Also, I wanted to give everyone a quick heads up that my latest column on CBSSports.com is now available, and it’s a great read!
I recently had the chance to speak with former long-time MMA referee “Big” John McCarthy for an extended interview, which you can now check out by clicking here.
Between “EliteXC: Primetime” two weeks ago and UFC 85 last weekend, I don’t think any stone was left unturned in asking John to discuss all the questionable calls that have been made by officials the last several weeks. McCarthy is a man of high integrity and was completely candid in his responses.
I also had a chance to ask John about rumors that EliteXC had tried to get him to officiate the main event between Kimbo Slice and James Thompson, as well as his thoughts as to whether knees to the head of a downed opponent should be legal.
