Veteran referee Herb Dean will be the third man in the cage when Demetrious Johnson attempts to defend his UFC flyweight title for a record fifth consecutive time against heavy underdog Chris Cariaso at UFC 178.

Dean was unanimously selected at Thursday's Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) meeting to oversee the championship contest, which is scheduled to take place September 27, 2014 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV and will headline UFC 178's pay-per-view main card.

Nevada mainstays Sal D'Amoto, Marcos Rosales, and Glenn Trowbridge will judge the bout.
