As you can see below, the kick really only grazed Casey’s head or possibly even just her hair. Casey was most likely just milking the time because she knew that she was behind on the scorecards. Gadelha should not have thrown that kick, but it is clear that Casey’s reaction was very fake.
A possibility for MMA bouts in the future could be to dock points if a fighter fakes something like this. This of course is not the first time that this happened. Josh Koscheck is infamous throughout his career for things like this. It is only a matter of time before there is a clear line on this matter.SHARE:
