Strikeforce: Dan Henderson stuns Fedor Emelianenko
I'm stunned. At 4:12 of round one, Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Dan "Hendo" Henderson def. Fedor Emelianenko via TKO in one of the most amazing MMA comebacks I've seen. Fedor says he thinks the stoppage was premature. Herb Dean is a great ref and it would have been nice to see Fedor try to recover, but let's face it--he was getting his ass handed to him when Hendo got control and had those H-Bombs swingin'.
Here's UFC President Dana White's thoughts on the commentators describing Fedor as the Michael Jordan of MMA:
Michael Jordan of MMA!? Dumbest thing ever said!!! So stupid
Looks like Fedor is done under the Zuffa banner and he's got no one to blame but himself for three straight losses. Oh, and his M-1 Global management for crapping on UFC negotiations just a couple of years ago. Definitely a legend and one of the all-time greats, but not fighting in the UFC truly hurts Fedor's legacy. It's a shame. Dont feel too bad though. He'll return to MMA. It won't be because of God, but rather the crapload of money someone will pay him. It just won't be Zuffa.
