Clearly a good stoppage. Fedor falls on his face and is clearly unconcious. At that point, the ref has a split second to make a decision: do I step in an end the fight, or do I let an unconcious continue getting pummeled? The second Herb Dean saw that Fedor was no longer defending himself, he stepped in. Fedor was not recovering from that blow or the subsequent blows that would have followed. Of course Fedor is going to say it was early… no one remembers the part while they were unconcious.
Excellent stoppage. Excellent fight. Both fighters are legends and it’s time Henderson starts getting the credit he deserves. I mean, look at his list of victories. He’s beaten Fedor, Babalu twice, Franklin, Bisping, Wandy, Belfort, Noguiera twice, Bustamonte… not one of these guys are a slouch or a fake!
