The woman named Maria, visibly shocked by the incident, confronted Heibati, but the referee quickly intervened to separate them and issued a warning to Heibati about his conduct.

Despite this, the fight proceeded as scheduled, but it didn’t last long. Osipyan won by technical knockout in the first round.

However, the referee ended the fight with just over 30 seconds left in the round, declaring Osipyan the winner because Heibati was unable to defend himself.

Officials quickly intervened, pulling Heibati away while others entered the cage to restore order, awaiting the official result. The chaos continued after the fight, with both fighters grabbing the microphone for post-fight comments.

Heibati appeared agitated by something said to him and launched a high kick toward a commentator, then exchanged harsh words with him.

Explaining the matter while apologizing to Maria Heibati penned, “Hello, everyone. This message is for Maria. I wasn’t respectful towards her, and I’m sorry for my behavior.”

He further added, “Before the MMA fight, there were a lot of heated fistfights, which put me on edge. I was in the cage, ready to fight, and my emotions got the better of me.

“I was tense, and it’s common for emotions to run high before a fight, but that’s no excuse for how I treated María. I want to publicly apologize to her. I’m a married man, so I value and respect women.

“She was just doing her job, and after the fight, I didn’t even acknowledge my wrongs because I was still dazed from being hit. Please tell María that I’m sorry.”

Despite his apology, Heibati has been given a lifetime ban from the HFC. However, let us remind you, that Heibati isn’t the first MMA fighter to face severe consequences for bad behavior in the cage.

Last month, Brazilian fighter Igor Severino was removed from the UFC for biting his opponent, Andre Lima, during his debut fight.
