Five UFC Referees Who Could Beat The Hell Out Of You

Spread the word!


Dan Miragliotta

At 6’4″ and around 280 pounds, Dan Miragliotta is one guy you don’t want to act up around. He is a fifth degree black belt in Kempo Karate, trains Muay Thai and is also a Renzo Gracie BJJ black belt.

He famously put a choke hold on Paul Daley after the infamous sucker punch on Josh Koscheck, and check out this story from the MMA forums of when he choked out a rowdy fan at UFC 83:


“Just before the main event, some wacko at Bell Centre decided to jump the barrier go after the 6-5, 270-pound (?) Miragliotta. In a split second, the jackass was on the ground and Miragliotta had his back. He cinched in a rear naked choke!!!!! Had the Bell Centre security not stepped in, I think Miragliotta would’ve put the kid to sleep or better yet, broken his neck. I couldn’t get the choke in a photo but I got the aftermath with a very fired up Miragliotta getting up off the floor.”
