John McCarthy backs Dana White in ‘removing’ judges from Fight Island


UFC referee John McCarthy revealed Dana White has the right to “remove” a judge from Fight Island if their “performance is not acceptable”.

It comes after Mark Collett handed in three suspect scorecards at UFC 251 in Abu Dhabi.
Legendary official McCarthy said as the UFC provided the referees and judges opposed to an athletic commission, they have the right to fire them if they are unhappy with performances.

He tweeted: The @ufc hired, transported, tested & paid for Mark Collet to be part of 251 and they will be paying him to be a part of the other shows on Fight Island.

“When your performance is not acceptable, your employer has the right to remove you from their employ.

“Let’s see if they do it.”
