UFC on Fuel |Dave Herman Thinks It Was An Early Stoppage But Places Blame On Himself


“I do [think it was stopped early] but it was my fault. He said to move but I moved just a hair second too late, it was definitely my fault… I felt pretty good accept for getting punched in the eye. I’m obviously not happy with my performance but overall it was a good experience and I look forward to improving.”

During the UFC on FUEL TV post-fight show, UFC heavyweight fighter Dave Herman took to the microphone and expressed his post-fight thoughts.

He looked great in the opening of the bout but during the second round Stefan Struve took over and eventually got the fight to the ground with a solid uppercut, took mount position and pounded Herman out until the referee halted the action.

It looked like it was an early stoppage to me too, but not a bad call, Herman wasn’t getting out of that position and there was still a decent amount of time on the clock.

Anyone think otherwise? Speak up Penn Nation let’s hear your thoughts.

  1. Nick says:

    The stoppage was justified. He was taking decent damage. I wouldn’t complain if they didn’t. I can understand why it was stopped as well.

  2. maybe if he didnt think bjj was useless he would know how to get out of being mounted

    • cole says:

      I don’t call squirming and putting both hands on your ears and getting punched about 25 times with no change in your defense defending yourself….

      • Steve Jones says:

        “getting punched about 25 times”

        Which fight were you watching? Idiot.

        Two words: Kim Winslow.

        Need I say more? Of COURSE it was an early stoppage – it wasn’t even remotely justified – and Kim Winslow, as usual, is to blame. Fucking useless woman. Why is a WOMAN refereeing men’s matches?

  3. Ninja Oreo+Dollop says:

    He was defending himself just not the way a ground fighter does.
