Dan Miragliotta Fires Back

There's some excellent audio up courtesy of Mr Sunshine that you can get here.

Referee Dan Miragliotta, who refereed four of the five bouts on Saturday night's controversial EliteXC Primetime card, speaks on a number of issues.

More specifically, he addresses:

- Claims that the Kimbo Slice - James Thompson fight was 'fixed'.

- Why he stopped the fight when he did.

- Claims that Kimbo tapped during the fight.

- Why he didn't stop the fight when Thompson was on top raining down elbows.

- Why he stood the fight up when Thompson had Kimbo in side-control.

- His own thoughts on Kimbo's potential in MMA.

- What fellow referee Kevin Mulhall thought of the stoppage.

- Why the Lawler - Smith fight was stopped.

- What he thought of the card overall.

- Baroni's entrance.

Very interesting insights from Miragliotta. He makes a good case against those who claim that the Slice - Thompson fight was fixed, or that he was in some way pressured into favoring Kimbo.
