Dana White Doesn’t Want Mario Yamasaki to Ref Any More UFC Fights - Sports Gossip

If it were up to UFC President Dana White referee Mario Yamasaki would never work another UFC event.  His latest issue with Yamasaki occurred during UFC Belem on Saturday night in Brazil.

White ripped Yamasaki on Instagram for a very late stoppage during the co-main event between Valentina Shevchenko and Priscila Cachoeira. 

Via Dana White:

Priscilla Cachoeira, you showed so much heart and toughness in that fight. I’m honored to have you fight in the UFC. Unfortunately the ref is there to protect you and Mario DID NOT do that. This isn’t his first disgusting performance in the octagon. Another unfortunate thing is that i can’t do anything about I️t only the Brazilian commission can and i am hoping after this scary, incompetent showing he hopefully will never set foot in that Octagon again. Strikes landed was 230-3.

White knows the fight game and is usually spot on when he rips refs or judges.  This one is no different.  It's one of the worst late stoppages you'll ever see in the UFC.
