I've got an idea of who we could have fight Couture..... Big John McCarthy.

I knew McCarthy had to be atleast a hard ass at one point in time in his life, but I had no idea.

The guy became a Referee for the UFC because he wanted to compete but his sensei/instructor Rorion Gracie wanted him to ref instead since he was a police officer (Boy things would have been much different today). He trains LAPD officers in self defense and has his own martial arts school (he has BJJ black belt under Gracie's). There is other cool stuff about him I read, but doesn't pertain as much to this. So... McCarthy could be the first ever HW champion and Referee at the same time!

Definitely! If "Mr. Controversy" Herb Dean can be a ref and fighter, then why can't Big John? Personally it's something I've always wanted to see ever since I first saw him ref UFC matches (especially the "classic" ones) because I always thought he looked big enough to hold his own. At the time I didn't know all that other stuff around him, it wasn't until I read a ufc.com article about him.

He has no plans on fighting, and im pretty sure he couldn't fight and reff for the UFC so he's have to fight somewhere else... I could be wron though.

I was obviously kidding... I doubt he would ever give up what he has to fight in the UFC... I also doubt he could take Couture.

Hes already got a victory over Brian Jonston. Too bad Brian didn't know they were fighting.

I know this is kinda stupid but just for pure entertainment value, UFC should just hold and event called "Battle of the Refs" with Herb going toe to toe with Big John and other matches.

I am sure he gets payed more than adequately, he would dominate Herb if they fought, he mounted Babalu for crying out loud!
