It's one of the most recognizable and reliable routines in all of MMA. "Big" John McCarthy stands in the center of the Octagon. He turns to one fighter. "Are you ready?" He turns to the other one. "Are you ready." A pause. "Let's get it on!" In part 3 of this FIGHT! Life series, "Big" John reveals the origins of his iconic catchphrase, and sets the record straight about whether he stole the line from boxing ref Mills Lane. Produced and directed by Matthew Ross. Camera: Rick Lee. Assistant Camera: Diego Helguero and Anthony Williams. Edit: Ashley Cahill and Ryan Jackson-Healy. Music: Jacques Brautbar.
