The referees and judges have been selected for the two title fights taking place at UFC 175.

Herb Dean will oversee the middleweight title bout between Chris Weidman and Lyoto Machida at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on July 5. That same night, Yves Lavigne will be in charge of the women’s bantamweight title clash between Ronda Rousey and Alexis Davis.

Chris Lee, Marcos Rosales and Glenn Trowbridge will judge Weidman-Machida, while Derek Cleary, Douglas Crosby and Sal D’amato will score Rousey-Davis. Dean and Lavigne will make $1,500 for their work in the main event and co-headliner, while all judges will be paid $1,200 apiece. The selections were revealed during Tuesday’s Nevada Athletic Commission meeting.

With the two title bouts at the top of the bill, UFC 175 is shaping up as one of the year’s most anticipated cards. The lineup also includes a bantamweight bout pitting Urijah Faber against Alex Caceres as well as a heavyweight showdown between Stefan Struve and Matt Mitrione.
