Referee Blake Grice

MMA is quickly becoming one of the most popular sports in the United States. With the popularity increasing and more states sanctioning the sport, the number of events has skyrocketed In the past few years. More events creates the need for more officials, and through the Association of Boxing Commissions (ABC), my classes are designed to educate new and existing referees & judges on the ever evolving role of officiating for mixed martial arts. 

Quality officials must continually educate and evaluate themselves to make sure that they are at the top of their game.  Whether its a local show, or the pay-per view events, officials need to bring the highest level of performance and professionalism each time they step into the cage.  

As a veteran of well over 1000 bouts including the UFC, I still strive to improve, and I hope to help you reach your very best. Check back for updates often, and I hope to see you in the classroom and cage soon.

"I have been promoting fights since June of 2002 and have been requesting Blake Grice as my head referee for each show I've promoted in Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina. He's one of the most dependable, fair and best referees that I've ever had associated with my promotions. He's also worked to get himself the best name in the Southeast that rivals Big John McCarthy with national shows. Each show that I promote I know going into it that as long as he's my referee I'll have fair fights and the safety of the fighters will be taken care of. 

Any promotion that hires him will be pleased. "
