I hope this hasn't been done to death, but what do you guys think?

I like Big John, as he advocated stoppages when a fighter cannot intelligently defend himself, which the UFC brass did not want, bloodthirsty fuckers.

i went with big john. the dude has been around so long that it seems easy for him to keep a fair in the cage. i cant remember herb dean fuckin up to much either. big got my vote just because of his veteran ref status

Probably Big John. Herb Dean is pretty good too. And big moustache guy hasn't really screwed up yet (as far as I know)

The answer is Shonie Carter and it isn't even close. Did you see that man in the infamous double knockout bout?

If he's actually decent as a ref I would love some personality in the cage reffing.
