After her dominating performance against Amanda Ribas at UFC 257, Marina Rodriguez was quick to clear up the confusion which lead her to believe the fight had finished sooner. Speaking to hardcoremma through an interpreter, the up-and-coming Brazilian explained, "He has to stay on top of the action, I get it, but he got very close.
"He has to be right there, to take charge, I understand this. But when I felt the tip of his penis on my face, I thought surely the fight is over.. right?'
Herb Dean is never far from controversy, but this episode will no doubt add to the embattled official's woes. Can Dean expect fighters to continue after he has touched them with his genitals? So far, the experienced referee has not responded to text messages from hardcoremma.
