TJ De Santis and Jeff Sherwood returned to the Sherdog Radio
Network for another edition of “Beatdown.” Joining them on
Wednesday’s show was UFC featherweight Dennis
Bermudez and referee Herb Dean.
“The Ultimate Fighter” season 14 finalist Dennis
Bermudez found himself in a fight last Saturday night. After a
close second round with Matt Grice
Bermudez wasn’t sure he was going to get the nod if the bout went
the full 15 minutes. The featherweight threw all caution aside and
nearly defeated Grice by stoppage. The judges rewarded his effort
with a split-decision nod. UFC President Dana White rewarded him
with an extra $50,000 bonus check for “fight of the night.”
Bermudez joined “Beatdown” to talk about the bout, if he felt he
deserved the nod, and how being a UFC fighter still seems
Dean was the third man in the cage for the Bermudez-Grice
match. The veteran MMA official joined De Santis and Sherwood to
chat about his decision to allow Grice to continue despite being
seriously rocked in the final round. Dean talks about the decision
process in those situations, what he does to be as consistent as
possible and why he allowed Grice to continue when he didn’t allow
Koscheck to fight on later in the evening. Dean also chats
about his upcoming seminars this spring.
