Dominick Cruz is not happy with referee Keith Peterson.

Cruz’s fight with Henry Cejudo ended in controversy when Peterson stopped the fight while Cruz was attempting to recover from a vicious knee delivered by Cejudo.

During the UFC 249 postfight show, Cruz claimed Peterson “smelled like alcohol and cigarettes” and that he wished he could have had him replaced before the fight.

That’s a pretty wild claim by Cruz to make after the fight.
