I have been judging MMA now on the regional circuit for a number of years and have loved attending amateur and semi-pro events in this capacity.

Starting out by attending a seminar in MMA Refereeing and Judging, held by UFC Referee Marc Goddard, I madee my first steps into the world of judging.

My first event was Night of the Gladiators in Stoke-on-Trent. This was held on 14th September in Liquid Nightclub, Hanley. Going in, I had no idea what to expect, or whether I would even be judging. My fears we allayed when Ross advised me that I would be one of the three judges on duty that night.

Most recently I attended, and passed, a course in MMA judging held by the UKMMAF. While MMA is currently has not governing body in the UK the UKMMAF are close to agreeing a governance platform for future events and make self regulation a thing of the past.

If you are looking for competent judges, or know anyone who is then please drop me a line in the comments and I’ll contact you privately to discuss further. References can be provided.
