Big John’s training the next generation of terrible refs

Have you ever dreamed of being a ref? Think your carefully thought out “Let’s fight this thing!” saying can be the next “Let’s get it on”? Got some moves that put Cecil People’s chicken chop dance to shame? Then you should go check out, where the skinny wrinkled remains of Big John McCarthy will teach you everything you need to know to make your dream a reality.

There’s not a whole bunch of information available at the moment … basically it looks like you pay $500 and then Big John flunks 75% of the class. If you’re one of the lucky 25% left over you get to pay another $500 bucks to learn how to stay the fuck out of the fighters’ way and when to end the fight. Hint: it’s before one fighter rips the spinal cord out of his opponent’s back Mortal Kombat style. Mario Yamasaki, please take note.

The school also apparently teaches people how to judge, so lets hope everyone judging the UFC gets turfed back for a refresher course in not being a blind asshole.

    How come no ref ever says, “Ready! Fight!”, 8-bit style, a-la Karate Champ?

    Ha! Winklepicker wins Thursday!

  • kentyman says:

    Yeah, I already decided I’d do my best Street Fighter 2 impression with “Round 1… Fight!”

    Did y’all notice the ref in the latest WEC who said “Let’s get it!” He’s like a lazy John McCarthy.
