Chris Weidman on Herb Dean at UFC 194 Loss: ‘He did a good job’

January 25, 2016 9:24 am by Joe JD David

Former champ Chris Weidman gives his point of view on the stoppage that ended his title reign as middleweight champ at UFC 194. The Rockhold camp and Javier Mendez felt that the fight needed to be stopped much sooner.

Weidman sits down with MMA hour to discuss the stoppage, a -quote via MMA Fighting.com-:

“I mean, I never went out. I was still fighting back, so I don’t think they should’ve stopped it. I think Herb Dean did a good job. I understand where people are coming from, I wouldn’t have been upset if they did stop it earlier. I wouldn’t have been complaining. But I’m also not complaining that they kept it going.”

With an ill-advised spinning wheel kick that set off a chain-reaction of transitions and positions that ultimately saw the end to the undefeated Weidman, will the former champ take back the title in a re-match?
