Big John McCarthyWell-known referee “Big” John McCarty will return to the UFC Octagon for the first time in over two-and-a-half years when he oversees bouts at Sunday’s UFC on Versus 2 event in San Diego, California, according to MMA Fighting.

After officiating Roger Huerta vs. Clay Guida at The Ultimate Fighter 6 Finale in December 2007, McCarthy retired to work as an MMA analyst, but resumed his refereeing career in late-2008 and now makes his long-awaited return to the UFC.

It has yet to be determined what bouts McCarty will officiate on the UFC on Versus 2 fight card, which is headlined by rising light heavyweight Jon Jones vs. Vladimir Matyuskenko.
