    If Cruz comes back and is able to beat Barao, Urijah would surely see a title shot after some wins. And that would really be Faber's last shot. That's a big if though.

    similar to JDS as well.

Even if it meant him moving to a position that was worse, say on his back, it would have told the ref that he was still in it. A thumbs up? Maybe for a submission, when there isn't much else you can do without getting choked or tapped, but when you're getting hit, from watching today's MMA, you better move if you don't want it stopped.
    If it was a fight on the undercard I'd maybe agree but this was a title fight. Surely giving a thumbs up shows intelligence. Its an "I'm ok Ref" gesture. Herb Dean is the best though so he obviously didn't see it. And Barao looked like a beast as always

    edit: a limp body?!!? really so you want the standard of stopping a fight to be a limp body??
    I don't think those punches to the side of the head would have finished Uriah, he was blocking them, and was grabbing a leg. If it got back to the feet, then yes, it was only a matter of time. I just think a veteran like Uriah deserves the benefit of the doubt. Not to take anything away from Barao, he did great. I know Herb must follow the rules but he must be allowed the leeway to exercise some professional judgement here. I think he judged wrong this time.

    Oh well, sucks for Faber but he got punched into the situation in the first place so whatever.
