  1. Hey Joe why the heck are you questioning the ref? SHUT UP TOOL! dont talk that smack and put the ref on the spot! he hit him in the back of the head…period!

  2. WTF!!! He hit one blow to the back of the head unintentionally when carlo was already in a lot of troubles. It is impossible to be 100% accurate. You disqualify someone when that someone hit the opponent several times in the back of the head! Ref put himself on the spot…problably Carlo Prater is his cousin or something.

  3. You are so right @The mind!
    I’m a huge fan of Rogan but he was way out of his way this time…
    IMO,he want to book himself a cpl show in Brazil,so he acted like a Brazilian nuthugger.
    Not impressed Joe

  4. There was atleast two if not three shots to the back of the head. Silva disgrace to brazillian mma, american mma, and worldwide mma for carelesness. Good call

  5. I don’t agree with the ref’s decision, sure he might have hit the back of the head once but it’s hard not to when you have an opponent squirming on the ground so should have been a victory for Silva. Putting the ref on the spot like that after the decision is made is however rather stupid.

  6. rogan was right you f*cking punks erik silva beat the sh*t out of him he was totally right one blow was illegal

  7. rogan should not have put yamasaki in that position, he totally humiliated him. i want to see rogan referee a fight and see how he performs.

  8. The great I don’t know what fight you watched but he hardly hits him on the back of the head once, most of them are to the side.

  9. Nobody wants to see a fight end like this, but he did hit the guy in the back of the head 4-5x and it was a IN THE MOMENT call. Joe was a tad bit disrepectful to Mario “In my mind it’s a victory” so what Joe but on paper it’s a NO CONTEST DQ
