Herb Dean on Askren-Lawler Stoppage: "I Can't Think of What Else I Should've Done"

Famed mixed martial arts referee Herb Dean was the third man in the cage in the fight between Ben Askren and Robbie Lawler at UFC 235. Askren won by a controversial bulldog choke submission after Dean called the fight when he saw Lawler drop his arm, thinking he went unconscious.
