Bull. I tivo-ed it and replay-ed it many times. The first thing that comes outta his(Randy's) mouth as the other announcer(Goldberg) is commenting is..."I'm not sure why Herb stepped in that early."

Then, all I can figure is that Randy hears something in his earpiece that changes his mind for him...Kinda funny really.

Yeah, then we might as well be watching amateur boxing with the head gear and everything.

My prediction is UFC 62: Crybaby Carnage I
Daniel(Limpd**k) Abaddi vs. Herb "The Jellyfish" Dean
Fight ends with both fighters screaming and crying on the mat. First ever draw before punches are even thrown.

I'm gonna have to say that was a good stoppage, although I'm not happy about it, it was a good stoppage, if Tito kept driving those elbows into Kens face theres no telling what could have happened....I think Herb stopped it right on time, and early enough so that they are ready to fight again at 62 hahaha

Actually, what would have been best is if Dana White was gonna "surprise" us with the firing of Herb and announced that he was gonna make them fight again right there on the spot with Big John in there.

Herb is a good ref who has fought mma before. He knows what he is doing and did the right thing. Being how herb dean has wins this is rediculous.

I thought seven unanswered elbows was a legitimate reason for a stoppage, though I suppose 12-15 would've been more convincing.

Dean did his job well. If the UFC wants to gain legitimacy as a sport, it can't let the hype around fights dictate how the refs operate.
