MMA fans have jokingly slammed Herb Dean for hitting Dustin Poirier with a "People's Elbow" after he was knocked out by Justin Gaethje.
Fan favourite Poirier was KO'd by a stunning head kick in the second round of the battle of former interim lightweight champions, which headlined UFC 291 in Salt Lake City.
The Diamond collapsed to the canvas after the kick wrapped around the side and back of his head.
Gaethje, 34, closed the show with a big hammerfist before ref Dean slid in and waved off the contest.
Veteran official Dean, however, accidentally landed on a fallen Poirier as he jumped in to stop Gaethje from landing more unnecessary blows.
And viewers likened it to the "People's Elbow" – the iconic finisher of WWE legend The Rock.
One watcher tweeted: "People’s Elbow by Herb Dean."
Another said: "Herb Dean hit the people's elbow on Dustin Poirier."
And another said: "Herb Dean hit Porier with the people's elbow"
One remarked: "Bro!! Herb Dean dropped the people’s elbow on Poirier."
