    I see all the "early stoppage" stuff...
    What would have been better? Seeing him drooling? Stiffened up? What would have satisfied you?
    Is it possible the referee was just stopping more of the same?

    no they would be crying about how bad the refs are for letting guys take too many hits.

    Exactly. But now they'll just say "early stoppage" as if he needed to be dead for it to count.
    It was the first time he has been KOd... Sorry if his head didn't come off to prove it

    he was more definitively finished than Fedor was against him. Now that was an early stoppage.

    The stoppage was perfectly fine, no issues.

    They were both finished. Both dropped from being hit on the jaw.

    he wasn't out, but he was down. Dan has been rocked in a lot of his fights actually, he just has great recovery and impossible to shut down. It was early only if you wanted him to go unconscious, but like some one else posted, if you get brutally knocked down like that in succession, its a good time to stop the fight.

    I think a lot of it comes from the live viewing. In the replay you could see his eyes were closed and it was just muscle memory.

    Not sure about Hendo fans, but I would have preferred a decisive finish personally.

    fedor went limp and was face down ass up. He was knocked out

    Hendo was flat on his back with his eyes closed after a head kick. He was knocked out too


    Perfect stoppages on both of them

    I hate the stoppage. I hate Vitor.

    Unfortunately, what happened has happened. No use in griping about it.

    The stoppage would have been considered "early" if the ref stopped it after the uppercut.

    The ref actually did a very good job to be honest. And to those who say he was grabbing a leg: he was freaking looking up at the sky with his eyes closed while holding onto a leg. He probably didn't even know he was holding onto his leg.

    Good stoppage and I love Hendo. Initially it looked a bit premature but on replays there was no doubt.

    Good night, sweet prince. :icon_cry2
