In a post fight interview, Michael Venom Page stated that at the end of the fight referee Dan Miragliotta pushed him and called him “piece of shi*t”. Earlier in that fight Miragliotta took point away from Michael, in a situation where he was on top of his opponent doing some ground and pound and making “showman” moves which Miragliotta did not like. Referee stopped the fight, took Michael from dominant position and deducted one point from him.
"That was disgusting… I demand an apology from him."
