Fox Sports has nothing to do with officials and how they call the action inside the Octagon, but they will offer fans the same view the referees see on Saturday night.
In a press release Wednesday, Fox announced they are putting the Ref Cam into play for Saturday night’s UFC on Fox: Shogun vs. Vera event from Los Angeles. The camera will be placed on the shirt of the referee, offering fans another view of the fight.
Fox has used such innovative devices in baseball and NASCAR in the forms of the Diamond Cam, Catcher Cam and Gopher Cam. The Ref Cam was used earlier this year in a boxing match between Amir Kahn and Danny Garcia.
