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.
