Dana White Blasts Mario Yamasaki Following Early Stoppage to Michael Chiesa – Kevin Lee Bout
By FCF Staff
Following the controversial end to UFC Fight Night 112’s headliner between Kevin Lee and Michael Chiesa, Dana White blasted the bout’s ref, Mario Yamasaski.
Yamasaki stopped the fight as Lee was working on a deeply sunk, rear-naked-choke in round one, despite the fact Chiesa didn’t tap or go out. After the controversial call, White posted the comments below, and referred to Yamasaki as “Mario Mazzagatti”.
White has also been extremely critical of referee Steve Mazzagatti over the years.
Mario Mazzagatti does it again!!! This guy is more concerned with doing this dumb ass heart bullshit then Ref'n the fight!!! Steals a great moment from Lee or let Mike fight it or tap. Nobody gives a shit that u can make a heart with ur hands like a 12 year old girl they want u to pay attention to what's going on in the fight and do ur job.
