Bobby Wombacher: 3rd Man in the Cage
Tuesday July 12, 2016— A life long fan of the sport, Bobby Wombacher’s entrance into reffing was brought on by an injury during training at Jeremy Horns Gym in Utah. Not wanting to be sidelined and driven to continue his involvement in MMA, he attended Herb Deans classes. The rest, as they say, is history. Wombacher has now reffed in many promotions. You may recognize him from his assignments with RFA, The Clash, Bellator, King Of the Cage and Steel Fist Fight Night to name a few. He’s over seen fights in over 19 states and July 13, 2016 will step into the UFC cage for the first time.
“I want Ammys to come back and fight again, if they take unbelievable amount of damage they aren’t going to come back.”
“I’ve got split seconds to make decisions. I stand by all my stoppages.” (He continues) “I tell fighters before hand when a stoppage happens please discuss it with me in the back.”
“Time left means nothing to me. If he/she is taking too much damage I’m going to stop it. Because what happens is, they recover on the stool, go back in and take even more damage. Our sport has a pretty great safety record in the cage. It’s all about fighter safety. 3 seconds, 1 second doesn’t matter. I’ve had fighters, their corners, their wives thank me for not allowing a fight to continue, thank me for not allowing them to take more damage.”
“What people do not take into consideration is the physicality of being a ref. When a fighter goes lights out, when they come back on they are still in the moment they shut off. So they automatically re-enter the fight where they left off. “
