Featherweight Ahmad Al Darmaki threw away a much-needed win on Friday.

Al Darmaki blew a fuse following a first-round submission of Bogdan Kirilenko at UAE Warriors 12 in Abu Dhabi, hanging on to a choke for longer than referee Marc Goddard’s liking and forcing the veteran official to step in and break the hold.

An incensed Darmaki immediately became physical with Goddard and in the above clip he can be seen shoving Goddard twice and grabbing the referee’s shirt. Goddard subsequently overturned Darmaki’s submission win to a disqualification loss.

Darmaki falls to 2-6 as a pro.
