A little more elaboration as to why we (brisbane crowd) boo'd referee Steve Perceval at UFC fight night 33

On episode 211 you asked why Steve Perceval was boo'd everytime he was introduced by Bruce buffer

yes it was because of the stoppage on Richie vas but to elaborate a little more , it was really obvious this ref was going to stop the fight early I remember saying to my girlfriend Australian referees always panic and stop the fight quickly and really that was stopped pretty much as soon as they were in mount position and Richie was sweeping anyway, but also Richie vas is a big personality here in Australia , if you see his tattoo on his stomach saying bra boys , bra boys are a group of surfers here in Australia , there is a movie made on them which is massive down here (I recommend you watch) and he (Richie)also has a weekly tv show down here called the Krew on our local programming , not to mention he was one of the smashes team aus cast

so to make my point a lot of the crowd were emotionally invested in this fight and we felt robbed by Perceval,

would also like to point out that i personally was not booing vaculiks opponent , he did what he needed to do and did it well. The crowd just had a point to make
