    Default Referees

    Some of the established referees like,

    Myself, marc Goddard, leon roberts, mark woodard, grant etc evolved into it as mma was developing in the Uk

    Now, there are some events using sanctioning via an established group, ISKA for example, where they supply all the officils on the events, all of whom have been on a course within the group.

    There are also many people "having a go" a refereeing especially on smaller shows where there isn't much money available to pay for officials.

    There are mma events popping up everywhere now, everyone seems to be puting on a show, referees and officials are going to be in demand.

    I myself now supply mma officials to events, i can offer the whole package of referee/s, judges, timekeeper, m.c., commentator . these are all people I know and who have grown up in the mma industry.

    I also plan to offer short courses to cover the basics in judging and refereeing to at least give new mma officials a start in the right direction until there is an established and recognised system in place. Of course this is only my own perspective and my opinions I can give them based on my 8 years experience of judging and refereeing in mma

    Hopefully one day there will be a recoginsed system in place which everyone casn use and will be happy with

    That would be good, problem with friends, fighters etc doing the refs job is they might not pick up when a fighter is in trouble. Thats the main concern I have with non official officals.

    A course would be spot on, I know a few who would hapily attend something like this

    As Neil is offering we do the same through www.mmaconsultancy.co.uk working on shows around the UK as well as abroad. Until there is a regulatory body in the UK its just a case of promoters working with who they can trust and know.

    I would like to go on a judging course, to see exactly how they would score fights and to learn more about how hard their job is

    me to , something like this could bring MMA refing inline with BJJ and Boxing.
    Even if a list of reputable refs is available to all it would be good.

    Aaron's level of understanding of MMA and the extent of his contributions to MMA in the UK have often been underestimated
    Any opinions I express on this forum are entirely personal opinions and it should not be assumed that they reflect the official view of any organisations I am connected with

    I agree but i think he is starting to get the recognition he deserves and most Northern shows are using his expertise in one way or another now
