The first fight of the night at the Ultimate Fighter Live finale ended with controversy after referee Kim Winslow stopped the action with no tap out from the fighter under fire.

Former Ultimate Fighter season 14 cast member John ‘Prince’ Albert looked like he was going to get the best of newcomer Erik Perez with a triangle choke early, but the tough Team Greg Jackson fighter battled back with a series of hammer fists from the top to get free.

Perez transitioned beautifully to gain the dominant position and then slipped out for an armbar submission of his own.

With Perez on his belly and Albert’s arm fully extended it appeared the end may be near, and apparently referee Kim Winslow saw or heard something nobody else did and decided to stop the fight.

Obviously, Albert contested the stoppage and replays showed clearly that he never tapped, but at that point it was too late.

Of course, Erik Perez wasn’t at fault and picked up the victory, but UFC President Dana White made sure that Albert didn’t come out short financially because of the referee’s error.

“Just an FYI, John Albert will get his win bonus after the ridiculous stoppage by Winslow,” White wrote on Twitter on Friday night. “Always cleaning up after bad reffing.”

While the loss won’t get erased from Albert’s record at least he’ll go home with a full paycheck following the bad stoppage at the TUF Live finale.
