Now this is not meant to be a thread where people are talking mad smack about refs, it is a hard job to be a ref of course, everyone makes mistakes.
But seriously man I am tired of this shit with refs calling fights all crazy and showing favoritism. Herb Dean?? I am tired of the VERY fast standups in fights you ref. Swick vs Okami?? That is just Fn crazy man, how can you call that fair?? And many other fights.
Best ref to me is STEVE MAZZAGATTI. Steve just rules! He is kicking it with the sweet tache and also the best ref. Steve knows when it is time to call it off and he lets people decide the FIGHT in the RING. Honestly IMO Steve is responsible for making the VERY fast Zuffa stoppages slower, he knows the fighters and will let it go. None of this stopping it after a knockdown chuck vs randleman shit, LMAO at a TERRIBLE stoppage there.
Also Yves Lavigne, have you guys noticed this guy lets fighters clinch against the Fing cage FOREVER?? And why is he reffing all the fights with Canadian fighters, possible bias IMO, seriously what is up with that. He let Cote clinch Smith forever IIRC and MacDonald basically set up a tent and stove next to that cage vs Rory in the first round. BTW good fight Rory and kind of a gay stoppage IMO. BTW I dont hate gays so dont even start!
Worst ref ever Larry Landless, man that guy never shut up and was ALWAYS in the face of fighters YELLING YELLING YELLING, please just stop, notice he isnt in the UFC anymore at least they did that right. Larry Landless I dont hate you as a person but you wanted camera time, IMO you conducted yourself wrong, a good ref should only be seen before/after the fight and when making a rule judgement, see Steve Mazzagatti for this, and also a SWEET mustache.
So who do you guys think?? (BTW I am still spelling it Corea to support FOS, seriously he is a cool guy.)
