So when I'm in MAME (typically Libretro 2003) I have majority of my games running exactly how I want however when I go to program specific games using the TAB in mame / mapping the buttons they are being double mapped I believe RETROARCH is causing issues:

How do I NOT have RetroArch get double mapped when I'm in MAME Tab ? Basically if I press a particular button on the right side of the control panel (player 2) it will effect the left side player one. I noticed this in Mortal Kombat 1, where High Punch also triggers BLOCK on player one. Everytime I try to clear or  reMAP the buttons in the MAME / TAB setting retroarch seems to take over ughhh I hate RetroArch.

On an unrelated but I'm sure RETROARCH issue, I have other versions of MAME running on my pi such as Libtretro MAME 2014 etc... I noticed that when I hit UP on player two Joystick it triggers the TAB / menu within MAME again I think it's a binding issue on RetroArch. 

I'm reburning my SD Card because I deleted too many things from the config file, anyone know where my issue is IF you can glance my config file  what I need to turn off etc.... (I wired my control panel to 1 & 8 to exit MAME that I need to keep / select & start:? PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CHECK OUT MY CONFIG File which is attached (this is after I burned a fresh copy so no modifications trying to fix this by me to my config):

My set up is as follows;

*Also have Libretro 2014 & libretro 2000
fba as well no console stuff just MAME.
