First Female Referee in the UFC

The UFC will feature its first female referee at the Ultimate Fighter Finale on June 20th. Kim Winslow out of Nevada is a retired air traffic controller and seasoned MMA referee. She has been reffing for 3 years and has officiated at the WEC. She is, as far as I know, the only female professional MMA referee in the world.

I wish her all the best in her UFC debut!

I hope she is better than the female NBA ref. I've seen her make some damn horrible calls. I also worry about her ability to control the fighters in a TKO situation.

That was the one good thing about big Dan, if guys didn't stop right away he could just yank em off.

Seriously....


Hey, I have a question, What do you do when your dishwasher breaks?




Slap her :)

Just kidding everyone. My wife is punching me pretty hard for that one right now.
Does she need help? j/k

My guess is she would have to be just as qualified if not more so, if she expects to be taken seriously by her male counterparts.
