    if that punch was from Hunt, Werdum might be stunned.

      What punch?!
      Fedor made a huge mistake jumping into the guard of Fabricio, and Fabricio did a good job pretending he was hurt cause it was obvious that none of those punches lended.

    I would’ve bet the house fedor would have won a rematch. He’s better than that. Yes I’m still butthurt. But I also had Dan Henderson winning by ko which he did. Still butthurt about that too

    When fighters reputations become legendary, they usually have a distinct advantage psychology in fights. The opposing fighter often will be a little more hesitant, emotional etc. Once Fedor lost the aura of invisibility, he was unable to get away with things he did before. He is definitely one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time. Too bad negotiations with UFC failed, otherwise we would have likely seen some more amazing fights from him. Lesnar, Cain etc.

      100%. Tyson had that same status but on top of that tyson beat you in the stare down and a lot of people just mentally quit before the fight even started. But once you show you’re beatable you lose that

    Knock Out what Knock out I saw a submission…still a loss but try to be accurate

      It didn’t say knock out anywhere. You misread.

    • Tom Devol

      It’s not a KO, genius. The headline reads “Fabricio Werdum Knocks Fedor From His Throne,” not out.

  • Hugh Shakeshaft

    So what Fedor is past his prime. I’d give my left nut to watch him fight again.
