The title fights scheduled for UFC 213 have their officials.

On Wednesday, the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) set the referees and judges for title bouts between Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko and Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker at its monthly meeting in Las Vegas.

Herb Dean will be the referee for the women’s bantamweight championship fight between Nunes, the titleholder, and challenger Shevchenko. The judges in place for that bout, the UFC 213 main event, are Derek Cleary, Chris Lee and Glenn Trowbridge.

For the co-main event, an interim middleweight title fight between Romero and Whittaker, John McCarthy will be the referee. Jeff Mullen, Junichiro Kamijo and Sal D’Amato will act as the judges.

UFC 213 takes place July 8 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
