AN IRATE REF, DAN MIRAGLIOTTA RESPONDS TO MEDIA/FAN CLAIMS OF FIGHT FIXING AND A CBS’ AGENDA

Big Dan was excellent as always. The ref, who was in there for 4-of-5 televised fights, reacts to critics saying the Kimbo-Thompson stoppage was “controversial.”

He also explained exactly what Scott Smith said after the Robbie Lawler eye poker and why the fight was stopped. He claimed Smith also had a broken foot.

Miragliotta¬†threw in a nugget about Phil Baroni. He said Baroni’s entrance was a profane disaster. Dan’s young kids were ringside and had to listen to the “New York Ass” grab his groin and talk about his c*ck and f*cking.

Dan’s a big dude at 6-foot-4, 296 lbs. Thank god, he’s the only ref who could probably take a face slap from James Thompson and shrug it off (Herb Dean probably could too). Big Dan said Thompson had no idea where he was when the fight against Kimbo was stopped. He thought he was still fighting when he pushed the ref in the face. He said the same went for the “New York Ass,” who was grabbing Big Dan’s leg as the fight was stopped.

As for the fight fixing claims and CBS’ agenda in stopping the Lawler-Smith fight early, Miragliotta called major bullsh*t.

    Yeah Dan is gonna say the fights fixed? He fucked up, I hope he gets banned from this sport.

    One question….
    Why was Thompson allowed in with that hemotoma on his ear?
    Answer —— it was a joke to even to let this fight begin. I lost alot of respect for Miragliotta. Money over safety.. Money over common sense. We all knew it would be over quick. Also Thompson was just as hurt in round one. Why not stop it then? The woman fight was great and the Lawler fight was good until you had a female doctor stop the fight because she had no clue. Unless Smith did say he couldnt see. Which he denied. Just a note at that time the card was 30 minutes behind schedule! HMMMM………. Overall grade C+… even bad MMA is still better than none at all!
