After Mario Yamasaki prematurely brought an end to last night’s bout between Kevin Lee and Michael Chiesa, UFC boss man Dana White didn’t hold back while blasting the veteran ref.
Lee and Chiesa fought in the headliner of UFC Fight Night 112, which took place in Oklahoma City. Lee sunk in a deep, rear-naked-choke as the opening round neared it’s end. Yamasaki proceeded to stop the fight, however, before Chiesa went out or tapped.
White posted the comments below on Instagram, which included a reference to another ref, Steve Mazzagatti, who the UFC President has criticized in the past for early stoppages.
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.
