It turns out that Travis Browne was not the only person to suffer an injury in the main event of UFC on FOX 11 last Saturday in Orlando, Florida. As the most notable referee in the sport, “Big” John McCarthy had suffered an injury in blowing out his left knee reffing the fight between the two heavyweights. No word on the severity of the injury, or how and when the injury happened, but as of now Big John is recovering at home recovering after having surgery on his knee. As of now the best referee in the business will be sidelined for the foreseeable future.
McCarthy tweeted out a picture of his left knee post-surgery Friday evening:
