4_stars_best_mma_fight_of_2011_mma_video_allthebestfightsReview: 2011-07-30, Fedor Emelianenko starts strong but Dan Henderson does not seem intimidated and replies to the blows of the Russian. In the last minute of the first round Fedor Emelianenko punches Henderson with some hard shots that knock down the American but after a few seconds “Hendo” surprises Fedor with an uppercut and the referee stops the fight (probably too early). Even with a referee decision the fight was very exciting: 4 stars (third consecutive defeat of Fedor “The Last Emperor” Emelianenko). Watch the video!

    they stop to early .Because they want that USA guy win .UFC and all this MMA favorite USA fighters and they get privilege and they have much easy way to top than other nationality.
    We know that MMA can changed second to second but in this cause they didn’t let Feodor to do more

    • Ham

      OMG he was out are you blind ?

  • chad

    Are you kidding me. This was stopped tooooooo early. Fedor hadn’t given up. He was still fighting. How could they stop a legend like that? It’s a shame. Hendo did great scrambling out, and he might have won, but it was toooo early.

  • Shamrock

    It’s the third time that i see this video and i always want to say: ” what’s wrong with UFC referees?

  • jayman777

    Stopped too early. No question about it. Emelianenko defintely was not TKO’d.

  • hmmm

    no….. that was stopped right on time. Fedor got knocked out.

  • Bertz

    too early

  • pinoy

    KO!!! cant you see fedor was out. tsk HENDO is d man

  • jojo

    Too soon. Typical Herb Dean. I want McCarthy on every big fight, but one man can only stretch so far. Fedor was def stunned, but he had rolled and put his hands up before Dean stopped it. Ridiculous.

  • GeeMan

    Thats completely insane. He was, by no meens, knocked out. Hendo was on the path to the victory but damn, that was a shortcut. Fedor will be back though.

  • AreYouStupid?

    Fedor was knocked the f*ck out. He never would have been able to recover if the ref allowed the ground and pound to continue.

  • Stupid American

    Good stop. Fedor went limp momentarily and was not defending himself. The ref probably saved the quality of his life 10 years from now.

  • No way

    Henderson made a great escape, but it was to early to stop the fight.Fedor in previous fights  has shown  that he is able to handle with more punishment than that

  • Romey Rome

    DUDE he was not knocked out!! I replayed it like 10 times he still had plenty left!!.  LOL im glad Joe Rogan didnt comment this fight he would’ve flipped!!

    • aboutadolla like99cent

      DUDE  you dont wait for someone to be asleep to stop the fight. he was not intelligently defending himself, and that ends the fight. period. I am a huge fedor supporter and I was glad to see that fight stopped. Idk about you but want fedor back on the canvas soon

  • Ham

    LOL he went limp he was out for 2 sec it was the right call great fight :)

  • Dwash8000

    Funny how nobody realized how much damage the knees to the thigh did to Fedor, after they broke the clinch against the cage you could see he could barely move around..Dan tried to take advanatge but it ended up on the ground & he finished it there..it started w/ the knees to the thigh though

  • Bignick9027

    When I first watched this fight I thought Herb called it too soon, but after seeing it again. Fedor, sadly, was out cold… Dan is a beast, and I can’t wait for him to fight the spider and kick his a*s!
