Dana White had some pretty harsh words for referee Steve Mazzagatti at the UFC 99 Q&A:
White also crushed referee Steve Mazzagatti (41:02). He was asked about Big John McCarthy and his absence from officiating UFC fights. White said he has zero control over officials; if he did Mazzagatti would never ref in the UFC again.
Steve was the runner up in our 2008 Worsties awards for worst ref, but he didn’t even come close to getting the number of votes Orange Tan Dan Miragliotta earned. I guess Dana is still upset at Mazzagatti for letting Forrest Griffin take a beating in his fight against Rashad Evans.
