The UFC says it was unacceptable...
Jason High has apologized for shoving a referee during his bout at UFC Fight Night 42. High shoved referee Kevin Mulhall after his loss to Rafael dos Anjos at the show and walked away.
UFC senior director of public relations Dave Sholler noted that punishment of High may be in the cards, saying, "Ultimately, that decision is going to be up to the commission, when you talk about fines or suspensions. On behalf of the organization, completely unacceptable. You can't put your hands on the official. In the heat of the moment, a lot of things can happen – you can't put your hands on an official. So we'll regroup on Monday with the executive team and we'll figure out if there's any other things that need to happen."
High posted to Twitter:
Incredibly sorry & embarrassed for the ref incident. Will never happen again.
