MMA Referee, Josh Rosenthal, plead guilty last month of owning more than 6 million dollars worth of weed


MMA Referee, Josh Rosenthal, plead guilty last month to co-owning a warehouse containing nearly 6 million dollars worth of marijuana. The government is recommending 37 months in prison (pretty light if you ask me)

Rosenthal is has officiated some of MMA's biggest fights including; Lesnar vs Carwin, Silva vs Velasquez, and Dan Henderson vs Shogun. He is personally one of my most hated referee's for his shocking ability to let fights continue going after they should be stopped. The bloodbath that was Antonio "Big Foot" Silva vs Cain Velasquez should have been stopped much much earlier.

There has been no word from the Commission responsible for licensing Rosenthal. Marijuana has been shown to lower reaction times for individuals. If I was a MMA fighter and had my fight referree'd by Rosenthal, I would sue the living shit out of the commission.

MMA Referee's make $200 to $1,200 per fight they referee.
