Josh Rosenthal

Shortly after working Nick Diaz’s promotion War MMA, Josh Rosenthal has been sentenced to 37 months in prison, followed by three years probation and $100 in fees. This all for plea agreement to attempting to sell $10 million dollars worth of marijuana. Without the plea bargain, Rosenthal was facing 10 years in prison, $10 million in fines and five years probation.

If this is your first time hearing about this — the case started back in April 2012 when his Oakland warehouse was raided, revealing over 1350 marijuana plants in his grow-op. Estimated street value of the marijuana: 6 million big ones.

Rosenthal is best known as a regular referee in the UFC rotation, receiving both praise and criticism for his reffing abilities.
