Dominick Cruz exposed UFC referee Keith Peterson for smelling like alcohol and cigarettes in a viral video. Dominick Cruz is not happy about the early stoppage against Cejudo, and blamed it on referee Keith Peterson being drunk and smelling cigarettes at UFC 249.
It’s hard to say Dominick Cruz is lying because as you can see in the photo above, he definitely got a good whiff of Keith Peterson smell when they were pressed up against the UFC cage. We all know how strong those horrible alcohol and cigarette odors can be.
Dominick Cruz says he wishes there was way to keep UFC referees more responsible. However, he isn’t placing all the blame on the ref stating it’s his fault he put himself in a position to let someone else take the fight from him.
Due to Dominick Cruz calling out referee Keith Peterson for smelling like alcohol and cigarettes, we may see more stringent rules put in place for UFC referees going forward.
