This one is pretty extensive and touches on a lot of subjects so I thought I would post it too. Really good to hear that The Fight Network should be comming to combat sport fans in the States soon. I can't say enough about this channel.

Chris Howie of MMANews.com: This is Chris Howie with MMANews.com and today I am speaking with former UFC head referee and the newest addition to the Fight Network team, "Big" John McCarthy. How are you today John?

"Big" John McCarthy: I'm doing good. Just spending a few days here in Toronto.

MMANews.com: How are you liking the city?

"Big" John McCarthy: Well, they lied to me and said it never snowed here.

thanks for post, his interviews are always good

fav part:

MMANews.com: Do you feel there are any promotions out there now that can compete with the UFC?

"Big" John McCarthy: There are none out there now that are competing. There are some that are existing around them but the UFC dominates the sport in terms of programming, putting on the biggest fights - they dominate.

he does say there are others that "CAN" compete, but as of now, as everyone knows, they are not
good way of putting it big john

WAR MMA and WAR BIG JOHN!
he'll return as a special guest referee for a super fight within next ten years

Wouldn't that be something, hell even if it was in a organization other than the UFC. He is 45 years old, but he is also a BJJ black belt and a very big guy, I doubt it would ever happen but I know if it ever did I would be watching for sure. I agree with the comment about seeing him as a Ref again for a superfight down the line somewhere, this will def. happen.
