Judges at UFC 131 will have video monitors at their disposal come fight time.

Sherdog.com on Wednesday confirmed that the UFC’s request for the cageside judging aide has been approved by the Vancouver Athletic Commission.

“Anything we can do to give the judges another tool is great,” Marc Ratner, UFC vice president of regulatory affairs, told Sherdog.com “We’re very excited about it.”

The news comes on the heels of the UFC’s request that the Nevada State Athletic Commission provide judges with video monitors at UFC 130 on May 28. The jury is still out on that topic, however, as the request will be brought up at the next meeting of the NSAC in the coming weeks.

UFC 131 will be headlined by a heavyweight No. 1 contender bout between “Ultimate Fighter” Season 13 coaches Brock Lesnar and Junior dos Santos. The event, which goes down June 11 at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, will also feature Shane Carwin’s Octagon return, as the former title challenger locks up with Norse heavyweight Jon Olav Einemo. Former two-time lightweight title contender Kenny Florian will also appear on the card in featherweight debut against Diego Nunes.
