UFC Referee Herb Dean Gets Blasted By Social Media After Not Stopping Fight Following Obvious KO

MMA fans are not pleased with veteran referee Herb Dean.

During tonight’s UFC Fight Island card, Dean had a momentarily lapse in judgement when he didn’t stop the fight despite the fact that Francisco Trinaldo had clearly knocked out Jai Herbert.

In the video, you can see Trinaldo hesitates and waits for Dean to call the fight before punching a downed Herbert a few more times so that the ref could finally step in.

Dean was immediately confronted by a disgusted UFC announcer Dan Hardy at cageside.

MMA fans went on to blast Dean on Twitter.
