UFC 170: Herb Dean Named Rousey-McMann Referee

UFC 170: Herb Dean Named Rousey-McMann Referee

The Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) has released the referee and judging assignments for UFC 170’s main event between UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and Sara McMann.

The title fight’s third man in the cage will once again be referee Herb Dean. While Dean drew some flack for his handling of the UFC 169 main event that saw UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barão retain his title, Dean remains one of the premiere referees in the sport today.

While Rousey has never needed the judges to decide her fights, the three judges on the call will be seasoned MMA judges Chris Lee, Glenn Trowbridge and Junichiro Kamijo.

UFC 170 will take place February 22 at the Mandalay Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
