A referee error from Mario Yamasaki brought an end to a grudge match between Kevin Lee and Michael Chiesa at the 4:37 mark of the opening round at UFC Fight Night 112.

Lee (16-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) had sunk in a rear-naked choke and was on the precipice of choking Chiesa (14-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) unconscious, leading Yamasaki to step in and wave off the bout. The only problem was, Chiesa didn’t go out, and he didn’t tap.

The lightweight bout was the main event of today’s UFC Fight Night 112 event at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Okla. It aired on FS1 following prelims on FS2 and UFC Fight Pass.
