mirg-a-horrible is paid off. worst ref ever

I always liked seeing Miragliotta manhandling Paul Daley after his Koscheck suckerpunch.

Is that really Mazagati laid out for the save in that first one? Way to sacrifice yourself dude! I think he should bring back the 70s pornstar mustache he used to rock. It was his best feature as a ref.

Garza was very close to killing that poor dude.

Thank god for the Maz and his shoulder tackle.

knucklesamitch - definitely not just you. That is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.

This needs the gif of Cecil "saving" Sean Salmon after getting KneedTFO by Jorge Santiago, NOW

Would love to see a gif of big Dan subduing the cage invader...
And for the love of pete, what the heck is Peoples doing?
FattyYarborough- January 27, 2012 at 10:32 am
@Fletch the V Stretch - The ref poked Heath Herring in the eye in that one. Dan Miragliotta is an idiot.
KarmaAteMyCat- January 27, 2012 at 10:12 am
I watched the top image like a 100 times its awesome
knucklesamitch- January 27, 2012 at 10:00 am
I always thought it was funny when Alessio used the ref's shirt to wipe the blood from his face ... but that's just me.

@ Fletch
Hardy was fighting Gono. Right before the end of the fight Gono went to throw a flying knee and Big Dan stepped in to stop it and ended up shoving him on his ass because Gono landed weird

This is one of the best posts I've ever seen.
Kid Clam Curtains- January 27, 2012 at 9:23 am
I'm not 100% sure but I think the first gif is Pablo Garza hammerfucking Fredson Paixao.
RearNakedSpoon- January 27, 2012 at 9:10 am
HAHAHA, dunno why I never expected to see Cecil doing whatever the fuck that is.
Motivated Penn- January 27, 2012 at 9:09 am
Hahaha, Cecil Peoples is so fucking contrived.
Gladheateher- January 27, 2012 at 9:01 am
Time expired in the Dan Hardy Gif. So the ref had to stop the flying knee attempt. might have put out Hardy's lights too.
The Fresh One- January 27, 2012 at 9:01 am
What fight is the very first one?
raizor- January 27, 2012 at 8:40 am
Hahaha, I don't remember half of these happening. The ref divebomb/tackle in the first one is great. And Cecil, man, wtf??
Kid Clam Curtains- January 27, 2012 at 8:14 am
Yoshiaki Yatsu may have been the worst fighter ever to step in the cage/ring. But fuck could that guy take some damage. The second fight with Goodridge I'm sure he told his corner to throw the fucking towel as fast and hard as possible so he didn't end up with more brain damage caused by their first fight. If you've never seen it google 'Goodridge Yatsu' right now. Maybe the most damage anyone's ever taken in an mma fight (without breaking a limb).
DangadaDang- January 27, 2012 at 8:07 am
Every time I see that Cecil Peoples gif, I just think of how long he must have spent in front of a full length mirror figuring that move out.
Cheeseburger Eddie- January 27, 2012 at 7:46 am
^Damnit Bacon, I was about to say that. And how is Vila not in the UFC flyweight tourny? I know he lost in the Bellator tourny, anybody know if he's still under contract with them?
Fletch the V Stretch- January 27, 2012 at 7:45 am
LOL, ok it all makes sense. Thanks for clearing that up Ben.

I don't know, you could have just added another page of big Dan, I wouldn't have complained.
Canadian Bacon- January 27, 2012 at 7:41 am
Whats even better about the double KO one is, that referee is actually Mr International himself: Shonie Carter guest refereeing that fight.
bgoldstein- January 27, 2012 at 7:40 am
@ MediocreThreat: I think that's Goodridge/Yatsu 2 @ PRIDE 16.

@ Fletch: Miragliotta intercepted Gono because the round ended. Miragliotta poked Herring in the eye. I had like four more Miragliotta gifs I could have used, but I didn't want to make this all about Big Dan.
