When the Octagon door closes for the UFC 162 main event middleweight championship between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman, the referee in charge will be Herb Dean. The NSAC appointed Dean the role earlier today.
Dean’s last title fight to referee was the UFC 155 headliner in December 2012.
Other officials present will be Adalaide Byrd, Marcos Rosales and Patricia Morse Jarman.
UFC 162 is July 6 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. The prelims air on Facebook and FX, while the main card occurs on pay-per-view.
