A quick-thinking referee stepped in to spare a UFC fighter‘s blushes – when her sports bra started riding up.
UFC official Jason Herzog spotted that Norma Dumont was on the brink of a nasty wardrobe malfunction live on TV in her fight with Ashlee Evans-Smith.
Dumont had Evans-Smith on her back against the cage during the final round of their bantamweight fight at UFC Vegas 15 on Sunday (AEDT).
Herzog called a brief pause to the action and reached in to reposition the fighter’s top to save her from flashing her breasts to fans watching live.
Dumont put the gaffe behind her to beat Evans-Smith by unanimous decision in her first fight since February.
She won 30-26 on all three scorecards to improve her record to 5-1 having been favourite before the bout.
And Dumont would’ve been grateful for the ref sparing her a wardrobe malfunction just as much as the victory.
Good ref… No hesitation in fixing the over the shoulder boulder holder 👌 pic.twitter.com/Ng4Zmg61iJ
Brazilian born Dumont made her MMA debut in 2016 and last night’s win was her sixth pro bout.
It was the second time she’d fought on a UFC card having lost to Australia’s Megan Anderson earlier this year.
Sunday’s bout was part of the UFC Vegas 15 card that took place at the promotion’s Apex base.
Anthony Smith made light work of Devin Clark in the night’s main event with a first-round stoppage.
