    We're still talking about this? There have been many stoppages significantly worse than that.

    Virtually no one agrees with the stoppage other than Herb Dean himself and the dumbest MMA fans around.

    But it wasn’t an egregious stoppage that caused the fighter to take a ton of extra punishment like yan/aldo

    we get stoppages like this all the time - didn’t effect the outcome nor did it cause any significant damage

    No. Not even close. That would be Mazzagatti. That fool was the worst.

    It wasn't a good job by Herb Dean, but he's still one of the top refs, and even the best ones make mistakes. Remember when Roy Nelson was so upset at Big John for stopping the fight late against big foot that he kicked Big John?

    The worst stoppage ever was when the ref let Joe Warren take 30+ extra power shots from Pat Curran. I guess the ref really wanted to see if Warren could live up to his nickname 'baddest man on the planet'

    If Mario the Just Bleed savage and enforcer said it’s too late, it was too late.

    It was not the worst stoppage in the world, which only reaffirms how bad the state of reffing in MMA actually is. When the fighter who knocked the guy out has time to slowly walk over and pause hoping it gets stopped, commentators have a chance to yell to stop the fight and I'm yelling at my TV wondering what the fuck is going on, it's egregious. That should never happen.

    Thankfully it was Trinaldo in there and he showed restraint because if that had been someone like Masvidal, Stephens or Hendo, we'd be talking about one of the worst stoppages in MMA history. That's how out of position and unaware Dean was of what was happening. People talk about this like it's no big deal while failing to realize it only wasn't that bad because of Trinaldo.

    The fact that we get stoppages like this all the time just confirms the problem. People with your mindset never admit that there's an issue until something tragic happens. Fighters like Hardy, Felder and Cormier all have the foresight to not want to see someone die before changes are made. And oh yeah, Herbert himself said he respected and admired Hardy for saying what he did. You know, he's the guy who was actually affected by this and not just another keyboard warrior sitting on his couch saying we've seen worse so it doesn't actually matter.

    You sound like a real badass.

    reffing and judging in mma needs improvement

    I just don’t see the outrage about this one particular stoppage and the non stop whining about it

    there are worse stoppages on the regular

    Sure, but that doesn't make this one okay.
