    Herb did the right thing imo... Sure thing, ken wasnt out... but the thing is that he didnt defend himself intelligently (or how its spelled ) and therefor its the right decision to stop the match.

    Check this out the only chance Chuck stands against Wand is Herb Dean. So lets hope he is not the ref. If you seen a Wand fight you will know that he might get rocked , but he recovers instanty so lets just hope that Herb is not in that instant.

    IMO, Shamrock was out, and when Herb came in and broke it up, he woke up. When Herb comes in, Ken begins grabbing at Herb, thinking he is Tito. This is just my opinion however, but it did look to me that Ken was knocked out, his muscles had stiffened, and he wasn't defending because he was out.
    Ken wasn't out by a couple of elbows.lol!Did you see the 1st fight?he took a gazillion elbows and wasn't out.

    I've seen 3 or 4 fights when I've thought Dean stopped the fight too early. However, when I see the replay he's bang on the money EVERY time.

    The problem is if your "favorite" is on the receiving end it's hard to take. When AA went down against Sylvia (2nd fight) Herb had no option as Sylvia was wailing on him & all Arlivski did was block the punches with his chin!

    My first thought on the Shamrock stoppage was too early, but after the replay it was a spot on decision. If Tito was left to continue he would have demolished Shamrock's eye socket & could have been blinded for life. Just to reiterate Shamrock has been doing mma for years. He knows he has to protect himself sensibly & if he doesn't the referee will.

    He's a 42-year-old man & he behaved like a 10-year-old who just got grounded.

    On a side note, the Yamasaki stoppage of Cabbage was also a good decision. Cabbage was getting butched like a stuck pig against Arlovski & if he hadn't got stopped then he may have been in some real serious problems.

    It should only be Steve Mazzagatti and Big John.

    i definitely think herb dean is a great ref, but even a great ref can mess up and he messed up on tito/ken II. he did an awesome stop on mir/sylvia, and i've never had a complaint for him until tito/ken II. personally i think it was a bogus call but i have enough faith in herb that he honestly felt that ken was in serious danger. i'm pretty sure any other ref would have let it go a little longer, but there's no point in arguing it anymore. dean's a great ref. it should be him, big john, and steve mazzagatti for all the fights. mario's a putz and i don't even know the name of that bald skinny prick.
