I dont have a prb with Herb. Plus i like his name :laugh:
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..Rush said: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.
I agree Big john is an excellent Ref.. one of the better ones around... the poll would be better if you had it as agree or disagree with his callRush said: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!
actually the fight should be stopped just before that point.. no one wants to see a fighters caerer get ended.. but its an extremely hard call to make as every fighter cna withstand more then a different fighter.. so its really the ref best judgementaubdoggy said:I was waiting for it to be a witch hunt, but some good empirical evidence was presented. Not enough to get him fired by any means, but next time maybe we get Mazzagata, or the real man BIG John doing a bout I just paid 40 bucks to see. Its fighting, Id rather see a beat down then a puss stoppage for 40 bucks. Maybe its the sadist in me. Even Dana acknowledged it was a questionable stoppage. Next time he'd get it right. And the Mir Sylvia fight is a bad example. Anytime a fighter has to have screws inserted to fix a submission break is a good indicator of a proper stoppage.
As a MMA fan you may not agree with some of the decisions Herb Dean made! Herb Dean is not there to please the fans, that's the fighters job. His job is to oversee the match with the fighters best interest in mind.steelshadow said:I agree with RUSH. Herb Dean IS the worst ref in UCF. I will even go one farther and say that he is the worst ref in all of the MMA world. He needs to get a job reffing for Vince McMann, at least then it would fit his peaceful and hollywood reffing style! Give him a script and put him in WWE, he would fit much better there.
nobody was robbed...and I pay my 40 bucks to watch good fights, whether they are tkos in 15 seconds or decision i dont care, but if there is a bad fight i dont blame the ref but the fightersRush said:Well some people pay 40 bucks to see a big knockout or a gruesome fight the way John McCarthy stops them not the way Herb Dean stops them in two seconds. Plus some of us have a list of favourite fighters, we don't like our favourite fighters being stopped shortly and robbed.
