Both of these guys are one spinning heel kick away from the town of Ronda Rouseyville. As much as we love to hate on Floyd Mayweather Jr., let’s remember that he’s 49-0.

5. Herb Dean Needs Glasses
I don’t care who says it or how they explain it. Referee Herb Dean should have stopped the Chris Weidman vs. Luke Rockhold fight in the third round. Weidman took a wicked beating, the kind that is bad for the UFC’s reputation. Any fool could see Weidman was out. Is the threshold for stopping a fight now total unconsciousness?
