Hey, remember when referee Yves Lavigne was tripping in the octagon, like literally tripping over his own feet.

Well if you forgot, UFC president Dana White is issuing a reminder in the form of his daily clip. Today (Wednesday) the clip is from UFC 84, when Tito Ortiz took on Lyoto Machida. What also happened during that fight, oh you know, the referee just fell and did a compete roll back to his feet and acted like nothing happened.

Check it out!

Do you remember watching that live?

Sometimes referees catch a lot of heat for mistakes they make or things they didn’t do right, but in this case, we were all laughing with the ref (or maybe at him).
