He didn't get KO'd , they stopped it. It was a miracle he got out of that 2nd rd with all that damage. No HW in the UFC could deal with this guy, especially Lesnar.
I knew this was going to be tough for Fedor. That guy is a monster with that giantism disease. He cuts to get to 265 and they say he weighed in at 285 tonight and he's still skinny as hell. Giving up 50 lbs to a skilled fighter like that is just too much.
I just hate this ****, because now Dana White will start running his mouth.
You are foolish to think Fedor could have done any better in UFC than he did at Strikeforce. He was sluggish in all three fight at Strikeforce and the only reason he won one of the three, was because Brett Rogers is the same hard headed, heavy puncher that Fedor is, just not nearly as hard hitting.
And why shouldn't Dana White talk about the talent he has in UFC? He has some of the world's best. Frank Mir is on the down slide of his career and he could whoop Fedor. Cain would annihilate him! Junior Dos Antos would annihilate Him, Shane Carwin...
Look, I would put a healthy Rashad Evans against Fedor at this stage of the game!
Fedor was treated like a red-headed step child. He came out swinging because he knew he had to catch the big man with the vicious right hand and when he couldn't slow Silva down, he knew he was in trouble. After the fight he looked nothing like a great fighter. He was completely deflated. The ref probably should have stopped that fight. Fedor was lucky Big Foot punched himself out because he never would have been able to with stand another 30 seconds of the pounding he took between th 2:45-1:00 minutes mark. That last minute Silva was too tired to throw many more of those bombs!
I never thought I would find myself defending a ****head like Dana White but he has the most talented fight organization in the world. The talent in the HW division in all the fight leagues I have seen is thin, maybe 5 or 6 top notch fighters. But Strikeforce and this Heavy Weight Grand Prix is comical since out of the 8 only 3 would be top HW's in UFC. You could replace the other 5 with 5 UFC HW's no problem. The one thing I will say is at this stage Allistair Overeem would likely win the HW title in either league. But we'll see if he can make it out of this tournament. The other russian could end up winning. He looked impressive walking right through an over the hill Igor.
