Cue the Tony Burton GIF…
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight Ben Nguyen was ground into dust last night (Weds., July 13, 2016) on the main card of the UFC Fight Night 91 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, held inside Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, live on FOX Sports 1 (full results here).
Louis Smolka did the grinding, but referee Herb Dean definitely gets credit for the assist.
In fact, the elbows — as well as the blood — were so prevalent, Nguyen’s corner was forced to launch the towel, to end the savage beating while Dean sat idly by. Naturally, the combat sports community was less than enthused with the officiating duties that night.
That was horrible reffing by Herb Dean. Nguyne’s corner actually threw in the towel. Stoppage late. It reminded me of Weidman vs. Rockhold.
