    al-turk is lucky they found his eye. something needs to be done about the refereeing in MMA. Mirgliotta, and Herb Dean are atrocious and need to be shitcanned. big john should open up a school or something, its getting worse.

    i wouldnt say Herb Dean is atrocious……but Dan Mirgliotta needs to find a new fucking job. he seems like a nice guy and all, but damn, he’s made way too many mistakes.
