    Let's Kimbo eat elbows for 3 minutes straight with no attempts to better his position and calls the fight because someone was rocked and ate two punches and was still on his feet defending and throwing punches back.

    He let Bisping beat the fucking snot out of some guy who was just curled up in a ball wishing his beating would stop.

    Then he stops the Vera Werdum fight when Vera is actively trying to block and avoid shots, with 15 seconds left, bettered his position by releasing a trapped arm, was only in "trouble" for 10 seconds or so, and could have easily rolled over if he was in danger.


    Worst fucking ref ever, he needs to hop back into his 1980's corvette and head back to Gold's Gym and never ref an mma fight again.

    the reffing was HORRIBLE tonight. Just shit. Vera got robbed, and marquadt should have won his fight too. That elbow was totally fine, the knee though, not so much.

    I like dhow Herb took control of the situation after the knee. Too many refs let the doctor and the fighters dictate whats going on.

    I let out a big "oh fuck" when I saw who was reffing the Vera/Werdum fight.

    he need to go back to the jersey shore, get a new spray on tan and quit reffing. every stoppage he had tonight was shitty in one way or another and he basically ruined the event for me with vera's stoppage.

    About the Marquardt elbow. I think it was legit, Rogan complained and then contradicted his complaint with the explanation of the rules. He said if you head headphones on then anything behind anywhere on the headphones would be and illegal elbow, so that would of made that elbow illegal.

    So which is it?

    His reffing is inconsistant at best.

    when rogan was talking about headphones it wasnt him trying to contradict himself, he was just trying to help goldie understand :dunno:
    He didnt contradict himself, in the interview with nate he agrees again that it was a legit elbow.

    I think he meant like big earphones so anything behind the ear. When you see the replay they are in the temple/cheek/ear area as he turns his head and I am guessing Rogan got to see the strikes closer. In the spur of the moment things can look different. I think there should be allowed a replay call or something, kinda like other sports. Shitty calls are always going to happen, but Herb Dean in my opinion is the best ref out there since Big John's departure.

    Wrong. That illegal knee clearly fucked up Thales and he wasn't the same since. I'd hate to see a fighter lose because he "NEVER BACKS DOWN ( :ugh: /optimax) " and doesn't quit. The second point deduction was wrong, but even without it, Nate still lost that fight.

    Without it, it's either a draw or a minority decision for Nate
