UFC president Dana White (pictured) was none too pleased Jason High shoved referee Kevin Mulhall after Saturday’s TKO loss to Rafael dos Anjos.

Well, let’s actually say White was pissed because he intends on handing High his walking papers.

“What I did find out is that I guess that Jason High kid got up and pushed a referee – he’s cut,” White said on UFC.com. “I’m going to cut him. I look at that the way [Paul] Daley put his hands on his opponent after a fight was over.

“You don’t ever, ever f****** touch a referee, ever. You’re done here. He’s been apologizing on Twitter, but he’s done.”

High has won half of his four fights in the UFC since transitioning from Strikeforce. “The Kansas City Bandit” owns a 18-5 professional record.
