So.. Fedor’s eye is fine. No Broken Orbital.

Fedor was cleared already:
Funny they let KOS fight for 5 rounds with a broken face bone but Fedor couldn’t fight another 5 minutes with a little hematoma?
This was officially a bad stoppage and one crappy doctor. Not trying to nuthug Fedor but it was an important decision where the outcome of another round was important. Fedor was busted up but Silva was gassed and Fedor has a history of finishing things at the last minute. Who knows.February 13, 2011 at 10:50 pm #114599
woops. sorry for the double post.February 13, 2011 at 11:34 pm #114606
eh, better to take precaution in a sport that involves serious potential for bodily harm, especially if the guy can’t effectively see out of his eye.
i wouldve been interested to see if he could turn it around in the 3rd as well but i guess thats just the nature of the sport.February 13, 2011 at 11:46 pm #114608
I will say this, Fedor is fucking tough. Seriously tough. He took a horrendous beating in the 2nd round and had to be stopped from fighting. Nobody can question that.February 13, 2011 at 11:53 pm #114611
That second round was helaclious. And the first was back-and-forth and awesome. It sucks, but you can’t let him go out there for another round with his eye like that.February 13, 2011 at 11:56 pm #114612
True, I don’t think he should’ve continued. He could’ve permanently lost vision in that eye.February 14, 2011 at 12:06 am #114615

This guy, whoever the hell he is, gets it.
His eye was completely fucked, can’t risk a permanent loss of vision or a reenactment of the eyeball scene from any given Sunday.February 14, 2011 at 1:04 am #114626
1st round I felt like I-Fed (get it?) was bringing it all. Second round was a heavier stronger man putting Fedor in the worst possible positions but Fedor pulled through. There is a breaking point where fighter give up and they will let a choke slide through or just turtle up until it ends. Fedor did not reach that point. He has no quit.
I would have loved to see the third but that eye was bad and I agree with the stoppage.
The end has arrived or is near for The Emperor. The next generation is in full bloom.April 16, 2011 at 8:56 am #120450
