Two big news outlets in Brazil, UOL and Globo, have tried to get in contact with Yamasaki to get further explanations about his call to disqualify Erick Silva during UFC 142 in Rio de Janeiro, Yamasaki has turned down both interviews claiming he has been prohibited to talk about the occurrence:

The Athletic Commission has prohibited me of giving interviews to the media until this case has been resolved” said Yamasaki.

While being prohibited, he did maintain his position on the DQ when being questioned by UOL:

If you watch the fight in different angles, you’ll see that there were at least five punches in the area (around the back of the neck)” concluded Mario.

Mario claiming the Athletic Commission is making him silent on this issue is puzzling considering there are no Athletic Commissions overseeing MMA in Brazil and therefore he’d not be bound by any, unless he’s talking about Marc Ratner, who isn't an "Athletic Commission" just like "corporations" aren't "humans"... Silva’s camp have not formally appealed the decision either so there is no “case to be resolved” yet. I think perhaps he may be just tired of the questions and is making up an excuse so he doesn’t have to deal with them anymore. Those who don’t owe don’t fear, Mario…
