cheers, my secrets out now lol I really am that middle aged woman doing MMA rofl!!
Good For you if this what you want to do.
My only recommendations are to remember the ref should be invisible for the majority of the match. I am not saying you were not, I am just saying thats my biggest pet peeve with refs, I have seen those idiot refs that get pretty involved when its not necessary, and it seems they are trying to make the attention themselves and not the fighters.
I seem to remember seeing a femal ref fairly recently at either the affliction fights, UFC, or WEC, cant remember which it was.
Regardless have fun with it.
