— Roy Nelson talked about defeating Kimbo Slice on this week‘s episode of The Ultimate Fighter to USA Today: “First round was 44 punches to the face, and then Herb Dean doesn’t know how to ref, but we’ve seen that before. And then the next round was 22 punches. You could even see me yelling at Herb Dean, ‘Come on, ref.’… But the thing is, there’s a lot of people, there’s a lot of money… So I think it was more that Herb Dean was afraid to lose his job, because there’s a lot of people with a lot of money that can have a lot of influence with his career.”
