I know he had his beef with them before but I have seen him ref a couple events last year so I have no idea whats going on there. I believe the AC assigns the judges and refs so I guess McCarthy has requested not to ref any of their events?

on a side note, I think Marc Goddard has become a solid ref and should start getting more high profile fights

I got the feeling Big John wasn't into traveling. I might be wrong but I think he only Refs in Cali and Vegas. But again I might be wrong on that.

doesn't he run a program/school for MMA judges and referees? Maybe a combination of both restricts where he refs.

but this fight is in Vegas though

Mazz has made some bad calls before but I think he gets too much heat.

On the whole, he's not that bad.

Helwani says Big John isn't commissioned in Nevada. So no Vegas fights for him.

Also, I like Mirgliotta for title fights. Say what you want about Mirgliotta but when he calls a fight you know there will be no early stoppage.
