Mike Pyle pummeled TJ Waldburger for a good minute after landing big elbows for the TKO in round 3 at UFC 170. Referee Herb Dean took his sweet time to call the fight at 4:03 of the 3rd round. Announcer Joe Rogan was quick to call the fight (as he has done many times), and couldn’t understand why the sight wasn’t called earlier.
