Emotional after getting stopped by Rafael dos Anjos, ATT’s Jason High took his frustrations out on the in-cage official.

As seen on the FOX Sports 1 broadcast, High shoved the referee halfway across the cage for stopping the fight.

UFC Executive, Dave Sholler commented on the incident during the evening’s post-fight press conference:

High also commented and apologized for the infraction:
