Bad referee - stops fight 10 secs late after choke

Kim Couture vs Sheila Bird



Len Koivisto must be one of the worst referees to have ever called a fight.

And even more worse: No Action Taken Against Kim Couture-Sheila Bird Referee Len Koivisto

The commentators sounded like commentators from professional wrestling matches in the 70's

I hate how they didn't even realise she was out, that's such bullshit she could of died!!

This is the worst job of officiating in a MMA match I have seen in my life. She could've walked out there with brain damage. He seriously needs to never officiate a match ever again.

I saw this months ago, honestly, some people should NOT be allowed to ref.

I don't know how these guys get their jobs as a ref, but whoever puts them in that position is a ******* idiot.

This happened about 6 months ago to be fair. She's fought again since and dropped a decision. now 3-6 overall, not looking good for Kim is it?

Kim Couture really ought to walk away from fighting.

Terrible officiating.

It is possible they made a name for themselves officiating in other disciplines. This guy might've made a name for himself in boxing or kickboxing. He obviously didn't get enough training.

He is a boxing ref and judge - might even be a good one. Getting in boxing judges who dont understand the sport is half the problem here - that guy was totally incompetent though you dont need to know the sport to see Kim Couture was out.

Honestly I think it's probably better to give an early stoppage then to call it late. Not calling a fight in time can result in major injury. This guy needs to stick to boxing.
