In a hearing held on Monday by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Executive Director Keith Kizer suggested referees Herb Dean, Mario Yamasaki and Yves Lavigne for the night’s duties.
Upon Kizer’s suggestion, Yamasaki was selected as the referee for the main event between Alistair Overeem and Brock Lesnar.
In addition to the referees, the judges that will score the fights on Dec 30 will be Adalaide Byrd, Patricia Morse-Jarman, Glenn Trowbridge, Tony Weeks, Doug Crosby and Sal D’Amato.
For the Overeem vs. Lesnar match-up the three judges approved were Jarman, Trowbridge and Crosby.
