    Round 1

    (1) Grabbing shorts with his left hand.

    (2) Strikes to the back of the head, (3) 12-6 elbows, and (4) grabbing shorts with his left hand.

    (5) Grabbing shorts with his left hand.

    (6) Strikes to the back of the head and (7) 12-6 elbow.

    (8) Grabbing shorts with his left hand.

    Round 2

    (9) Kneeing a downed opponent.

    This couldn't have been anymore flagrant; it's not like they were in a position in which it was difficult for McGregor to assess whether or not Nurmagomedov was a downed opponent.

    (10) Grabbing the cage with his toes.

    (11) Grabbing the cage with his toes.

    And this foul was done right after Dean had already removed McGregor's toes from the cage.

    Round 3

    (12) Groin strike.

    (13) Grabbing shorts with his left hand.

    (14) Hooking fingers into opponent's glove.

    (15) Hooking fingers into opponent's glove and (16) strike to the back of the head.

    This might be one the most obvious signs of Herb Dean's incompetence/corruption: McGregor had hooked his fingers into Nurmagomedov's glove for 24 seconds in plain view of Dean, and not only was a warning not given nor a point deducted from McGregor, Dean actually gave Nurmagomedov a warning for inactivity.

    Round 4

    (17) Grabbing the cage with his right hand.
    [​IMG]

    (18) Grabbing the cage with his toes.
    [​IMG]

    (19) Grabbing the cage with his toes.

    Herb Dean recently explained his rationale for not deducting a single point for any of these fouls, but all he's achieved is make himself look worse:


    What exactly does excitement have to do with a referees job? His job is to protect the fighters and ensure that the rules are being followed. Nurmagomedov wasn't protected from McGregor's fouls nor were the rules being enforced.

    And yet how much did the above 19 fouls affect the outcome?

    One of Dean's many flawed explanations for why he didn't take a point was because he didn't want to reward McGregor with a stand up by calling a pause in the action to deduct a point.

    However, I copied this directly from the Unified Rules of MMA:
    What's hilarious is that Dean has deducted points, without pausing the action, in past fights: he deducted a point from Gabriel Gonzaga in the Randy Couture fight for grabbing the fence in the second round, and did not pause the action (because Couture was in an advantageous position).

    Another example was when John McCarthy deducted a point from Tito Ortiz for grabbing the fence against Rashad Evans at UFC 73; McCarthy didn't pause the action at all and Evans maintained top position.

    Oh and McGregor has already admitted to cheating on Twitter:

    Calm down. Khabib won in convincing fashion, all is okay.
