Dana White Lays Into Referee Dan Miragliotta During UFC On FX 7

UFC president Dana White may still be on the mend following surgery, but he is following along with what has transpired at UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Bisping Saturday night.

Specifically, White was very outspoken towards referee Dan Miragliotta, who made a pair of calls that were much-talked about on Twitter. White took to his account to let his feeling be known, as well.

White’s messages were in reference to Miragliotta’s decision to call a bout between Yuri Alcantara and Pedro Nobre a no-contest after saying Alcantara hit Nobre in the back of the head. Nobre laid on the mat for several minutes, citing the illegal strike.

The second was concerning the late stoppage in the Khabib Nurmagomedov-Thiago Tavares contest. Nurmagomedov unloaded on Tavares with several uncontested strikes before Miragliotta finally waved it off.
