That was a perfect punch from Dan, but any chance of a recovery was muted with those bombs to the back of the head. People recover from being rocked like that all the time, Fedor moved his left arm to posture right before the shots to the back of the head. You can't ignore two illegal bombs because someone gets rocked, but I understand it's nearly impossible to call that on the spot. Herb made the right call for Fedors safety, but standing back and looking at the fight, it's tough to live with for Fedor i'm sure.
