Carwin on Miragliotta: “Maybe he is just a big Mir fan”

UFC interim heavyweight champion, Shane Carwin questions referee Dan Miragliotta, who took his sweet time stopping his fight with Frank Mir at UFC 111 in Newark, New Jersey, admitting maybe he’s just a “big Mir fan”.

Carwin, speaking via FOX Sports, said:

“I was confident in the game plan my coaches crafted. I would never call getting in the cage with Mir ‘easy’ and I trained for the war I was expecting. I felt I was busy and I knew I was just going to try to pin him again so (the referee break) did not affect me too much. It was really weird as Dan was quick to break up the action but he seemed to let Frank get punched longer than necessary. Maybe he is just a big Mir fan.”
