I followed up with Mazzulli on the questions raised.

What did they Bellator you to expect?

Mazzulli: Basically what they stated, they said, as you know, both fighters get very excited after the fight, and words may be said. Nothing was discussed about a fake fight and being ready to stop it, that was absolutely not the case. The case was that the two fighters get very excited, and if something occurs, we're going to stop it, but I just wanted to give you a heads up that they're very emotional after each win. There was nothing about a setup or any of that, absolutely not.

I regulate combative sports. When it comes to the production of the TV and everything, that's not for me to say unless there's a safety issue with the fighters. And if something did occur to the point where I felt it was excessive, a sanction would definitely have happened. But I was not told they were going to yell at each other, any of that. I was just informed that both fighters get very - I guess you want to say, "pumped up" - and are very verbal, and everyone knows that they are.
