It was the perfect going away gift for a referee • Saturday’s lightweight war between Roger Huerta and Clay Guida. But like all great ‘third men’, John McCarthy • who retired as an active referee following last weekend’s main event - was noticeable by being noly noticeable, making all the right moves and all the right calls, a fitting end to a 13 year journey that saw McCarthy become as much a part of the UFC as the great fighters who have graced its Octagon.

The big man has been there from the start if memory serves me correctly - he will be missed big time.
