    My vote is John McCarthy, the guy just doesn't make mistakes. He has made mistakes in the old days, but minimizes them in his recent years.

    Herb was always up there but he's had some high profile mistakes as of late.

    Keith Peterson is improving too.

    The little muscled up dude from last weekend, I forget his name but he looks hilarious, pretty sure he's the guy who Sakara just wiped his blood on too and the little fucker didn't care he just chuckled

    Mike Beltran. Only referee to DQ someone for timidity.

    My favorite will always be Josh Rosenthal even if he did have a few blunders.

    Well he is back now, but on the small circuits because the guy was an El Chapo in the making - in the Marijuana world lol. I liked Josh, he was right for letting that Brock fight go - if that was Yves, it would have been stopped before Brock hit the canvas.

    What fight did he do that for? That timidity must have been ridiculously bad!

    My vote also goes to Big John.. The guy is consistent and tends to make the right calls, unlike Herb Dean who I think is overrated

    Big John easily. He's the most consistent.

    I miss Josh Rosenthal, you would never have to worry about an early stoppage with him lol
