What's with all the new refs?

Herb Dean was the only regular.

My guess is that the normal refs are not sanctioned in Illinois. The UFC probably had Herb Dean put through classes or a test or whatever it takes to be sanctioned in Illinois. The other refs sucked and they UFC can not allow a title fight to be jeopardized by a ref.

To be honest Most of the refs where alright tonight, but an awful referee, forgot hisname, joe Rogan gave him some stick, kept telling the fighters to get up, continuously telling them even though they were trying to improve posistions, looking for submissions and whatever... hes saying: come on guys, standup.

where they get him from? a NHL game?

yeah .. I dont know what he was thinking. The fighters were more active than normal on the ground and he keep telling them to advance position. I was yelling at the TV myself.

gdog43 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
It was literally every 5 seconds - cmon guys do something - it was a real good battle and he was just ruining it - we dont all need to see standup to enjoy a fight.
Maynard looked pretty dejected with the win

It was the first UFC in Illinois, so the refs were all hired by the State Athletic Commission. It is at their SOLE discretion who will officiate the fights.

I thought all the refs were good, but some were annoying! "Come on guys, lets go" was annoying as hell. He never stood them up, so he didn’t do anything wrong, just annoying!

The dude that looked like a 70 year old Harry Potter? That guy was a jackass, even my Father who's a die hard boxing fan was telling him to stfu, realising they were going for subs, changing position etc.

One time Joe seemed to stop mid sentence to give what I awesome was a mean glare and grrrr at that ref. You could hear Joe make a little noise after the repeated "do somethings". He was really annoying me to.

Yeah that one ref in the Clementi/Maynard fight was really starting to piss me off. When both fighters were clearly being active and actually putting on a good show, he wouldn't shut up telling them to be actuve and "hurry it up" every five seconds.
