Many outlets have erroneously reported that a crazed fan attacked 6-4, 296 pound UFC referee Dan Miragliotta who promptly put the fan in a rear naked choke before other authorities arrived to make the arrest.

Miragliotta recounted his side of the story about his run-in with the fan in an email to Mr. Sunshine:

The only thing, is that he wasn’t going after me he was charging either GSP or the ring. I just happened to be in between him and his targets. I was asked by the UFC to help with security when the 2 fighters entered the ring area. They where more worried about Matt then GSP.

They need to sign Dan Miragliotta to the Heavyweight Division.

I dunno what it is about this dude, but he is so ******* cool. Not quite Big John yet, but jumping the ranks very quickly.

With a diminishing HW division, could we have a new #1 contender?

I like him too. so far he's been doing good. Alexander/T. Silva stoppage for example was right on point.
