VIDEO: Big John McCarthy Disciplines Alex Oliveira After Late Hit to Tim Means at UFC Fortaleza


The first time Alex ‘Cowboy’ Oliveira met Tim Means inside the octagon at UFC 207, Means landed an illegal strike to a downed Oliveira which led to the bout being ruled a No Contest at 3:33 of the first round. At last night’s UFC Fight Night 106, ‘Cowboy’ got his revenge by defeating Means via rear-naked choke in the second round, but Oliveira also landed an illegal blow of his own, though he had to deal with veteran referee ‘Big’ John McCarthy seconds later.

McCarthy has said in the past that a round has not ended until the referee has made an official call (not when the horn sounds) and ‘Big’ John was clearly not happy with Oliveira — as he had already gotten in between the two fighters physically.
