Maybe. Remember what happened at UFC 142 when White and Ferttita made it pretty clear that Anthony Johnson was going to be cut unless he had a spectacular victory? Miragliotta's officiating in the Belfort/Johnson fight was extremely suspect. When the UFC puts on fights outside of the US, the American refs that work the cards are actually working for Zuffa.

Of course, trying to destroy Jon Jones, who's the one young American rising star who's come up with the promotion since most of the old guard retired, because he turned down a super short notice fight and a card fell apart due to Zuffa's own incompetence would be mind-bogglingly stupid, but given the behavior of Zuffa management over the past several years, I wouldn't put it past them.
