Sean O’Malley beat Kris Moutinho from pillar to post and appeared to be well on his way to a lopsided decision win at UFC 264. Then referee Herb Dean interrupted the carnage, and the internet erupted.

Fighters gave Moutinho high praise and let Dean have it for waving off the fight at 4:33 of the third and final round of the pay-per-view opener at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. O’Malley landed 230 significant strikes to Moutinho’s 70, per UFC stats, but his colleagues were largely unhappy with the result.

Here’s how fighters reacted to the fight at UFC 264.
