Herb Dean to Joe Rogan on Frank Mir Breaking Tim Sylvia's Arm: 'You Saved Me' From Losing My Job

MMA referee Herb Dean joined Joe Rogan on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast to discuss a variety of topics.

Dean was the third man in the Octagon when Tim Sylvia attempted to defend his UFC heavyweight title against Frank Mir at UFC 48, where Mir famously broke Sylvia's arm in the first round to claim the belt.

Dean explains the confusion in the crowd after stopping the fight, how Joe Rogan 'saved' Dean's career after pointing out the arm break during the broadcast, and what Sylvia's reaction was to the fight.
