Bigups to the god Dana White.

''You probably thought this was a bright idea, who hit the light switch? Hype shift, this is where it looks like the fight's fixed, tight fist, beat you with the hand that I write with, punchlines that remind Rodney King of the night sticks...''

Referees are damned if they do and damned if they don't. I wouldn't want their job. Think of all the drama on this forum where we bicker back and forth about a decision, a stoppage, a penalty, or a missed penalty. We rewatch fights and watch replays and can't get a consensus on a lot of things. Referees have to make split second decisions and they aren't going to get them right all the time. Seriously if people want to bitch about Mazzagati they should first shoot every meteorologist that has ever provided a forecast. Mazzagatti has bad calls and good calls just like every referee of every sport.

Yeah no ill-will here toward refs. They're just doing their job and have to make decisions on the fly. If I were Steve I might'be been moving for the stoppage at the same time, it was just really unfortunate timing as Ben was just starting to stand up. With that said, I have been outraged on many occasions by poor reffing, not so much at the ref but at the situation. But this just really isn't one of those times, partially because Ben hadn't shown anything resembling an offense in that fight let alone a defense.

Considering Dana was watching the fight at the time this was recorded I think he might have just been really hot at the moment, but I think we all know Dana isn't a Steve fan in the first place.

Yes, if by "about to tap" you mean "about to trow an armbar". Rewatch the fight and you'll see that Mir got screwed by that stand up not saved by it. Atleast it ended well for him still.

He is only employed because he gives the head of the Athletic Comission free mustache rides.

How anyone can say Steve Mazzagatti is the worst referee when Dan Mirgliotta still lives is beyond me!

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
