Veteran referee ‘Big’ John McCarthy has revealed that he is not surprised that the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has not yet awarded him a licence to officiate in Nevada. McCarthy applied for a license recently but the application has apparently been put on ice by the commission as part of a backlog of applications.
“I knew that was going to happen. I am not surprised at all,” said McCarthy today. He spoke to Fighters Only at Macau in China, where he is refereeing this weekend’s Art of War 14 event.
