Dana White Thinks Mazzagatti is the Worst Referee in the Business

Follow the link for a short video of Dana White talking to radio show hosts Opie and Anthony about Steve Mazzagatti, who he believes is the worst referee in the business.

no chance. Guys like miragliotta are far worse. Mazzagatti is not great but he's far from the worst. Maybe the worst of the popular referees.

Edit: I also don't understand Brock's complaint about the tap. He tapped like 3 times and mazzagatti started to move in, he tapped like 2 more times as mazzagatti was getting in between them. It really wasn't that slow.

mazz definitly isnt the best.

Mario is the best.

LOL i love how blunt Dana is about it.

I agree with you 20, Mario is the best and you can tell him and Dana get on pretty well from watching Video Blogs etc.

ufc doesnt appoint refs the athletic commision does. i'm sure dana has told them he doesnt want him so he clearly doesnt have a choice. fighters however can request certain refs dont officiate their fights. example: lesnar doesnt trust mazigotti so he wont be over seeing his fights.

In case you didn't listen to the whole clip, Dana said that the government (Athletic Commission) picks the referees.

I don't have a source, but I know I've read before that organizations can request certain refs for certain fights and the AC's oblige.
