Well I was about to argue the point till I saw this gif. This camera angle clearly showed he was out...sadly. Man, one punch from behind.

Well, guess that puts things into perspective for Anderson Silva. "The Spider" is the P4P greatest!

Yep he went out on the uppercut, faceplanted to the canvas and Hendo got a couple of more in while he was limp than woke up when Herb broke it up. It's almost one of those calls where you feel bad for the fighter because he recovered so quickly but when your out your out whether its 1 second or 1 min, so the ref has to be consistent and stop it when they go out of consciousness.

Regardless I always liked Fedor's attitude in and out of the ring a very humble and respectable fighter.

Fedor did go limp after that upper cut you can't deny that. I'm a big Fedor fan and it hurts to see him lose for the third time in a row. I don't think Fedor has the desire anymore and his family is what he wants to focus on now.

I find it weird how many people are completely ignoring those vicious shots to the back of the head and simply saying "good stoppage."

It seems after this, every fighter out there, after they rock their opponent, should just wail away on the back of their head to end the fight. The ref isn't going to give a shit because it looks like he is protecting the fighter and the winner will be able to dismiss it as the rush of finishing the fight.

Crap.

I think it was stopped early. Fedor got funky but recovered quickly and was defending himself. I've seen him in worse shape and come back to win.

Bottom line two evenly matched, evenly sized guys who put on a f'ing great fight....could've gone either way, imo.

Dozens if not hundreds of fights are finishing like this. As someone mentioned it's almost like the rules are lenient when a guy is rocked. Look at Overeem vs Rogers, most hit the back of his head. If I could be bothered i'd think back and could find lots of high profile fights that are similar.

Come on man.... He was KO'd before the shots to the head but IMO those shots landed on the back of the head but you can see he is trying to hit the side of the head. But it doesnt matter Fedor was KO'd on the uppercut. Fight was over at that point in time.

I dunno, I'm usually a big herb fan but this call was questionable. Fedor did go down for a moment and was definitely dazed but he recovered right before herb intervened. Not trying to make excuses here, Dan got a good one on him, but he himself was in trouble seconds before. Fedor dropped Dan went in for some ground and pound Dan recovered, reversed and threw the uppercut that was a beauty. That gif doesn't show the whole picture IMO. For that you have to see the last 10 secs of the fight.

BTW with the exception of the knockdown, I had Dan winning the fight up until then. Fedor should take retirement into consideration, he has done enough for the sport and will always be a legend.
