Mario Mazzagatti does it again!!! This guy is more concerned with doing this dumb ass heart bullshit then Ref'n the fight!!! Steals a great moment from Lee or let Mike fight it or tap. Nobody gives a shit that u can make a heart with ur hands like a 12 year old girl they want u to pay attention to what's going on in the fight and do ur job.

This is far from the first time Yamasaki has come under fire. Robert Whittake gave Jacare Souza some extra violence under Yamasaki's supervision in April. Derrick Lewis landed some additional blows against Travis Browne in February. Most recently, Matthew Lopez mollywhopped Johnny Eduardo while Yamasaki looked on.

Chiesa himself was livid, saying that Yamasaki should never officiate again.
