…
Yes, at Invicta FC 21 last night, Celine Haga choked out Amy Montenegro, but proceeded to lose the fight. How?
Well, Haga secured a rear-naked-choke late in round three, and Montenegro wen out. But, the referee didn’t notice until the final horn went. So, the fight was sent to the scorecards and Montenegro was awarded the decision win.
MMA Fighting reached out to the legendary ref, John McCarthy, and he told the outlet Haga should have been awarded the fight, since Montenegro was out cold at the end of the bout. So, the result could be overturned.
