I don't care that it was Fedor. I'm not even a big Fan of his. It is a crap way to end a fight no matter who it is.
And I agree with you. He was probably completely out. However it doesn't matter. The shots to the back of the head are illegal, and for a reason, no matter how asleep your opponent appears.
If they never do anything about it, what is to stop fighters from doing it on purpose? Rock em, nail em in the the back of the head. It is a bad precedent.
