Submission Of The Week

In this weeks edition of Submission of the week, we’re going to bring it all the way back to UFC 48: Payback. The fight that we’re going to be showing you is Frank Mir vs Tim Sylvia. Usually I’d talk about the fighters and how the submission came about, but today I’m going to talk about the referee – Herb Dean.

I think that most people who are MMA fans such as myself are highly critical on referees and sometimes, they deserve it. They can call a fight to early or to late, or even simply call it wrong. However, I’m not sure if the referees get as much praise when they make the right decisions. Herb Dean is arguably one of the best referees in the MMA now. Most would say that the only referees that are on the same calibre or are even better than Herb Dean are Big John Mcarthy and possibly Mario Yamasaki. However, I think MMA fans would agree that he is part of the small, but elite group of quality referees in MMA today.

To further prove this point, take a look at this video…
