Morning Report: Aljamain Sterling believes Herb Dean made the ‘perfect stop’ in Alexander Volkov’s match against Jairzinho Rozenstruik

Aljamain Sterling thinks Herb Dean got it right.

At the main event of UFC Vegas 56, Alexander Volkov scored an early TKO victory over Jairzinho Rozenstruik, defeating him in 2:12; However, the result was not without controversy. Although Rosenstruck was clearly hurt by Volkov’s blows early on, when referee Herb Dean waived the bout, Big Boy was on his feet and immediately protested the stoppage. But bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling thinks Dean is making the right call.

As long as this fight went on, it was fun,” Sterling said on his YouTube channel. Rozenstruik momentarily, and tried to go for the kill, was caught with his right hand and then caught with a hard blow against the cage. I felt, from what I watched, that he was twice lame, and when you do, even standing, if he is lame, the fight seems to be over Because there seems to be a huge disconnect between mind and body and you’re just confused and you weren’t there to respond. So it looks like you’re about to be in more trouble. Rosenstreck recovered pretty quickly, but when you come back and watch the stop, I don’t think it was a bad pause. I think things will turn up. Only bad because Volkov – in that split second where [Rozenstruik] He must recover when the referee stops the fight, if the referee does not do so, Volkov remains on him, and drops a few more shots, and this may be a worse end than it already was.”

Unsurprisingly, Volkov agrees with Sterling, saying in his post-fight press conference that he was “ready to get rid of him and carry on with my work” but that Dean saved Rosenstreck from further damage. And for Sterling, that gets to the heart of the stop: Rosenstrick was rough and recovered quickly, but the referee’s job is to save him from himself, and Stirling believes Dean did.

“It’s good that Rosenstruck has been able to recover so quickly,” said Stirling. “That means something, that he was in good shape and I would like to believe, because when you recover quickly from a hard shot, it shows that you are in good shape… but I just think there’s a very fine line between the reference that allows you to live to fight another day and let You are so punished that you probably won’t be able to fight for another day, because the shots and the damage you do will be a lot worse when you piled in. So I think the referee made a good judicial move, he jumped when he saw him limp twice, gave him a chance and it was just one of those things where he got caught Him in the cage against a much larger man.

Volkov is 6’7. it’s an animal. Rozenstruik is 6’2″, these are big boys, but when they stood next to each other, it was like, ‘Damn, this looks like big brother and younger brother right now. “Volkov is just a big human, so when that guy hits you, I can only imagine what that looks like. I don’t want to imagine how that feels…but yeah, I think that was a perfect stop.”
