    I honestly think Herb is one of the worst refs there is. Hesitation, early stoppages - he has it all.


    also cant watch in my country, cliffs?

    He did a good job avoiding Cormier's illegal strikes at the end.

    Dana says that Herb did a horrible job in the fifth round because he let Jones and DC virtually remain in a clinch up against the fence for the entire round.

    He probably could have separated them once or twice to get the action moving.

    I don't know what the complaints are?

    Getting clipped by Cormier whilst Dana hoping he'd get KTFO?

    Anyone?

    I can't watch but I thought that Herb should've stopped that shit clinch stalling on the 5th. I mean, literally the entire round was on the clinch

    I am usually critical of Herb and think he is the most overrated ref but I thought he did a fine job this time.

    I think his rep is built largely off Dana and Rogan saying he's great.

    All he said was "they went at it, the first bell to the fourth bell. Herb Dean, you know I was talking about him, he is my favorite referee. I think he did a horrible job in the fifth round. He let them clinch literally for five minutes but other than that it was an amazing fight."

    I don't like when the ref stand people up or seperate them in the clinch at all so I'm fine with it.

    Don't see the issue. As long as DC kept coming forward the fight was always going to end up in the clinch, and DC had to keep coming forward to have a chance.

    He was just referring to the fifth round, says he allowed them to clinch for 5 minutes. That was his only complaint.
