Herb Dean draws ref duty for UFC 162 main event title fight


In what I'm sure is music to UFC President Dana White's ear, referee Herb Dean has been announced to work the UFC 162 main event title fight between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman. White has had some major issues with Steve Mazzagatti and I'm sure his happy Dean will control the action in the most important fight of the night:

On Friday, NSAC instead assigned the man that White considers the best in the business, as Herb Dean was unanimously approved for the spot.

Adalaide Byrd, Marcos Rosales and Patricia Morse Jarman were chosen as the judges for the July 6 headlining match, which will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Haters need to STFU. Herb is the best ref in the game, when was the last time he made any big mistake in a big fight?Only thing recent was I thought he let the Rockhold-Jardine fight go a bit long, but unless I'm forgetting something else, he's been pretty consistent for years now.Can't say the same about Mazz, Dr. Greenthumb Rosenthal, Yamasaki, Yves, etc.

Anderson is undefeated no matter which ref is in the cage.

Well this sucks, Anderson is a perfect 9-0 when Herb is the ref. Weidman now has zero chance.

Has Herb called it yet, or is it still too early?
