Roy Nelson was upset at referee Big John McCarthy for not stopping his heavyweight bout with Antonio Silva when the Brazilian was knocked down, and kicked the referee moments after the fight was finally stopped Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 95. Despite Roy Nelson's apology after the event, UFC president Dana White is not happy with him.

Days after the UFC event in Brasilia, Brazil, White went on UFC Unfiltered podcast and criticized the longtime heavyweight veteran for his action.

"You can’t apologize for that," White said. "You don’t ever, ever put your f**king hands on a referee, or your feet, for any reason whatso f**king ever. You don’t do it. He needs to be buried. He went over there and he put his foot on his ass to like push him over, you know what I mean? Was flipping him off, yelling whatever. You wanna flip a ref off, there is never, ever a situation where you put your f**king hands on a referee. Ever. You can’t apologize for that."

"I’ve been traveling since the fight so I haven’t seen what’s going on, but if the Brazilian athletic commission doesn’t reign on him, man, it’s not good," White said. "You don’t ever put your hands on a referee. I don’t care what the circumstances are, you don’t do. And listen, we don’t always agree with them, we have our favorites, we have our least favorites, [Steve] Mazzagatti, you know. The guy, no matter how good or whatever you feel about him, they are there for your safety. They are there to keep you safe. F**king, that dope isn’t the… you know what I mean?"

"This guy is the f**king judge of when a fight should or shouldn’t be stopped? You’re a fighter, you go until the referee tells you to stop. John McCarthy is very qualified in what he does, he’s been here a lot longer than f**king Roy Nelson has been. And for Roy Nelson to go over and put his f**king hands on a referee, it can’t happen. It can never happen. But John is sitting there in his knees, tending to Bigfoot, and you come up behind him and f**king kick him? It’s despicable, it’s disgusting, it can never f**king happen, ever again."

Paul Daley got the boot for less, so I expect Roy to be released before weeks end.

I don't think the size of their fan bases are even comparable. Money speaks in Dana's world, releasing Roy would be deserved but unlikely.

There is no reason to feed Bellator more talent.

This. Dana has hated Roy from the jump and been more than vocal. As the months go on and on. Bellator may turn into Strikeforce, which I watched more often than UFC in the infancy of it's lifetime.

u are correct..Dana has always hated Big Country since TUF, since i really believe Dana wanted Kimbo to win, since Kimbo was a big draw at that time, but nope Big Country help put a stop to that..and the look on Dana face every time Roy rubbed his belly after a win, priceless..Dana has alway hated Roy for his looks, his outspoken nature and so on and so forth..i loved it when Roy kicked John (dislike that ref)

I love Big Country and I don't think what he did was that bad but Dana's right here, you can not touch officials. I can't think of any sport where somebody could strike (however weakly) an official and not catch hell for it.

Didn't get released but ended up getting a 9 month suspension! A least it's something for his actions.
