Quotes of the Day: Dana White on Steve Mazzagatti

From Dave Meltzer's Latest Yahoo! Piece.


Dana starts by saying he has contacted NSAC executive director Keith Kizer about Mazzagatti no longer working UFC shows:

“[Kizer] knows my opinion,” said White. “He has no answer. He doesn’t want to hear from me.”

White then goes into greater detail over the control fighters have over who refs their fights:

“I’m going to tell the fighters they can turn down referees and it’s in their hands if they want a ref who may end up getting them hurt in a match,” said White, who noted that both Anthony Johnson and Randy Couture have turned down Mazzagatti to officiate recent matches when assigned.

It's good to see that fighters are taking a stand against poor reffing also and it is clear that Dana is looking to take the only action he can to get Mazzagatti off the UFC cards.
