Fedor would have had no problem tying up Henderson on the ground and he would have likely easily survived the rest of the round.
I am not even that big of fan of Fedor. I always just thought it was a bad stoppage.
In Frye Vs Shamrock they got into an exchange and Ken ate one and seemed to go completely limp and fell onto his back with arms at his sides. Had the fight been stopped then and there I believe Ken would have probably stood up on wobbly legs the way Fedor did. It wasn't, Ken revived, held on, recovered sufficiently and eventually put Don in an ankle lock. I can see where you're coming from.
I think a case can be made both ways. I don't think it's the worst stoppage of all time but I also think Fedor could have recovered.
