Following the Jon Fitch vs. Josh Burkman bout, Kenny Florian rants about Steve Mazzagatti's ability to referee a fight. Florian even suggests about his team protesting when Mazzagatti was assigned to ref his past fights.

If they want to bitch about bad reffing I think there are better examples.

I think Dana and Kenny should mind their business on this one.

That said, that was really really shoddy reffing. He was nowhere near that action...not even hovering over it. He had his back against the wall, his feet together, and seemingly did not even consider Fitch going to sleep as a possibility. Also, he's not as sexy as Kim Winslow

Kim Winslow is the worst IMO, not because she's a woman but because she's a horrible ref!!!

Kenny is a company guy. Kinda what you can expect when its clearly not the best piece of reffing . Hey Dana wants mazz gone. If sefo gets on board the rebney maybe it happens.

I still remember Steve getting a lot of flak back in the day, and then the next event he saves a fighter from devastating punishment by basically tackling the other guy...Wish I remembered the fight.

He's done this in several fights. People only want to remember the negative stuff, though.

Especially Dana, for whatever reason.

For anyone who hasn't already watched this on Inside MMA, here's Big John's opinion on the whole thing:

You'll have to copy and paste the link into your browser because the code on this website is very weird.

Mazzagatti has screwed up, but his heart is in the right place. It would take guts to dive in front of the likes of Thiago Silva when they have their blood up after a finish
