We all know how dangerous MMA can be at times, but that usually pertains to the two combatants in the ring or octagon.
This past Saturday in Thailand, a Muay Thai referee found out the hard way that the sport doesn't always automatically dismiss them from any chance of being struck just because of their occupation.
During a match between Gou Dakui and Super X Sitsontidech, Dakui lost the first round and was starting to tilt the fight in his favour.
Dakui then landed a massive right that shook up Sitsontidech. As the ref noticed Sitsontidech was wobbly against the ropes, Dakui sought for the finishing blow but ended up connecting with a vicious kick right in the face of the poor ref.
