Michael Chiesa and Kevin Lee battled it out in the main event of UFC Fight Night 112 last night, and Lee was doing just about whatever he wanted against the TUF winner – so much so that the final seconds of the bout saw Lee choking Chiesa out. But Chiesa neither tapped nor went to sleep, and yet referee Mario Yamasaki called the fight in Lee’s favor.
Nothing worse than controversy, folks. Fans don’t tune in to watch controversy.
Yamasaki’s gaff of course left UFC boss Dana White feeling a little angry. Here’s his reaction:
Mario Mazzagatti does it again!!! This guy is more concerned with doing this dumb ass heart bullshit then Ref’n the fight!!! Steals a great moment from Lee or let Mike fight it or tap. Nobody gives a shit that u can make a heart with ur hands like a 12 year old girl they want u to pay attention to what’s going on in the fight and do ur job.
