    I don't see it as a massive conflict of interest, as you can be a non biased commentator (IMO) but I can see how it may be portrayed as a huge conflict.

    I think he's said he's not closed the door on reffing, but now his focus is on Bellator and commentary. All his tweets strongly confirm he's quit reffing, without actually saying it.

    If he's reffing a guy who Bellator are trying to sign........seems really suspect to me, he could easily favour said fighter, even if not trying to. If anyone is a part of any organisation, they should not be able to ref or judge any more IMO.

    I mean, he's reffing two fighters.. so should both fighters not be signed to Bellator? Wouldn't be fair on them, no bias there imo.

    If you are a ref or a judge, you should 100% not be a member of the company, or a company, putting on fights.......you should be completely impartial.

    A ref or judge isn't employed by the organization though and his commentating gig is completely separate.....I just don't see how commentating would lend to any bias while officiating

    No a ref or judge is not, and the reason is because it would be a conflict of interest. It's obviously not something that is easily conflicting.......but where there is any small chance of conflict, which there is, it should be eliminated completely. It's all moot anyway, cos he's quit reffing.

    I think it's a long reach to where you're trying to go with the conflict of interest........
