Rush has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Herb Dean-petition to get rid of him!

Here are some of the terrible stoppages Herb Dean has done in the past to probably make you angry as heck:

UFC 42: Rich Franklin .vs. Evan Tanner- Stopped way too early. Evan Tanner is a good and respectful man but was sure as heck pissed when that fight was stopped way too early. It only took three punches for Herb to stop the fight on the ground by Tanner. Terrible. But Herb Dean reffed the fight a lot better in the rematch at UFC 53. Maybe because Tanner didn't want to get on the ground and be stopped like Herb Dean always does.

UFC 48: Frank Mir .vs. Tim Sylvia- Sylvias arm snapped in half but some people got pissed. Tim was looking to slam Mir but Herb stopped it in the process. Tim wanted to continue but his arm broke completely in half. You have to give Herb some credit before the fight got out of hand.

Ultimate Fight Night 3: Nate Quarry .vs. Pete Sell- You can thank Herb Dean for almost getting Quarry killed against Franklin. He definitely did not deserve a title shot after this match. It was stopped way too early. Only one punch on the ground and Herb intervened. Sell was undefeated but not after this fight. Due to Herb Dean you will catch Sell delivering ass woopings on the Ultimate Fighter 4.

UFC 61: Tito Ortiz .vs. Ken Shamrock 2- Some people thought it was a good stoppage, others did not. Me, I thought it was bad because Tito had to prove it more than in a minute. Shamrock was eating those elbows but could have eaten a thousand more like he did in the first fight. But no, Herb has to be the worst referee ever.

Vote in the poll if you want Herb Dean fired or not.

better to stop a fight to early than to late. Every refre will get some bad stoppages in his carrere (after all, it is going very quickly in there).
But hearb dean is one of the quicker refrees to stop fights, but I don't think he deserves to be fired...

the man is doing his job and is looking out for the fighters health.. just becasue you disagree with him for doing so is no reason he should be fired... I'd rather a ref be stop a fight early in a questionable manner then wait until the fighter needs to be rushed to the hospital and its too late... I say Herb Good on ya...

Whoever thinks Herb Dean's job is easy should go out and become a referee. Then you'll see how much fun it is!

I don't think being a referee is easy. But look at Big John. He is way better and puts more effort into his job. Maybe he has more experience but still. People don't appreciate matches being stopped early like Herb Dean does. He is the worst referee in the UFC and its pretty obvious.

why because he has concerns about fighters saftey? true he may be a bit cautious as stated and all can most likely agree with that.. but that does not make him bad..

Bwah...I guess it was a mistake to make this poll or I worded it wrong. It should have been titled "Dislike or like Herb Dean" not get him fired or not. Btu Big John is still the best referee ever!
