Michael Rapaport just got counted out by UFC ref Herb Dean ... who says the actor should stay in his lane when talking MMA ... and not tell the veteran ref how to do a job Rapaport knows nothing about.
Herb Dean is a great guy. Though I feel bad that Rousey lost. Dean did the right thing to stop the fight. Rousey was taking a lot of hits and it's obvious that if the fight continued she'll probably get serious or permanent injuries that may affect her for the rest of her life.
This ref has been doing this job for a long time and I'm sure he knows if the fight has to be stopped. I know that some fights were stopped prematurely even if a fighter can still fight. But Nunes were clearly destroying Ronda with her punches.
Exactly! Ronda was not defending herself and was kind of getting thrown around with those punches, definitely the right decision.
Herb did a good job reffing and calling out Rapaport, he's been in the octagon an awful lot & knows what he's doing.
Herb has made some controversial decisions in the past but this was a good call. I mean watching Ronda actually get knocked cold onto the mat could have been cool too, but he had to protect her
