Dean draws heavyweight, Mazzagatti welterweights


Veteran referees Herb Dean and Steve Mazzagatti have been officially appointed as the third men in the cage for the UFC's upcoming title fights.

Dean will oversee the heavyweight title unification match at UFC 100 between current champion Brock Lesnar and interim title-holder Frank Mir, while Mazzagatti will referee the same card's welterweight title fight between champion Georges St. Pierre and challenger Thiago Alves,

The decision was made at the Nevada State Athletic Commission's June meeting, and NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer confirmed the appointments on Tuesday's edition of "GoodSports," co-hosted by Radio's George Garcia.

Mazzagatti said he warned them before deducting a point, a warning neither fighter heard. The point is without BJM in the picture, your choices are either shit or shit. Mario Yamasaki is the only ref in the UFC that I think does a consistently good job. I really do think that Lavigne and Mirgliotta's horrible reffing is going to get someone seriously injured very soon.

They were warned in the dressing room, and at the rules meeting.

Do you want the no-warning, point-deducting ref, or would you rather have the ref who will let you get blasted with elbows while pretending he didn't hear the bell?
