Dana White Says Mario Yamasaki Should Never Ref Another UFC Bout, Following UFC FN 125 Co-Headliner
By FCF Staff
Following Valentina Shevchenko’s one sided, beat down of Priscila Cachoeira at UFC Fight Night 125, Dana White was quick to blast the bout’s referee, Mario Yamasaki.
Shevchenko punished Cachoeira with strikes from the opening horn, and although the latter made it into round two, the flyweight absorbed numerous shots, before finally tapping out to a rear-naked-choke.
After the bout, White posted the following comments on Instagram:
Priscilla Cachoeira, you showed so much heart and toughness in that fight. I’m honored to have you fight in the UFC. Unfortunately the ref is there to protect you and Mario DID NOT do that. This isn’t his first disgusting performance in the octagon. Another unfortunate thing is that i can’t do anything about I️t only the Brazilian commission can and i am hoping after this scary, incompetent showing he hopefully will never set foot in that Octagon again. Strikes landed was 230-3.
