"Just before the main event, some wacko at Bell Centre decided to jump the barrier go after the 6-5, 270-pound (?) Miragliotta. In a split second, the jackass was on the ground and Miragliotta had his back. He cinched in a rear naked choke!!!!!"

We first saw Miragliotta at UFC 78 and I was at the prudential center and when he was first announced the guy next to me said..."How come that fighters is wearing pants and a t-shirt? That guy's a ref? He should be in the cage!!"

that guy is a monster, the fan had to be hammered out of his mind to attack him.

Miragliotta is all right in my books, even he was laughing when Quarry was doing his last minute antics against Starnes

I have been actually quite impressed by his ability to stop fight sat just the right moments. Every fight ive seen him ref, he's done a great job with the stoppages. I think he could make a great subsitute for Big John Mcarthy.

Miragliotta kind of looks like the KOTC dude, you know the one with his arms crossed (Icon of KOTC) who used to walk the fighters to the ring back in the day. WAR Miragliotta!!

Yea, I just saw the Hironaka/Goulet fight. He's very good with stoppages.

INstead of taking the guys back he should have mounted and givin him somthing to remember him by.......like a broken nose/jaw/orbital bone. Any one of the three or a combo would have been nice.

great thing about that is he would have gotten away with it via self defense, somebody would have had to pull the dan the ref off the drunk (oxymoron)
