    It was the end of the round. We've seen fighters with good cardio recover from beatings like that. Herb was right to not stop the fight. Also where was Shahbazyan's corner? They could've stopped it. They know way better than Herb Dean what his limitations are.

    Great reffing and good stoppage. Dean let the fight go on to see if Shahbazyan got anything left. When Brunson took him down with ease and started beating on him, Dean immediately stopped it to avoid unnecessary damage.

    The stoppage was okay... but the fact he waved the fight off in the end of the first round and let it continue... was shit

    People forget the corner is meant to protect their fighter.

    Quit blaming the ref.

    How many times do we see corners stop fights in mma??

    The guy wasnt defending himself and was done, count that with the damage he took before and it could have been stopped right there.
    He was 'saved' by the bell

    I agree it was difficult to stop it at the end of second. Bruson also took a break and stopped trying to finish. If the round was another 10 seconds long it probably ends but easy to justify letting it go to end of round.

    Yes it is also the ref's job. However the ref is about immediate damage and if the fighter can reasonably physically continue he should. Herb also did call for the doctor to ensure he could medically continue.

    However the corner can make the call there is to much damage even though he the fighter can physically continue.

    I think the corner should be the one who calls it between rounds and the ref during the fight.

    Nope
    They are there to give the fighter water, stool and a false sense of security and collect a paycheck

    Herb Dean is the best in the business.

    I praise herb every night. It's part of Dudism, the ways of the Dude.

    I believe they're referring to the main event. Although the first gent meant at the end of the 2nd round, from what I gather.

    Dan Hardy living rent-free in Herb's head is the reason that was stopped then.
