no doubt, I just think it was a puncher's chance. And that wasn't proving very fruitful before the beatdown.

I just think a lot of "fedor" fans will say "oh fedor would've beat the gassed silva" I'm not a fedor fan or hater, and I'm just calling it like I see it.

Fedor never gave up and I think many would have. I guess you could say he showed some skill not getting submitted, but Silva did seem to mount him pretty easy. That was a big size differential to overcome though. I think it could have been stopped but IMO the ref made the right call to let it go on, Fedor was actively trying to protect himself. Trying being the key word there.

I am a fedor fan , but if a fighter is not down there not out. Silva proved that to me in his fight vs sonnen.

FEDOR LOST we accept it "DAWG", to say someone has no heart especially when they have the option to tap, is a bit silly really mate and always easier to say from outside the cage.
Silva had a good fight and it was a justified stoppage but FEDOR should go down as a legend for what he's done for the sport.

Fedor fought as valiantly as he could. Tough loss, but tell me WHO could have taken that much punishment and still got up. I'll tell right now 99% of the fighters would have gotten TKOed or submitted right there with a 280lbs on top pounding away with hammer fists.

Big Foot is just too big. Sad day...but it was nice to see him give that much respects to "The Emperor."

All reigns must come to an end...

I was sad to see Fedor lose, it's never nice seeing a legend of the sport fading away

Anyone see this picture by the way?


Classy act from Barnett

I was honestly kind of scared thinking of a guy that big on top of me with his hand on my throat throwing blows to my face. I think most other fighters would have wanted a way out of there just because that is such a claustrophobic scenario to be in. Except not only do you feel like you cant move or breath, you also have big fists trying to hit you in your face. I certainly expect alot of fighters to have freaked out and tapped, or act more hurt then they are so the TKO gets called. I have so much respect for Fedor to fight through that especially since most other HW are alot bigger then he is. If i was a doctor i dont think there is a way in hell i would be able to get my self to call that fight after just witnessing that. After going through that 5min beating and doing EVERYTHING in your power to keep the fight going and get out of there. How the hell can you get yourself to just make it worth nothing?? Its like you put him in that 5min beating, watched him struggle with every ounce of his body and then just say "Ahh well good job not getting knocked out but you might as well have because im calling this fight off".

Let the man go out on his Shield.

Fedor deserves all the respect in the world because of what he did in that fight he showed a ton of heart by never giving up and to be honest I was not a Fedor Fan until watching that
