Dana White on Herb Dean’s time out during Buentello/Kongo fight

UFC President Dana White pulls the poor refereeing card once again. UFC Ref, Herb Dean mistakingly allowed the doctors to pop Buentello’s finger back in place and continue the fight last night during the Paul Buentello vs. Cheick Kongo televised bout.

Dana White, speaking via Yahoo! Sports, said:

“If he [Buentello] couldn’t continue right there, you can’t come in [and call timeout]. His finger broke. You could see he tried to stay away from the takedown, and his finger just snapped, it wasn’t caught in the glove. It was broke. It should have been a TKO… This sounds insane, but it’s like going in there and popping Duane’s foot back in place and continuing to fight. If that was possible, it’d be the same thing.”
