Referees, judges selected for UFC 226's Miocic-Cormier, Holloway-Ortega title fights

Messages recommandés

Veteran referee Marc Goddard continues to move up in the regulatory world of MMA.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission today voted unanimously to assign Goddard to UFC 216’s heavyweight title headliner between champ Stipe Miocic (18-2 MMA, 12-2 UFC) and light heavyweight titleholder Daniel Cormier (20-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC).

UFC 226 takes place July 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs live on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Goddard, whom the NSAC approved to referee in 2015, will earn $1,900 for his work as the third man in the cage. Judges set for the fight include Dave Hagen, Chris Lee and Glenn Trowbridge, all of whom are regular fixtures beside the cage for big fights. They’ll receive $1,600 each for their work.

For the event’s pay-per-view co-headliner, a featherweight title fight between champ Max Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) and surging contender Brian Ortega (14-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC), the action will be overseen by Herb Dean, the NSAC voted unanimously. Judges for the fight are Derek Cleary, Sal D’Amato, and Junichiro Kamijo. Dean will receive $1,900 for the assignment, and the judges will get $1,600 each.

There were no objections raised about the assignments during the NSAC meeting, which took place today in Las Vegas.
