Just watched the highlights from last night and how in the **** did Bader survive that high kick? It wrapped around his neck and connected with the back of his head.

Then the ground and pound, I wasn't even watching it live and I was thinking to myself somewhere Dan Hardy is bored watching Bellator screaming STOP THE FIGHT and Felder got a shiver down his spine and just started flipping out yelling STOP THE FIGHT! STOP THE FIGHT! in the middle of dinner with his family.

He always recovered quick the second knockdown was a good place to stop good reffing.
Just rewatched kongo vs barry don't call it till one guy stops or gets stopped.
