i dont think you can get a better seat than being inside the actual cage.

Oh I definately agree, but sometimes it's just nice to let other people do the work. Big John gets a chance to sit, watch and even have some popcorn if he so chooses.

I suppose only he could say whether or not he'll enjoy his night off though.

Besides doing MMA I am also a fencer and I have directed fencing matches. It's not as fun. You tend to miss the big picture and focus more on detail and things that people do wrong and look for when you need to stop the fight. Sure you have a good seat but (I know fencing and fighting arn't the same) you tend to miss miss a lot of it becuase of your focus being on directing and not on taking in the whole of the fight.

I’ve actually read an interview with big john where he said basically the same thing. He said there are very few fights he actually gets to “watch” because he is usually focused on one thing, such as watching a fighter that might be in trouble trying to judge if he should step in or not. So he really doesn’t get to take the whole fight in.

Good Post! Repped! I wouldn't have guessed Big john wouldn't be the main event's referee! He always was kind of the symbol for UFC to me... Oh well I hope he refs UFC 67.
