Since all anyone ever talks about is the bad things referees do let's talk about the good things they do for once… Since I'm from Edmonton and those are the referees I know I'd like to hear who you other Edmonton fans, fighters, coaches and everyone else think is the best referee in the Edmonton MMA Scene?

 

John Braak

Kyle Cardinal

Tomas Collins

Vern Gorman

Andy Social

 

I know there are probably a few that I'm missing so feel free to add to my list!

I've always been a fan of Vern. He does a great job of explaining the rules before the fight, and clearing anything up, if need be.

And overall just find him to be fair, consistent, and a great ref.

Kyle Cardinal has a great eye for reffing also. Although he's SO comfortable reffing that against Lee Mein's he forgot he was fighting and put his hands down ;)

Nice post Cody…

I like Vern as well, John is great too – he's excellent when he refs the Muay Thai stuff.

Kyle does a decent job and lol MAD at the hands down.

Tom and Andy I think are relatively new refs but I think they're coming into their own.

Kyle does a decent job? The guy imo is very high level.

I've only really seen him ref a couple fights… John and Vern are definitely the two that get the most "cage time" in town. It's much harder trying to ascertain some of these things when watching fights through a lens ;)

Edmonton and Winnipeg both have excellent referees.
