Oh i know they dont personally hire them, ive seen Mazzagatti ref a K1 fight (i think it was). What i was saying is THIS specific UFC PPV has the worst reffing overall. The Yves with the knee to the head, Silva's (IMO) illigal elbows and the low blow that was told to carry on 0_o.
Im also seeing clinches broke up WAY too soon, and ground game broke up too soon. It seems to be if the favourite fighter likes to stand, a clinch or ground game gets broke up for the fight to stand up. Even Joe stated this on the last UFN, wondering why it wasnt allowed on the floor longer as the fighter WAS working. BJJ isnt about GnP, its inches that make the submission, it make take 2 mins but it works, but after 30 seconds or less its stood up. Its getting annoying.
