Tim Kennedy, Yoel Romero full post-fight UFC 178 exchange

The UFC released on Wednesday full video of the exchange that took place between Yoel Romero and Tim Kennedy immediately following the controversial ending to their UFC 178 fight.

Kennedy appeared to be on the verge of knocking Romero out in the closing moments of round two of the pair's middleweight contest, however Romero survived to the horn, then was awarded almost a minute-and-a-half to recover between rounds due to a series of bizarre circumstances which UFC President Dana White called "the dirtiest trick in the book." Kennedy subsequently lost the fight via third-round TKO.
