Steve Mazzagatti- “You need the balls to make the calls.” – PRO MMA exclusive interview

Imagine being in the center of some of the biggest fights in the world. With your decisions, you can influence if a man can feed his family for a year or if he may have to fight again next month just to make rent. You have one of the most important jobs in MMA.

Yet, it is also one of the most under-appreciated. One decision could piss off a whole team. One late stoppage and you could cost someone their life. This is serious business, this referee stuff. And it takes a serious man (or woman) to do the job.

PRO MMA (promma.info) spoke in-depth with Steve Mazzagatti on Monday. After reading our conversation with Steve, our hope is that the next time you hear these four words, “Let’s hook em’ up,” you will look at this man just a little differently, maybe with just a bit more respect, a bit more appreciation. If you do, then we have done our job.

Kimo – still in the fight

Still haven’t had enough of Kimo? The following press release was received by PRO MMA (promma.info) on Wed., July 29, 2009:

JULY 28, 2009 – HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA—KIMO LEOPOLDO is alive, well, and still in the fight. The only thing dying here is the integrity of “news” website, TMZ.COM. The website, in its haste to be first to press with its “news,” printed, and later confirmed, a wholly fabricated article that LEOPOLDO was dead. The failure by TMZ.COM to do its due diligence before rushing to publish this story was a reckless breach of journalistic ethics with real fallout.

Chief in this fallout was the damage done to LEOPOLDO’s family. LEOPOLDO’s son became aware of the reports published by TMZ.COM, and was devastated. LEOPOLDO’s other family members, and friends, similarly were distraught and emotionally stunned by the news that had been “confirmed” by TMZ.COM.
