Longtime MMA referee Herb Dean had a rough start to tonight’s UFC 257 PPV.
During the first fight of the PPV between Amanda Ribas And Marina Rodriguez, Dean bizarrely hesitated on whether or not to stop the fight after Rodriguez delivered some big blows on Ribas which led to some confusion inside the Octagon.
OH MY GOODNESS! 🤯

Rogriguez would go on to finish off Ribas seconds later but fans weren’t happy with Dean’s indecision during the fight.
Herb Dean is the worst referee in the sport.

Herb Dean finding new and exciting ways to make refereeing mistakes.

I like Herb Dean, but his indecision when it comes to stopping fights is something that’s getting a bit out of hand. #UFC257
