Josh Rosenthal will not be referring any MMA fights in the near future.
The veteran third man inside the cage has been sentenced to 37 months in jail following a drug bust. Rosenthal will not be allowed parole after being found to have 1,356 marijuana plants in a warehouse under his name.
Rosenthal last refereed a bout this past May in Utah. He has previously worked several major UFC fights, including many championship ones.
Rosenthal will also face a three-year supervised release and must pay a $100 special assessment fee. The “street value” of the marijuana he had in his possession was over $6 million.
The sentencing, handed down in the U.S. District Court in Oakland, California, was first reported by MMAFighting.com.
