In Herb's defense, Frank was throwing knee's from the bottom(To Renzo's body) a lot during that fight. I don't think Herb thought the first knee to the back of the head was intentional, and he definitely knew something was up after Frank hit the second. The guy has his faults, sure, but I don't think he's a bad ref at all. In fact, I think he's an underappreciated ref. Frank vs Renzo wasn't going to go on longer, since Frank was looking for a way out. Blame Frankie for DQ'ing himself.
Herb saw Tim's arm break. I don't think Mazagatti or Yamasaki would've seen that. I'm also coming around to him stopping Ken vs Tito 2. I mean, how many unanswered elbows must Ken take in that fight? If anything, Herb saved Ken a trip to the hospital.
