Mazzagatti Claims Not to Be Offended by Brock Lesnar’s “Anyone But Mazzagatti” Ref Request


Steve Mazzagatti responds to Brock Lesnar’s request – Watch more free videos
(Props: MMA Scraps)

Referee Steve Mazzagatti is playing it cool regarding Brock Lesnar‘s very specific request that he not be allowed to ref the main event at UFC 91. Doesn’t bother him at all, or so he would have us believe. Personally, I’m not buying it. Maybe I’m just a sad, vindictive person, but if it was me Lesnar was trying to blackball from the main event, I’d definitely want to see Randy Couture turn his big, square face into mush.

Not Steve “Love Thy Enemy” Mazzagatti, though. He says requesting a different ref is Lesnar’s right. He also says it’s “easy to get in the ring and walk around and look cool,” but it’s another thing to have to make the calls. Hold up, look cool? Steve, we need to talk about a few things, and yes, one of those things is your would-be catch phrase, “hook ‘em up.” It’s going to be a long and unpleasant talk for both of us, but it has to happen.

Maz is a fuck up. He is a superfan. I saw him fuck fighters up, because he is hanging on the fuckin cage - using it to scratch his back.

Seriously it makes me sick the athletic commissions let him in this game.

Taxidriver - Johnson/Burns was a weird situation? it was a DQ by illegal strike, that isn't that unusual. What was unusual was a ref blowing the call so badly. I agree that Lesnar is bitching to much but to call Mazzy a "really good ref"............. to call Steve - hands off the fence - Mazzagatti "a good ref" is a stretch.

Mazzagatti is a really good ref. The Brock rullling wouldn't be contraversial if it wasn't Brock it wouldn't be controversial. Also in regards to the athony johnson fight people need to let up it was kinda a weird situation and people make mistakes he has apologized but, I think the blame should be put on Kevin Burns.

Nothing would please me more than to see Brock get embarrased in the cage (as in, someone floors him in a few seconds like fedor did Sylvia). That would totally make my day.

I dont mind the mazman. miragliotta doesnt get a shout out like that in my book. thompson beat kimbo in the 2nd round.

At first when Mazzagatti started sporting the stache I thought it was absolutely hideous. Now that he doesn't have it I kind of miss it. Guess you really don't know what you've got till it's gone. Too cliche? I don't think so either.

If Mazzagatti wants to "look cool" he'll bring the stache back...

Fuck Mazzagatti. He should be suspended for that awful Anthony Johnson fight ruling.

Yeah Bruce Buffer's way of talking and his sayings are MUCH lamer than Steve Mazagatti... Steve sounds like a chill dude who is fair and neutral, and he makes mistakes. Brock was going apeshit on Frank Mirs head.. and a guy that is Brocks size pounding away anywhere near the back of the head is dangerous, especially if he doesnt hear your warnings.

Brock said he never heard any warnings, but I am the same way.. when I am going crazy in training and my coach and partners are trying to tell me what to do, I automatically filter them out and cant recall anything they said to me.

Steve seems like a stand-up guy.

Good job.

Hey, Mazagatti is sweet. I miss the Burt Reynolds 'stache. I encourage Steve Mazagatti to say 'hook em up' louder. Beats Buffer's 'Iiiiiiiiiit's Tiiiiiime' any day. Long live mazagatii!
PS. I am aware Buffer is not a ref, but as far as shitty catch phrases go, 'hook 'em up' beats alot of things. So kiss my ass!

He should pray he doesn't get "Eye Poke" Dan Mergliata or whatever his name is.
Shatteredhawk- October 28, 2008 at 10:46 pm
Fuck Mazzagatti, They should of asked a more seasoned ref i.e. Big John

I hope Lesnar gets his ass kicked.

What ever happened to your sweet sex offender mustache?

Lesnar is the UFC's newest diva. I hope the old man embarrasses him.
