During UFC Fight Night: Maia vs. LaFlare referee Eduardo Herdy botched two stoppages on the card. During the second blunder, he mistakenly waved off and awarded a fighter a technical submission, when Dober really wasn't in any danger. (Watch the video here). This had the UFC president livid, and he started tweeting about the bad officiating after two straight mistakes:
Now there is a guy who should NEVER ref again!!!!— Dana White (@danawhite) March 22, 2015
Right when the main card kicked off, Herdy was once again assigned at the Pepey fight. Here's White's reaction:
Uh oh!!! Not this guy again #mistakenumber3— Dana White (@danawhite) March 22, 2015
He did properly stop the fairly straight forward triangle choke on that bout, but it didn't stop the UFC president from commenting on it as well:
He got it right the 3rd time!!!!— Dana White (@danawhite) March 22, 2015
White has since said that he would want the Dober vs. Silva bout to be a No Contest, but while he doesn't have control on that, he is rectifying what he can by saying that Dober will still get his win bonus after the referee error.
