Officials have been assigned by the New York State Athletic Commission to judge and referee the bouts at UFC 223 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on April 7.

NYSAC regulates and sanctions mixed martial arts in the state. According to an email Tuesday from NYSAC, referees for the 13 scheduled bouts are:

Dan Miragliotta

Todd Anderson

Keith Peterson

Rob Hinds

Judging the fights octagon-side will be:

Sal D’Amato

David Bruce

Glenn Trowbridge

David Tirelli

Christopher Lee

Derek Cleary

UFC 223 is the seventh event by the promotion in New York since the state legalized the sport in March 2016.

Anderson drew some criticism in the main event when Germaine de Randamie hit Holly Holm with strikes after the bell in two consecutive rounds at UFC 208 in Brooklyn in February 2017. Anderson has refereed the six previous UFC cards in New York, as well as Bellator 180 at the Garden and World Series of Fighting at The Theater at MSG, the Commission said.

D’Amato and Cleary also were judges for UFC 208.
