Derrick Lewis Blames Herb Dean for Jalin Turner’s UFC 300 Loss to Renato 'Moicano'

UFC
May 9, 2024
Derrick Lewis has a different take on the walkoff knockout that wasn’t for Jalin Turner at UFC 300.

Turner took on Renato Carneiro on at UFC 300 on April 13. A sizeable favorite going into the bout, Turner dropped Moicano with a left hook in the closing seconds of the opening frame. However, Turner bizarrely chose to walk away, although referee Herb Dean hadn’t stopped the fight. “Moicano” was back up on his feet in seconds and came from behind to finish “The Tarantula” in the second round.

Lewis, who hadn’t tweeted since February 2022, opted to weigh in on Turner vs. Moicano after the fight, declaring it “Herb Dean fault.” While many praised Dean for allowing “Money” the opportunity to recover, Lewis believes otherwise. Explaining his comments in a recent interview, “The Black Beast” said that the fight should have been stopped when Moicano got dropped.

“I was watching the fight and Herb should have stopped the fight. It was one of the fights that the guy almost got knocked out but the other guy walked away," Lewis told Shakiel Mahjouri Shakiel Mahjouri. "He walked away, then the guy ended up losing… Herb didn’t stop the fight, he didn’t stop the fight. He was supposed to stop the fight. Because the guy got rocked and he was out of it, and the guy recovered because Herb didn’t stop the fight.”

Lewis is scheduled to headline UFC on ESPN 56 against Rodrigo Nascimento on Saturday at the Enterprise Center in St. Louis, Missouri. The feared knockout artist is 1-4 in his last five and coming off a lopsided decision loss against Jailton Almeida.
