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 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.
