“I would love to see fighters become refs and judges. I personally, I always make this clear, I don’t know Herb Dean. And in my whole life, I’ve probably said six words to Herb Dean, and every time it was, ‘Hi, how are you?’ That’s all I’ve ever said to Herb Dean. I think he’s the best referee in the business. The guy trains in mixed martial arts. He knows what it’s like to be punched in the face. He knows what it’s like to be choked. He knows what it’s like to be in a lot of these submissions.

You look at a guy like Steve Mazzagatti, this guy shouldn’t even be watching the UFC, let alone reffing it. You know, every time that guy is standing in there it looks like he’s doing his [expletive] grocery list while guys are in there fighting. And the list goes on, there are guys that are just bad refs and judges. I would love to see fighters start becoming refs and judges, I think it would be great, and it has to happen.”
