I agree though, that he's not a thrilling person, but that's one of the reasons I like him haha. I'm probably just bias because he's a nice guy, doesn't seem like an MMA fighter at all. Same reason I like Frank Shamrock, he's a nice guy in person.
It's all good mate, fair enough querying it as not many people do dislike Henderson. I don't actually hate the bloke, he seems like a decent guy, but there's just something about him that bugs me. It's mainly been since TUF where I just didn't think he came across well AFAIC, and then the whole thing about demanding ridiculous cash and a title shot from the UFC bugged me too, as given his selling power there's no way he deserves to be one of the Top 3 earners in the company; and at the time Marquardt deserved a shot more, and Belfort provides a far more exciting PPV prospect.

The money thing I wasn't really behind, I understood why he was asking for it, he is a great fighter, but I also understood why the UFC wouldn't give it to him, because he really is not a huge draw. The title shot bothered me, because Dana said the winner of Bisping v Henderson was getting a shot. I feel like if Bisping had outpointed Dan and won the fight, we'd already have seen Bisping v Silva.

Belfot getting the shot made me really mad, he won a single fight at Franklinweight, not at middle weight and he gets the title shot that would have made me mad even without Hendo v Bisping. I don't think Vitor has a shot either, Silva is going to counter punch him into submission inside of two rounds, if that fight ever actually happens that is.

But I know what you mean about there just being something about a guy. I can't stand Kenny Florian, I have no idea why, I just want to see him lose every time he fights.

Haha, I don't have anything against him as a person or some shit. I'm just not a fan of watching him fight.

I always thought the term glass jaw was used to describe someone who is knocked out seemingly easily, Andrei Arlovski for example. Not sure I agree with Cain being put in that category. He is majorly over-rated though, and the Cain bandwagon is a bit annoying.
Kongo`s shots were not that heavy, come on I hate that excuse Kongo has fought how many fights in the UFC, funny how he has never shown this ability to drop everybody else with every punch, every time they engaged Kongo rocked Velasquez and the only thing that saved him is he is a great wrestler so as soon as he gets hurt he shoots, we see wrestlers do it all the time in order to try an recover. Problem for Kongo is his TD defense doesn`t exist so onto his back he goes to flop like a fish out of water while Cain plays paddycake with him till the round ends, lather, rinse repeat.

Agreed 100%. The Velasquez bandwagon will say "ooh he took a shot on the chin from a "striker" () and didn't get KO'd! He's got a rock solid chin!!!"

He got rocked with every clean shot he took and he got dropped hard, wtf. Just cause he wasn't 100% out doesn't mean he's got a great chin. JDS took a HUGE right hook from Yvel (a dude with 30+ KOs) and the announcers didn't even notice it because it didn't phase him at all. THAT'S a strong chin.

theres something about KennyFlorian.. i dont know
Hes improved a lot, from being a jj competitor to learning muay thai. anyway, theres sth about him i dont like.
Something in his face, like Frank mir. I hate the cocky look on their eyes.

bisping is plain and simple annoying, not only cocky but so full of himself make me hate his british accent. The pre fight talk where he kep`t sayin ' Dan Andersen '. What a KO !

Also I sont like Keth Jardine. Hes awkward. His goatee beard is stupid
