    stupid question alert:

    i'm watching IFL on fox sports network right now and Herb dean is ref, is the IFL affiliated with UFC or is Dean just ref'ing for everyone who will pay him? or did the UFC cut him lose?

    I don't really care about Herb Dean but just started wondering when i saw him ref'ing for IFL.

    I don't know about his contract with the UFC but I do know that Herb refs for King of the Cage as well. I don't think his contract with the UFC says he can only exclusively ref for them. Which makes sense, otherwise he would only work once a month.

    I think theres an organization of referees such as Herb and Big John that promotions hire for their events.

    Edit: nevermind I think muscle68 is right

    For sanctioned events thats true. When they do these GC/KOTC, etc res shows the promoter hires them. Herb and Cecil both work these shows sometimes.

    I believe only BJM has some sort of inside deal/contract with the UFC

    I've only seen him in K-1 in Japan outside of the UFC

    Yeah, Cecil is hands down the worst ref I've ever seen.
