I think it's great and hope the UFC keeps up with giving guys more than one way to be involved so that in years to come they can retire from, but still be part of the sport. Some day I hope we will see guys like Bisping Sonnen and Florian as judges or even as Refs.
I'm all for former fighters taking jobs as analysts as they offer an insight into the sport that you couldn't get on the sidelines. I think Refereeing would be a possible career path as well but I absolutely hate the idea of them ever becoming judges.
Florian can't even hide his biases as an Analyst, I can't imagine how bad his decisions would be as a judge. I want as much impartiality as possible in judging and I don't think former fighters could remain impartial when it comes to guys they know/trained with or fought previously.
