Fedor Emelianenko vs. Dan Henderson fight: early stoppage or not?
Do you think that was a quick stoppage?
I thought it was the worst stoppage I've ever seen in MMA. Fedor turned around and was about to get out of that position, and he did not appear to be seriously hurt.

He definitely went limp but was recovering when the fight was stopped. Hendo probably would've continued the assault and got the finish, but I think Fedor should've been givin the benefit of the doubt like Brock/Carwin. I think Dana is gonna slip a little something extra in Herbs next paycheck...

Fedor passed out but recovered just when the ref already made the decision to stop the fight. The ref can't pull back in that instance.
But IMO, Hendo was on his way to a KO win anyway with the way he was throwing those punches and Fedor's lack of defense.

Stopped too soon. Just because Henderson blitzed Fedor for 5 seconds of continuous punches doesn't mean Fedor was out. All the punches were hitting the arms and elbows of Fedor for crying out loud. And it wasn't as if Fedor was knocked out cold. He was fighting back from the ground position. Although, it wasn't on any guard position just that Henderson had the most advantageous mount on Fedor.

Early from my point of view but its probably different for the guy whos standing 2 feet in front of the action. He probably heard his face smack dead on the canvas and paniced.

it looked like an early stoppage to me ... that punch from hendo hurt fedor but he seemed to be recovering when herb stepped in ... i think he could've let them keep going and stepped in if hendo continued to land, i just think he pulled the trigger too quick

I think it was early, but you can't get hit and look like you straight up died.

It was an early stoppage. Dean should never ref a big fight like this again. He lost his touch.

i dont care what none of these idiots say on here, it was a good stoppage. when herb motha fuggin dean sees a fighter laying facedown and goes limp and doing nothing he has to stop the fight. if he stops it any later and gets badly BADLY hurt herb dean is on the hook for it and his job is on the line.
its his job to protect the fighter. Great Job Herb motha fuggin dean. Anyone that thinks otherwise is a complete douche bag and shouldnt watch fighting period or have an opinion
