Max Rohskopf, who recently made his UFC debut, has fallen short in the preliminary card of Saturday's UFC Fight Night event. The former West Holmes High School and North Carolina State University wrestler fought Austin Hubbard on June 21 in a lightweight clash where he asked his corner to stop th fight in the second round which they opposed 9 times.
Max, who is now 5-1 in his Mixed Martial Arts career, also told the ring doctor and referee that he can't compete anymore which eventually ended with the technical knockout loss. The video caught him telling his cornerman Robert Drysdale to stop the fight which Robert refused. Max then told referee Mark Smith that he can't take anymore.
After the fight, several questions arose from the two different groups blaming both parties. Some people criticized cornerman for not listening to the fighter while others pointed out Max for quitting.
