    From an interview with Big John. It would be great to see him back in the octagon.

    In his final blog, McCarthy, a retired police officer and current fight gym owner, hinted that his next move could be a return to refereeing.

    “A few people have said that I have attacked the UFC,” wrote McCarthy. “That is simply not true. I have never said anything bad about the UFC. I spent 14 years of my life trying to build up the UFC and make people understand how incredible the fighters of MMA were. I considered myself very lucky in the fact that I was able to be around the UFC for as long as I was and you never know maybe I will go back to refereeing and someday work another UFC.”
