Referee Marc Goddard admits he ‘literally screamed’ as he stopped Max Holloway vs. Justin Gaethje at UFC 300

Referee Marc Goddard shares surreal reaction to Max Holloway KO

In a recent tweet, Goddard admitted that Holloway’s knockout just feet in front of him shook him to the core.

Id love the UFC to release the mic’d audio from me. I literally screamed out at that ending, first time in 20 years. It was an automatic reaction I guess. I’m still speechless. Still have goosebumps. Both of these guys are the epitome of our sport. Sheer class. What a privilege. https://t.co/icjxat70SU

“Id love the UFC to release the mic’d audio from me,” Goddard tweeted Monday. “I literally screamed out at that ending, first time in 20 years. It was an automatic reaction I guess. I’m still speechless. Still have goosebumps. Both of these guys are the epitome of our sport. Sheer class. What a privilege.”

It takes a lot to shock Goddard, a longtime UFC referee and a former MMA fighter. He competed in Cage Warriors and Cage Rage before making the full-time transition to officiating.

Regardless of Goddard’s vast experience, Holloway’s knockout was a one-of-a-kind UFC moment. He earned the latest knockout in UFC history (R5, 4:59) at UFC 300.

Holloway’s victory will likely be discussed for years to come, and Goddard was a part of UFC history in officiating the fight. Goddard’s reaction shows that even the most tenured professionals in MMA can be surprised by what transpires.
