"Let's get it on!"
The phrase that MMA fans became familiar with over the years while
watching "Big" John McCarthy referee over 500 UFC fights. Those famous
words will be heard once again on August 1, at the San Diego Sports
Arena in San Diego, Calif. has confirmed that the California Athletic
Commission has assigned McCarthy to referee the next UFC event, live on
McCarthy has not refereed a UFC event since December 2007. It was
the finale of TUF: Team Hughes vs. Team Serra, and McCarthy was in the
octagon for the night's main event between Roger Huerta and Clay Guida. McCarthy stated the day before the match that he would retire after officiating that fight.
Since leaving the UFC, McCarthy has been busy. In early 2008, he
opened his own referee and officiating course for MMA officials, called
COMMAND (Certification of Officials for Mixed Martial Arts
Development). As it stands, COMMAND is the only nationally certified
program that is recognized by the Association of Boxing Commissions
(A.B.C.) for referees and judges in mixed martial arts.
McCarthy made his return to officiating at a Strikeforce event in
late 2008, and was also designated as a judge this past January at WEC 46.
As of right now, it is unknown how many fights "Big" John will
officiate on August 1. He will not be providing any interviews or
comments leading up to the event.
