Just felt like takin another look. The ref stops the fight 14 seconds in, one punch thrown.
What I found most interesting was the fit of rage from fedor at :54 when he learns the fight is stopped.

It wasn't a loss, I completely disagree with that call, because elbow strikes were ILLEGAL! Which is the same in Strikeforce. He almost lost by cut in the Lindland fight, but ended up pulling off an armbar.

Technically, Fedor won due to an illegal strike, but because Fedor couldn't continue and it was a tournament style event, someone had to move on. That said, they had to give Fedor an official loss to let Kohsaka continue.

The rematch put TK in the hospital for a while.



He was no Joke either. Some ancient history from the ancient one, TK was one of the original cross trainers in mma. Back around 1996(95?) he, frank Shamrock and Maurice Smith formed The Alliance and were really the first to share their knowledge in different disciplines and learn how they could put them together. Worked pretty well. They were the first well rounded mixed martial artists. It's hard to tell it today but because of the Alliance Frankie was once head and shoulders above anybody in the ufc and TK gave Randy and Nog all they could handle when they were young men.




...yeah I've got too much time on my hands... waiting for the rest of my family to get home from KY. gonna be late.

It's a legit loss as it was a tournament and Fedor couldnt continue because of the cut.

Was it an illegal strike ??? Yes it was.

If it wasnt a tournament Fedor should have gotten the win by disqualification.

But he didnt. Not a big deal as the loss was avenged and brutally.

I agree with all comments here, it was a legitimate loss due to the fact that he accepted the rules upon entering the tournament.

I'm a big Fedor fan but this loss, which everyone rushes to point out as a technicality and therefore not really a loss, kind of balances the Arona fight for me since I thought Fedor actually lost that fight.

Since everyone likes to put an asterisk next to his loss in this fight I always wonder why nobody puts one next to him for the Arona fight which he was gifted. You can't have your cake and eat it to. You can't ignore the official result here and then accept the wrong one there.

Haha, love the way that this was put. For sure, the judging on that fight was a bit odd. I don't see how Fedor won that one.

Beat me to it sugar-lips. Was about to say the same thing. If you want to discount this as a loss, you have to give him a loss for Arona either way. Either way you look at it he has a loss on his record IMO.
