Cain Velasquez Vs. Bigfoot Silva Receives Mario Yamasaki As Referee

Mario Yamasaki will work for a second consecutive weekend inside the Octagon, as Nevada Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer nominated him for the main event this Saturday at UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2.

The notion passed, meaning the long-time official will be in charge of the UFC heavyweight title fight between Cain Velasquez and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva.

This past weekend, Yamasaki was part of the referee crew that worked UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Rockhold in Brazil.

As usual, FightLine will be providing complete – and free – coverage of the entire event Saturday evening.
