He's been around forever, so should know everything - sounds like he had a terrible off-night

He fought Erik Paulson on wcc years ago. I don't know what level of involvement he has had since then, I just assumed he had been watching the sport closely since then, maybe he hasn't at all.

He has been an MMA ref for years. He has also had MMA fights.

Actually, by doing a little research, it seems that he worked a bunch of fights in 2006, but hasn't done much, or anything, until this year.

I did, and he was terrible. But, he has been involved with the sport off an on for many years. You definitely think that he has the basic rules down, by now. He just clearly has a bias for strikers.

'ref exhibits clear bias'

Not a good headline

Worst officiating I've ever seen. He didn't seem to even know basic rules (IE no using your forehead. What the fuck are you talking about James?) And that stand up that cost Spartan the fight was the fastest I've ever seen. They were only on the ground for what, 10 seconds at most? Atrocious.
