I am fine with the choices of judges although when I saw Cecil Peoples, I thought "time to open the floodgates". If this fight goes the distance, people will complain.

how is the Plumber going to be able pull either man off of the other, I heard Big John is thinking about coming back and they do have Dam Murg and Herb. I know he can but it just looks weird.

Don't forget the bald brotherhood, Josh Rosenthal & Yves Lavigne. But my guess is they wanted who they felt was the most experienced big-fight referee for this one, so that probably meant Yamasaki with Mazzagatti second choice.

I didn't think they let anyone know who the ref will be until right before the fight.

Now that you mention it...I thought that's how they did it, too.

hmm ok.

First Dana goes on to say that Lesnar can be the #1 HW.

Now in that fight we have Jeff Mullen AND Cecil Peoples as judges.

If I ever thought the UFC was fixed, things like this would just fuel my belief.

With Cecil on board you can almost count on a split decision if it goes to the judges. Glad to hear Mario's on board. He's probably the best there is right now.
