Referee Yamasaki controversy



Ref Mario Yamasaki is in hot water over comments he made predicting that the Lesnar vs. Overeem fight would end quickly, given he's the referee for the main event tonight and will be the person who has to step in to stop it provided it doesn't go five rounds.

"I think it's going to be great," Yamasaki said today on MMA Junkie Radio. "Two big guys in a huge fight. Brock Lesnar is pretty aggressive, so this fight is going to go really fast. I don't know which way, but I don't think it goes past the first round."
