QUICK TWITT | Fighters React Harshly To Herb Dean’s UFC 169 Main Event Mistake

Wow, so, Herb Dean messed up Saturday night, in a pretty bad way, when he halted the action during Urijah’s ‘Thumbs up’ signing.


The twitter-verse instantly caught fire and we are just now getting those flames under control.

Check out some notable reactions to the Faber vs. Barao stoppage:

    I do think Dean could have waited a few more blows before stopping it, but all in all I didn’t see Faber getting out of that position either. He said he grabbed Barao’s leg, but reality is that his arm was stuck in between Barao’s legs. Look at the picture, he’s not holding on or grabbing, it’s stuck like in a crucifix. And with the other hand all he could do was hold it to the side of his face blocking punches and hoping for a miracle or something. That is not intelligently defending, that is basically turtling up and every fight gets stopped when one of the fighters turtles up.

      I call bullshit on this analysis calling that position a turtle up. WTH also calling that arm between the leg a crucifix hold like he couldn’t get his arm out. He was holding Barao’s leg so he couldn’t swing around to a more dominate angle to him and hit him harder than a hammerfist. Some of the shit you see is just crazy.

    I like the responses from Liddell, Hardy, Beltran, Baroni, Kaufman and Maguire. They don’t give a shit. Faber was safe, it was Barao that was pandering to Herby-D to end the fight as he hit Faber’s arm. Ridiculous. If it ain’t the Judges, it’s the Refs.

    @ Ian McCall until you even make it to the wedding, you should stop shooting calls.

    Early stoppage without a question, still don’t believe it would have changed the outcome.

  6. Kevin Arnold says:

    Look if they or anyone thinks they can do better become a ref!

    It’s about damn time to fire some refs ! If it wasn’t for refs, Fedor would have beaten Dan Henderson, Anderson Silva would have beaten Chris Weidman the first time around and every single Steve Mazegatti fight would have the opposite outcome. Fire Herb, fire Steve and fire that big Dan guy or whatever his name is. They can destroy a fighter’s legacy in a snap.
