White was very happy with Dean's officiating last night...
Dana White spoke following UFC Fight Night 40 about referee Herb Dean's work in the main event and more. Check out the highlights:
On Dean letting the fight play out instead of stopping it too early: "It's really tough not to respect what he did here tonight. Thank God Herb Dean was reffing that fight. A lot of other guys might have blown that fight. Herb Dean, again, does such a great job."
ON Dean: "He gives guys an opportunity to fight. He lets the fight happen. He doesn't get in the way. He's not a menace to the fight...He is, by far and away, the best referee in the business. He's a guy who trains. He's a guy who actually does it and knows what's going on when it's happening. When we have a big fight and everything is on the line, I love when I see that guy standing in there."
