The two huge title fights at UFC 196 fights now have regulatory officials put in place.

Herb Dean will be the referee for the lightweight title fight between champion Rafael dos Anjos and Conor McGregor and John McCarthy will take the reffing duties for Holly Holm's women's bantamweight title defense against Miesha Tate.

The positions were selected Wednesday during the Nevada Athletic Commission meeting.

The judges scoring the main event between dos Anjos and McGregor will be Derek Cleary, Sal D'Amato and Junichiro Kamijo. For the co-main event, Chris Lee, Marcos Rosales and Glenn Trowbridge will be giving their scores if the bout between Holm and Tate goes to decision.

UFC 196 will take place March 5 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
