Although Jason High apologized for pushing a referee at UFC Fight Night 42, Dana White has announced that the incident will cost the lightweight his roster spot.

High pushed Kevin Mulhall moments after the official decided to stop the June 7th bout, and award Rafael dos Anjos the stoppage win. High tweeted he would never act in such a way “again”, but the UFC President recently told UFC.com:

“What I did find out is that I guess that Jason High kid got up and pushed a referee – he’s cut,” White said. “I’m going to cut him. I look at that the way (Paul) Daley put his hands on his opponent after a fight was over. You don’t ever, ever f****** touch a referee, ever. You’re done here. He’s been apologizing on Twitter, but he’s done.”

High was coming off back-to-back wins over Anthony Lapsley and James Head heading into the bout.
