Female MMA Referee out of West Michigan

She's been doing it for two years now...ref'ing MMA fights that is! We love hearing about MMA referees getting in the limelight, and there's nothing better than hearing about another female MMA referee.


Jamie Lange is a massage therapist and certified mixed-martial arts referee. She works at Active Life chiropractic in Grand Rapids and has been officiating MMA fights for two years. She's a masseuse by day, but ref's MMA fights on the weekends "as a form of stress relief."


"When I say 'fight' it's me and them.  It's honest and I see everything."


Thank you to WZZM Photojournalist Aaron Russman, who produced this video profile of Lange.


What NOT to do as an MMA Referee!

This is not how to referee an MMA fight! Watch closely as the ref interferes with the fight, half-way stands up the fighter on the ground...and leaves his face exposed for the opponent to then pound into a win. Crazy!



John McCarthy Explains Travis Browne-Gabriel Gonzaga Ending to KFlo

According to Dana Becker, "Veteran MMA referee John McCarthy was asked by Kenny Florian his thoughts on the conclusion to this past Saturday's Travis Browne vs. Gabriel Gonzaga bout. Browne was awarded the victory, but Gonzaga is planning an appeal. While Gonzaga appeared to have Browne tied up in the clinch against the fence, he allowed "Hapa" an opening. Browne reigned down with several big elbows, though some appeared to be illegally struck to the back of the head."

To read McCarthy's answer, please read the article here: Fightline.
