Great fight, just bummed fedor lost again. As far as the stoppage, could have maybe gone a second longer, but not the worst stoppage we ve ever seen.

He didn't cut him. He just made a wise decision to not pay him $250,000 per fight.

Because at the time Hendo was asking for way too much money in Zuffa's mind. I can only imagine what Hendo will be asking for now.

I didn't like that stoppage, I thought Dan was winning and wasn't hurt but I did feel that Fedor was still defending.

My Stream isn't that good. Was it early? didn't look like it to me but like I said my stream wasn't the best.



It's tough to tell from the angle of the camera, but Fedor definitely went limp, which is what queued the ref to step in. He postured up just a second or two later, but it looked as thought he went out and came to.

Yeah the angle wasn't the best.

I think that ( his face going into the mat) was partly due to the fact the hendo was using hip pressure to push him into the mat. I would have liked it to go on a bit longer but it wasn't a horrible stoppage and it is hard for a ref to see how a fighter is doing when he is belly down.

when it happened i didnt see the punch that put Fedor out so it seemed awefully fast but on the replays he was clearly not defending himself.

I think it should have continued a bit longer but it was in the heat of the moment and I couldn't say if it was right or wrong. I think it's just a matter of opinion.

This is my interpretation of it as well. Fedor went out when he face planted, but to his credit he recovered amazingly fast. Just not fast enough. The camera angle was garbage but I'm sure Herb saw something in Fedor's eyes that told him it was over. Fedor looked reasonably coherent when Dan was pulled off but you could tell that he was still hurt.


Crazy fight. Wish it would have went longer.

I think it was a bit early. Fedor was still defending himself, the follow up shots hit him in the back of the head, and the fight was called off as he was turning his body into Henderson's.

Great fight, but it should have gone longer IMO

Anyone saying early stoppage the truth was when he fell on his head from a punch you could see him limp and that when it should be stopped...But I woulda loved to see it keep going just Dan beating his azz some more...Fedor was overrated all along....

Anyone I know that doesnt see this obviously use to say how great he was...I never thoguht for a sec he could beat Cain Velasquez and quite frankly I think Brock Lesner would wrestle him down pretty easy cause hes just too small for Brock...

Cain I think would just be way too much...

One things for sure i know Fedor lovers who are now hanging on Rampage will get their mouths shut once and for all when Jones beats him down...

No more Fedor talk....priceless...
