Steve Mazzagatti -- the worst referee in MMA |
It is worrying that there's not a huge amount of transparency when it comes to what makes a person qualified to be a referee or judge. I think technocratically when it comes to refs & judging, in that you can only be qualified if you have active experience in the sport, including exposure to all aspects of martial arts that may be utilised in the cage. As far as I know Mazz has Muay Thai and boxing experience, but no Jiu Jitsu.
