    He clearly wasn't out judging by how quickly he got up after he was released, but the question is.. was he getting out of that choke? I'm not too sure..

      Herb Dean is the best. He can do no wrong in my book.

        INTERESTING. Herb can hear the announcers as he is trying to call the fight.

          You’d think the easiest way to sort all this out would b with a rematch but Askrens already said he’d not run it bk??

            Herb Dean always makes the right call. He knows fighting and knows when a fighter can’t fight back. Great ref.

              My only thing with the choke was when herb went for robbies arm to test it if he was out robbie didnt let his hand drop so thats the only reason i thought it was a bad stop

                Robbie was grabbing Ben's head/ hair.. and LET GO so his hand obviously fucking dropped, Herb then did his usual fuck up and didn't even bother to look at Robbie's CONSTANT MOVING ARM... That's a pretty big fuck up

                        Herb dean might need to think about retirement. He's becoming the king of early stoppages.

                          That’s cool, show it in your thumbnail and then talk for 15 minutes about and never Fkin show it 👍

                            Good stoppage. Period, arm went limp, everybody can see that and that is the moment the ref jumps in. You can't do slow mow after fight and decide the guy was okay after arm went limp...

                              All i'm saying is I hated seeing this dude on the UFC games for this exact reason.

                                Herb Dean is the man. He did the best he could in a difficult situation. I would love to see Robbie and Ben run it back though.

                                    Looking at the footage again, it appears that Lawler may have passed out and then regained consciousness upon the stoppage and release. To be honest, whether conscious or not, Herb made the right call.

                                      He went limp. Plain and simple. Robbie, IF he somehow managed to not go out, was not defending, was in worse position. Right call

                                        Terrible stoppage from herb dean.
                                        Just glad Ben askren got KO'd by masvidal.

                                          I did a similar bulldog choke on my brother. Only it was more from the front and side because he had me on my back standing over me. I couldn't break his neck but it stopped him from punching the crap out of me. He got up and said "submissions are for pussys". #zekesucks

                                            His arm looked limp when i watched it live at first
                                            This stoppage sucks for the fans, but huge respect to herb

                                              He doesnt need to defend the decision. He made the right call at the time to protect the fighter end of.

                                                A ref might be influenced by a commentator yelling, "HE'S OUT! HE'S OUT!" from across the cage.

                                                  Herb wasn't in the best position to see under Askren and check if Robby had a thumbs up.

                                                        Why does a limp arm indicate they’re good to keep fighting.

                                                          I'd have to say between Big John and Herb... you have the two best ref's in the game. i wouldn't question either of these men. they have a tough job for sure.

Every ref wants to cover up their bad calls by "oh we have to protect the fighters" well then don't let them fight in the first place, but if dudes are gonna fight let them fight. Get out of here with that Jay Nady excuse.

                                                                      • Johnathan Andrus

Give lawler some freakinn credit and respect for how skilled he has become over his long career. No way in hell he gets put out by a school yard bully choke. Seriously.

                                                                        • Me Moi

He went limp so he'd ease up but it backfired. Herb is an A class ref. Best in this buisiness. Better than Big John McCarthy. The best.

The fact that after a bit of in the moment anger he was upset, he then told Herb Dean that he understood why he stopped it and it's all good, shows that Robbie respects Herb in that position and if he felt he was in danger, he made the right call. Period.
