Tremendously exciting fight!
Great stoppage - Those comparing this to Kongo/Barry, Kongo wasn't laying face down on the mat with his arms and legs limp, if Kongo wasn't falling down, he was recovering. Fedor was face down, limp, getting bombed on. That is the exact point a fight should be stopped.
DQ? - Well, the people calling for a DQ are the posters who are borderline... well.. whos opinions I take with a grain of salt anyway, so I don't feel compelled to make a big argument against it. I will just say that you probably don't know what it's like to try to finish a fight, let alone on that level. The shots really weren't that blatant to the back of the head, it was just the way Fedors head went limp. For the record, Fedor actually hit Henderson multiple times in the back of the head in their scramble, more than twice, and he was certainly going for the kill. I feel like some people are being a little emotional about the whole thing, but that is to be expected by passionate fans I guess.
Fedor should retire? - No, he shouldn't if he doesn't want to. He got into a wild brawl with Dan Henderson, exacly Henderson's style. He did exactly what he did in the Werdum fight, and that is fall into his opponents game. He ended up getting his lights shut out, but it wasn't so violent that it should be the end of his career.
Fedor at 205? - PLEASE!!! What the hell Fedor? Come on man, the dream is over at HW, time to get to work again and wreck shop at LHW.
