LOL

Man, a year ago I would have thought about taking crazy pills for saying this, but recently this guy has really stepped up and is doing a good job.

I didn't see Mazz or Herb last night so maybe they have been given some "time off".

Of course Dan comes back and pokes Heath in the eye. Man, that guy cracks me up.

Big props to Yves Lavigne, I really feel as though he has stepped up his game recently.

I was wondering if they would have had Mazagatti reff-ing the Lesnar fight again. They didn't even have him at the event. But yes, Yves has been very good. Had me worried for a sec during the GSP/Fitch fight, though. Calling for the doc at the end of the fourth worried me for some reason that it was going to be stopped.

that was a good call if u ask me. it wasnt like he was freaking demanding that the match be stopped. he was just playing it safe and making sure fitch could continue in a one-sided fight were he was taking a lot of damage. props to yves for the night.

Oh I know. Just usually when the doc gets called upon, especially between rounds, something major is wrong, which leads to stoppage. Had no problem with him calling for the doctor.

yeah a stoppage wouldve been a blower. it was good to see both men tested for five rounds. got to c GSP fight to finish and fitch show lotsa heart staying alive

Yeah for sure. He wasn't jumping the gun or anything. Fitch was in pretty rough shape. I mean, how many times do you see a guy almost get knocked out 3 or more times in a fight? Not too often.

Yves also gave lots of time before he stopped the Kongo fight. Man, I hate seeing a guy go out by TKO with seconds left of the fight, but he gave him ample time to defend, which was better than most refs.

Good call Rush, Yves Lavigne has done a good job as of late. It's a very tough job and he does it well. We are always giving the refs crap so it's good to see them get some praise once in a while. Props.
