Dana White reacts to Jon Fitch’s WSOF 3 loss to Josh Burkman

Dana White reacts to Jon Fitch’s WSOF 3 loss to Josh Burkman

UFC President Dana White hasn’t had a lot nice things about welterweight Jon Fitch, especially in the wake of the former title-contender’s release and subsequent statements about the way he was treated during his eight-year run in the organization. As such, a window of opportunity was opened last night when Fitch was choked unconscious less than a minute into his WSOF 3 match-up with Josh Burkman. However, rather than kick Fitch while down, White directed a string of insults towards one of the bout’s other participants.

“Thank god Josh has class and stopped because that f*cking idiot Mazzagatti had NO CLUE what was going on,” posted White on The Underground shortly after the scrap’s conclusion.

The assessment echoed White’s words on Twitter.

“Mazzagatti is a clueless idiot who will hurt someone and continue to ruin guy’s legacies,” wrote White. “NSAC needs to seriously do something!! When you have been a ref that long and still don’t know what you are doing its time to go away!!!!!”

As fans who tuned in to see the bout also likely noticed, referee Steve Mazzagatti was in poor position to observe the action ultimately leading to Fitch falling asleep and the two were only separated once Burkman decided to stand up. Mazzagatti has been the target of White’s criticism on numerous occasions in the past as well based on similarly shady stoppages and other questionable decisions in the cage.

Mazzagatti has yet to respond to White’s remarks or his take on the finishing sequence.

    He didn’t seem to know what to do after Burkman stood up and raised his hands, you could kinda tell by his face he was like wait why’d you stop fighting..oh that’s why.

  • Dufresne says:

    God help us if Mazzagatti and Winslow ever hook up. Their children would be the lease competent humans on the face of the earth.

  • Dufresne says:

    Hey facebook card, it sure would be nice if you wouldn’t constantly glitch.

  • Dr.Stoppage says:

    I dunno Dufresne, maybe two wrongs could make a right.
    It was an awesome sequence of events, right up there with Jones vs. Machida.
    Man, I expected Burkman to get an asskicking.
    What a performance!

  • Midget says:

    The level of competence could be up their with Cecil Peoples’ stint as a referee!

  • THEGUNNER says:

    Burkman will be in the ufc by next year. Sucks fitch has this bad luck. Its like losing a union job then not performing at a wherehouse job well.

  • MCM says:

    Great analogy GUNNER. And it does suck for Fitch. I’m not ready to write him off like some people are. It depends on how he does in his next fight back. I remember when this old guy named Hendo left the UFC and then went out and lost his first fight to a WW, only to comeback and win a title and become a top 3 LHW. I’m still holding out hope.
