Whether you’re interested in some fascinating firsthand accounts of the behind the scenes goings on in the early days of the UFC and the origins of some of MMA’s rules and regulations or you simply want to get to know one of the most important MMA figureheads the sport has ever known, you need to pick up a copy of “Big” John McCarthy’s “Let’s Get It On! The Making of MMA and Its Ultimate Referee.”

The biographical account of McCarthy’s life as a son, brother, father, husband, police officer, coach and referee was co-written by acclaimed MMA reporter and the author of Randy Couture‘s book, “Becoming the Natural: My Life In and Out of the Cage,” Loretta Hunt,  and has been lauded by several members of the MMA media as one of 2012′s must-read books for fans of the sport.

Loretta will be our special guest on this week’s episode of The Bum Rush Radio Show on Friday to talk about the book and we’ll have a review of the tome on the site next week.

The pair will begin a book tour starting on September 15 that will span from New York, New Jersey and Los Angeles in the U.S. and Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa in Canada.

Same here, I've notice several deleted posts - mine and others. Fucking bullshit, I'd like to know who in the CP office is so soft?
It was suggested to me that CP is under contract to the UFC and others, so there are some topics that are off limits per the people who write the checks.
Most the other MMA sites do the same, don't know why anyone would think CP is managed from behind the scenes any different.

I will say, this place has the faggy-sissy's at Sherdog beat by mile.

Where can I hear " Bum Rush " ? That's my question . And for the book , will John tell us why he got the " bums rush " from Dana ? Or is that hush hush talk around here ?

I wonder what the title of the book is go....

He is the most recognizable, not the most skilled. Herb Dean is a better referee.
The book might be good though.
