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.
I agree straight up. Didn't even see Dan ask Fedor/trainers/doctor to see if he wanted to continue. We all know what the answer would have been. Kinda glad he didn't call it off though in those tense moments. He may have lost, but his WILL was not broken.

Fedor took everything he had in the top position, got flattened out with a RNC almost, somehow withstood the arm triangle choke, escaped the knee bar, and even put in his own submission.

Yah I HATE the mount position. Glad I learned how to get out of it, but it's super tough when someone is pounding you and weighs that much. I wonder if he tried hip escaping or bumping and reverse. Again I think it was just too much weight.

Not the results I expected or wanted to see. It's all on Overeem now. If Werdum beats em...forget about the SF tourney. All the favorites are gone. Who knows Barnett might win and end up testing for PEDs and shutting down SF. Then the entire roster gets absorbed into the UFC. Fedor comes back and becomes champ...haha! Wouldn't that be something...

I guess a slight difference to Lesnar's reactions when being dominated could be observed...

Lets face facts the sport has evolved, everyone knows it, Fedor was the last standing P4P name worthy talent of the old generation that used to play by different rules, used to compete against different types of fighter but not against good all round MMA fighters.

Its fitting that he was the last man standing in that respect because he was the best of the old generation and arguably is the man who set the benchmark for the next generation of good all round MMA fighters exceed.

This fight truly did symbol the passing of the touch, the rest of the old generation who Fedor stood above had already been surpassed so Fedor alone kept hold of that torch, it was not one man in Big Foot Silva who took that Torch from him, it was the next generation of fighters who needed to put the past behind them to make room for themselves to make there own mark in the sport.

Did Fedor show Heart? He gave nothing else but.

I keep waiting for you to go back to the sherdog forums or get banned...

Id prefer

It was a lot of heart but Silva is not a serious top ten fighter IMO, I think a lot has changed and Fedor is losing so much size to a lot of the guys now I think it changes how he needs to fight.

Anyone see this picture by the way?


Classy act from Barnett
Well they have become very close friends over the years.

I'm not going to say Fedor was going to make an epic third round come back, but it was possible. Silva was slowing, Fedor's still had the will to continue, anything could have happened. It was a garbage stoppage and I'm not even a Fedor fan.

Either way I still don't see why hes getting crapped on so much. The man himself has never spoken with such arrogance to deserve it and this is only the third loss of his entire career. Which just happens to be another controversial stoppage. Everyone loses.

Wile I agree he "could" have came in and won the third and Silva was slowing down, That was not a garbage stoppage. His eye was closed and he had taken a lot of damage, I think he could have gone on but there was enough damage there to justify stopping the fight, that was not a 'BAD CALL" it was a safe call and I cant argue with keeping the fighters safe.

A very regrettable stoppage with all Fedor endured to make it through the round. It was a doctor's stoppage and no doctor is going to, or should let a fighter continue with that much damage to an eye. I am sure Fedor would have, if they let him though.

I dont know what Doctor stopped it but he better watch his back with the Russian Mafia...

But Fedors eye was completely shut, and the dude has a whole country of pressure on his back, and showed amazing heart, i thought he was just going to go to sleep, and was amazed when i saw him make it out of it, then surviving that Full Mount position and prevented a KO that would of happened to 90% of fighters.

I was so happy when he made it out of that second round, and even with one eye shut and one eye open, i think he still could of pulled something crazy... If anyone could it would be Fedor...

Even if the stoppage has some justification to it, it was the worst thing to see... I mean its Fedor... Just let him do his magic....

Fedor has already cemented his legacy.

There were already whispers before this fight of him retiring.

Fighter's are technically better.

He just doesn't seem into it anymore. With age, comes fatigue.

His body and style does not help either.

He has taken enough punishment.

Long live 'The Last Emperor'.
