With the exception of the top 3, which are (for the most part) interchangeable, I have it about the same. I went with:

Big John (see the Rosa/Lucas fight from UFC on FOX for a perfect example of why he's such a good ref)
Herb Dean (basically 1b)
Josh Rosenthal (moving up the ranks)
Dan Miragliotta (I think he's gotten better over time.)

Fleek dissed one of my favorite TV shows then had the audacity to challenge Canadian Bacon.

Its payback time!

I'd rank the Referees like this.

John McCarthy
Herb Dean
Josh Rosenthal

The 2 that haven't screwed anything up that I can remember but haven't handled as many fights.

Kevin Mulhall
Kim Winslow

Then these 4 in a tie.

Mario Yamasaki
Steve Mazzagatti
Dan Miragliotta
Yves Lavigne

Kim Winslow




If I wasn't afraid of the wrath of her eating disorder support group, the Poison/Warrant joint fan club she's obviously a member of, her meth dealer, or her big brother Skeletor I would make a comment about her here.

In other words, cowcatcher is scared of Brewers' fans.

I was pretty mean there, I guess I'm not as far removed from high school, or being a knob as I thought. I haven't had my medicine yet today Fleek, I get irritable and mean spirited without it.

most all the ref's in we see in the ufc and strikeforce are good. the only one i dont like is the tall skinny lady you see on the undercards and stuff. its not that shes a woman as much as it seems like she sucks at refing.

Thats Kim Winslow,

What makes you think she sucks? Did I miss a fight she screwed up? (its highly possible).

Rosenthal has really impressed me. I can't remember any screw ups of his. Plus he did an excellent job with the Hendo vs. Shogun fight.

I never understood the Mazzagatti hate, what's he ever done wrong? I think he's kind of become a scapegoat. On the other hand, I think Herb Dean and Big John both get a little too much credit but they're still very good. Worst by far are Miragliotta, Kim Winslow, and that guy who reffed Story vs Brenneman.

Easy, Mike Beltran for the win. You may also know him from his time battling Sonic the Hedgehog.
