The Tennessee Athletic Commission may have stumbled upon a valuable tool in harvesting the next generation of mixed martial arts officials.

TAC Executive Director Jeff Mullen, a former judge, confirmed on Thursday that his sanctioning body had given the green light for up-and-coming official Brian Beauchamp to shadow assigned referees Dan Miragliotta, Greg Franklin, Mario Yamasaki and Herb Dean at UFC 107 “Penn vs. Sanchez” this Saturday at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tenn.

Great idea. Maybe don't shadow a few guys, but Herb and Mario are quality in my books.

I hope no up and coming judges shadow Cec.
