“Big” John McCarthy is making a big move.

The legendary mixed martial arts referee will be joining Bellator MMA as a member of its broadcast team, the promotion announced Tuesday. McCarthy will start his duties as a color commentator at Bellator 192 on Jan. 20 in Los Angeles. It will be the first Bellator card on the newly re-branded Paramount Network.

Cool! I recently watched the Affliction shows for the first time and got to hear Big John on call and I was really impressed! He definitely knows what he's talking about, speaks very clearly and doesn't trail off that much. Be cool to hear him commentate for Bellator

I do find it weird that Bellator has Mike Goldberg, Mauro Ranello, and now Frank Mir along with Chael Sonnen when he's not fighting, and yet, they're still hiring more commentators. Just find it a little weird, haha.
