John McCarthy has actually examined Herb Dean’s efficiency at UFC Vegas 19.

In the centerpiece of the card, Dean was the 3rd male in the Octagon for (*19 *) Lewis vsCurtis Blaydes In the very early going, Dean was doing a strong task surveillance the eye jabs. Yet, as Lewis landed the KO strike, “The Black Beast” followed it up with some even more shots. He stated it was Herb Dean’s mistake, yet John McCarthy thinks Dean did every little thing he was meant to.

“When Curtis Blaydes gets hit by Derrick Lewis, yeah he is out. Does Derrick need to hit him again? No, he doesn’t, that’s on him,” John McCarthy stated on his Weighing In podcast. “But, if Blaydes hits the ground as well as by striking the ground it brings him back, as well as (*19 *) Lewis is leaving, Herb is mosting likely to stand there as well as go ‘you should’ ve pursued him.’ (*19 *) did what he was meant to do.

“The problem for Herb in that one, Herb is behind him. He has to move, Derrick is going forward toward Blaydes, Herb is trying to close that gap based upon where he was at when the knockout punch actually landed. Blaydes falls away from him so he has to get in there,” McCarthy proceeded. “Does Derrick Lewis land a couple of extra shots, yeah. Trust me, that time for Herb is going in slow motion, He is trying to get there as fast as he can and it seems like it is taking forever, it is very fast. Derrick Lewis is able to land a lot of shots in one second of time.”

There is no doubt the follow-up shots were not essential. But, as John McCarthy explains, if Blaydes obtains his principles back as he struck the ground, individuals would certainly be slamming Lewis for not ending up the battle.
