All male fighters will know the pain of suffering a low blow. But Stefan Struve has come up with an inventive way to describe the feeling. The Dutchman’s UFC on ESPN 7 fight was paused on two occasions by referee Dan Miragliotta after Ben Rothwell twice kicked him in the nether region last weekend, getting docked a point for the second offence. The Capital One Arena crowd in Washington had some fun with it, cheering when Struve stood up as he used his five minutes of allotted recovery time, and booing whenever he slumped back to the mat in agony. “S*** was weird as f***, I felt I was gonna give birth to f****** Charizard and they were booing and chanting,” Struve responded to a fan’s question on Twitter. “Then I start to fight again and they chant USA, USA, USA. Like my Dutch balls did something wrong.” Struve was, of course, referencing the fire-breathing monster from the popular Pokemon franchise. “Skyscraper” was controversially TKO’d by Rothwell with three seconds left in round two, opting to continue after Miragliotta told him he was winning both rounds on the scorecards. The referee has been criticised for his words, but Struve came to his defence. UFC: Rozenstruik KOs Overeem with four seconds left “Everybody leave my man Big Dan Miragliotta alone. Referees in MMA have a really hard job. IMO he was only trying to give me info to help me,” he said. “Dan is also a genuinely good guy.” “I was in control and moving very smooth. 1 round away and of course anything can happen in MMA but if I fought the 3rd like 1st and 2nd that would have been a 6 figure bonus in my pocket,” Struve said.
