First off I don't think anything was stopped too early, but what the hell is going on with some of this reffing.
When I saw Mario Yamasaki in the Ortiz vs Liddell fight I thought, oh shit wheres Big John. Not that I do not like Mario, but why didn't they have the best ref they had in for the main event? Which is also a title fight. And you didn't get the great "Lets get it on!" from Mario. I just think you need Big John for the main event, anyone else agree?
And what the hell goes on in Herb Dean's head? After Andrei kicked Cruz wile he was on the ground Herb tried to stand them up. What was he thinking? The striker violates the rules, so he is going to punish the grappler and stand them up, just doesn't make sense to me.
Herb is a pretty good ref, but whenever I see him I get a little nervous. I always think he is going to mess something up. He seems to do it quite often. Sometimes I think it may be time for him to go.
