Dan Henderson Knocks Out Fedor Emelianenko
The end came 4 minutes into the very first round. Fedor started fast, trying to take Hendo out with punches but Henderson was ready and responded well with his own barrage of powerful shots that wobbled Fedor and made him back up. Dan Henderson looked to be getting the better of Fedor in almost every exchange of punches. The knock out happened when Fedor caught Henderson with some glancing punches and followed him forward while still throwing shots, making him fall to the floor.
As Fedor started to work the ground and pound he did not have full control of Hendo's hips and Hendo was able to turn and grab Fedor from behind. In this position, with both fighters on their hands and knees, Hendo landed a huge uppercut from behind which made Fedor just fold, hitting his face off the floor. Hendo followed up with some huge punches to the back of Fedors head and the fight was called to a halt.
In my opinion, Fedor was not knocked out, he was just hit with a punch that he did not see coming at all. It did not look at any point like Fedor was asleep so to speak. But he did go limp for a second or two, he was hurt, and that was enough for the referee to stop the fight. Good win for Dan Henderson and possible retirement for Fedor.
