Fight fans wants Mario Yamakasi to refree the fight between Nate Diaz and Khamzat Chimaev. Mario Yamasaki is half Japanese and half Brazilian and was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. His family has a history of martial arts and he started his training for Judo at a very young age. Later, Yamazaki shifted to Jiu Jitsu and trained for many years under several teachers. Yamasaki holds a 5th-degree black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu as well as a black belt in Judo.

Yamasaki along with his brother started working for the Ultimate Fighter Championship way back in 1988. They helped the promotion organise and market the first Brazilian UFC event. Initially, Yamasaki had no intentions to become a referee but when UFC was searching for referees, Yamasaki took the opportunity and the rest is history.

Up until now, Yamasaki has refereed around 400 professional MMA fights in various promotions. Yamasaki is extremely popular among fighters and fans around the world and they know him distinctly for the heart sign that he makes while in front of the camera.

That’s the thing that makes Yamasaki famous but it is his controversial moments while refereeing the fights. In general, Yamasaki is infamous for his ruthless attitude as he tends to let the fight continue even if the fighter has already given up. It has led to many fighters taking serious beatings even after losing consciousness.
