    Has he sorted out his problems with the NSAC now with Kizer gone?

    Weird that we know who is reffing the Fox main event before we actually know who is in the main event.

    Both events are in California (San Jose and Los Angeles). IIRC, McCarthy has not officiated in Nevada in years.

    Yeah, the best in the business is Leon Roberts IMO but McCarthy won't have any of Jones's shit. He knows that Jones knows exactly what he is doing, and holds him accountable for it. I like it.

    I feel good when big John is there. Chances of a BS stoppage is greatly reduced.

    He's not licensed in Nevada because he called publicly said the NSAC is corrupt. He doesn't have that problem elsewhere.

    I actually get more excited for fights when I see Big John in there because I know there isn't going to be any bullshit. Sad I can't say the same for anyone else.

    I am sure he will get it.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he has the clout to make it happen since he's the best in the business.

    Love Big John. It's always good seeing him in the cage.

    Now we just need to get the judges sorted out.

    Him and Dean are the best refs out there. At times I have thought Dean was sketchy, but he has been a fighter and still trains. Good to see John doing main events. Great Ref!

    Too easy...If Jon Jones can duck Gus or Cormier, what makes you think he can't duck big John?
