UFC Vegas 10 featured many exciting fights and thrilling finishes. However, one controversial fight got the fans’ attention. Ed Herman won his fight against Mike Rodriguez via third-round submission. And the UFC president, Dana White was not happy about it at all.

Ed Herman was on the verge of getting finished when he was saved by a horrible call by the referee. The fight was stopped temporarily after the referee called a knee to the body a groin shot. Ed Herman did not show any sportsmanship whatsoever as he continued to enact that it was indeed an illegal blow.

After the event, Dana White blasted the referee and even called him worse than the infamous Steve Mazzagatti. Dana White gave his verdict on the controversy and stated:

“The worst I have ever seen. He’s the fucking Mazzagatti level. It’s Mazagatti level shit right there. That was one of the worst things I have ever seen. That kid wins by knockout, technical knockout, and loses the fight. One of the worst things that I have ever seen.”

Dana White criticizes the bad officiating

Though Dana White has a ton of respect for UFC veteran, Ed Herman he is unhappy with the way things played out. Dana White showed support to Mike Rodriguez and claimed that he will be getting his win money as well despite losing the fight. Dana White further continued:

“That’s the most disgusting thing that I’ve ever seen. I don’t even know what to call Ed Herman. One of the toughest human beings ever. And when you talk about the acting when the referee is that stupid that he did not see that it was not a low blow. Ed Herman’s job was to get in there and win the fight. And he did what he had to do.”

This is not the first time a referee had made a horrible decision and this won’t be the last time either. UFC along with the commission needs to come up with ways to minimize these mistakes during fights. Dana White suggested changes in the live replay system following this controversy.

However, things are not going to change until the commissions are willing to act upon it.
